HP Chromebook 11 unboxing and first boot

Posted by – October 29, 2013

I decided to buy a $279 ($303 with taxes) HP Chromebook 11 with the Exynos5250 Dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 with Mali-T604 inside, even though it would have been nice if it already would have been shipping with the newer Exynos5420 Octa Core ARM Cortex-A15/A7 with Mali-T628. I guess that Samsung doesn’t yet provide their latest big.LITTLE yet for third parties to ship in devices? As soon as a good cheap 13.3″ Exynos5420 Chromebook is available I’ll probably switch to that latest ARM Chromebook as my main video-blogging laptop.

HP Chromebook 11 launched $279, Exynos5250 (dual-core ARM Cortex-A15, Mali-T604)

Posted by – October 8, 2013

Yes! The Second ARM Chromebook is now released for $279, made by HP. But wait, still same Exynos5250? Why no Octa? Isn’t that the exact same Exynos5 Dual processor Samsung used in Samsung Chromebook released a year ago? Maybe it’s tweaked. This HP Chromebook 11 sounds to have a better IPS display, better build quality perhaps, MicroUSB charging (is it a 5A or at least 2A MicroUSB charger?) The really good news is that Samsung is providing its Exynos5 for ARM Chromebooks by third parties, such as the huge HP. It would be nicest to see Exynos5420 in there though. 28nm vs 32nm, Octa big.LITTLE vs Dual, Mali-T628 vs Mali-T604, 1.9Ghz vs 1.7Ghz, etc.
