Bottom Line

The HP Chromebook 11 G5 X9U02UT#ABA is budget friendly and offers a simple overall user experience, but it’s entry level hardware may lead to a somewhat tired feeling laptop, especially under load.


The HP Chromebook 11 G5 X9U02UT#ABA has received positive reviews for its dependability when it comes to handling basic tasks, such as web browsing and video streaming. Users also liked that it in now supports Android apps, where the older G4 model didn’t. Its compact and lightweight construction, coupled with its long battery life of around 12.5 hours make it perfect for users needing a portable device and the price makes it very budget friendly. For the entry-level price, however, you will get entry-level performance, and the laptop may feel sluggish at times when it comes to multitasking and web browsing thanks to it only having 4GB of RAM and the Intel Celeron N3060. HP’s customer service is said to be poor and the 32GB of eMMC storage will fill up quickly if you do not make use of cloud storage. Lastly, one user noted that the speaker volume is rather low. The  HP Chromebook 11 G5 X9U02UT#ABA is good for the basics and its portability and great battery life makes it great for students, but throwing demanding tasks at it will force it to reach its limits fairly quickly.

    A fresh look and comfortable feel make HP’s 11-inch budget Chromebook an appealing bet, especially for households that need a cheap no-frills Web-surfing Google Netbook. If you’re not thinking about productivity, though, you’re better off with a tablet.
