$100 bump in price gets you connection to the Verizon network
Following an extensive recall of faulty chargers, the HP Chromebook 11 is finally back up for sale in the Play Store. Equipped with a newer (and much nicer) charger, you can pick up the Chromebook 11 for the same $279 price — that'll get you an Exynos 5250-powered laptop with 2GB of RAM and a 1366 x 768 display. Every color is in-stock, save for the white with blue accents model.
As liliputing found this morning, Best Buy has quietly listed the HP Chromebook 11 with an LTE connectivity option at its online store as well. While the laptop doesn't quite show up in search results just yet, a direct link to the listing shows a $379 price with the potential for a $50 mail-in rebate. You'll be limited to just Verizon LTE, but if you're a Verizon customer you'll be able to add it to a shared data plan for just $10 — not a bad deal.
While we don't recommend the HP Chromebook 11 head-to-head with better options like the Acer C720, the existence of an LTE option may put a few people over the edge into buying territory on this one.
