HP Chromebook 11 goes back on sale following recall

HP and Google team up to re-release the Chromebook 11 for under $400

The Google and HP developed Chromebook 11 has gone back on sale in Australia after a brief recall over the Christmas break.

Sales of the Chromebook 11 were halted after the ACCC issued a recall notice over concerns its Micro-USB charger could overheat and burn people. Initially Google touted the generic charger as one of the Chromebook 11’s advantages.

The Chromebook 11 has an 11in screen that has a 1366x768-pixel resolution. It is powered by a Samsung Exynos 5 Dual CPU, has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of SSD storage. The notebook comes with 100GB of Google Drive cloud storage for use with the suite of services featured in Google Chrome OS.

The chassis has been made from ‘light’ and ‘sturdy’ magnesium. Google estimates the 30 Watt-hour battery will keep the Chromebook 11 running for “6 hours of active use”.

The HP Chromebook 11 is available now from JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman or Google’s online store for $399. But before you commit, check out our upcoming review of the Chromebook 11, which we'll be bringing you as soon as possible.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
