first of all this is not for so called "Power" Users.
it's made for specific purpose.
good for students(creating word, excel,powerpoint,pdfs) and persons who only browse and watch videos.
1. great battery life 9 hrs (mac air book claims for 13 hrs @62000 approx)
2. fast boot time.
3. very light and slim
4.very less noise and almost no heat generated.
5.build quality very good.
1. low storage space
2. little costly, price should be around 15K
there has been lot of mis conception about chromebook about storage..... but realize that it's a SSD not HDD. SSD more costlier than HDD.
people compare this product with the cheap laptop available in indian markets. not all of them play games, not all of them write programs.
ultimately you have to decide if you want a cheap product with more features (although you will never use its complete power) or a quality product ( which will be sufficient for your use) in almost equal price tag.
But make sure about the buying purpose of your laptop carefully................
hope to see this ruling the market in future
The most practical machine ever!

I am a power user and have been using an Alienware and a Dell laptop with "you name it" specs. I picked up the HP chromebook from Reliance Digital, Ambience Mall Gurgaon for 17000 in an inaugural offer.
I swear to God, the only time I've picked up my Alienware or Dell is when I've had to use Photoshop, 99% of all my work gets done on the Chromebook. I use Google docs for excel, invoicing, accounts, use Facebook, Youtube and some random websites. That's about it.
It doesn't heat up, the battery goes on and on and on and on! I have 5 hours and 12 minutes remaining and it's 50% battery as I write this.
I love this thing!!
You a buying a browser and an irritating OS
by Ashutosh Srivastava on 2014-11-23
I have purchased chromebook about eigth months ago, just when I bout I I found that it cannot be connected to a Wifi which is WEP protocol enabled.
I Cannot install any software in it. Even the word and excel online by Google are unworthy as compared to MS office.
Google boasts of its strong OS but its the weakest. Chromebook OS gets frequently damaged and you have to send it to the service center again and again. The HP service center people haven't seen Chromebook before that's why they could not able to resolve the damaged OS issues. HP cannot take back its Chromebook even it is under warranty.
I frequently felt trapped after buying Chromebook. My best advise is not to go for this devise for sure even it you have found something good in it. It is worthless.
What you get with the Chromebook is just a browser and Google drive, the same things are also available with any computer online. so why to buy this expensive crap.
HP Chromebooks are Useless
by Shivani Singh on 2014-09-18
I hate this laptop. This is the worst purchase of my life. Even a smple thing like bluetooth does not work. Internet connection is also does not work. By far my worst HP product.
Highly expensive product

I have used several Personal computers with several configurations no body will prefer a Chromebook with limited options, for more than 26 K I find Google is using Chrome browser as a testing platform, The problem with Indian market is majority use cracked windows version, which makes no difference for a operating system, If the Google wants to monopolize the market the people cannot be more 20k or else it will become a failed experiment Dr.T.V.Rao MD Professor of Microbiology
