Almost anything becomes a little more appealing once the price goes down. Take HP’s Chromebook x2 11 tablet, for example. It’s currently selling for $299.99 at Best Buy, a price cut that’s mighty enough to outweigh its flaws. This one-day deal on the 11-inch tablet with Chrome OS makes for a much more compelling argument compared to its $599.99 regular price. When our own Dan Seifert reviewed the Chromebook x2 in December 2021, he scored it a 5.5 out of 10 due to its occasionally choppy performance. But for half price, it seems like a good deal.
What you’re getting today for $299.99 is a modestly sized tablet with a convenient 3:2 aspect ratio screen, making it taller than 16:9 alternatives, which is better for note-taking and web browsing. Its included pen and keyboard case with a kickstand give it a Microsoft Surface-like setup, and its portable size makes it easier to hold for content consumption and touch-focused tablet tasks. Its Snapdragon 7c Gen 1 processor and 8GB of RAM aren’t killer specs, but it’s a serviceable tablet for an exceptional price today.
