Preview of the HP Chromebook 13 G1

At our request, HP sent us the HP Chromebook 13 G1 to have a look at this laptop from a USB-C perspective. Later this month, we’ll publish a full review but we’d like to give our first impression: tastefully designed, and ready for a home as well as business environment.

Tasteful understated logos on the lid

 

Hinge clearly visible but due to chrome lacquer, actually quite pretty

 

We didn’t much like the large black bezel but the top case is made of pretty brushed aluminum
