Announced on Tuesday, Hisense Chromebook is now available on the market, being accessible in Walmart, too. Customers can buy this new laptop for the price of 149 dollars. Probably, its price will be the most attractive feature. However, it doesn’t come with a lot of new specs, but due to its price, it will surely be an affordable laptop on the market, especially for people with tight budgets or for schools. Probably, every person will afford to buy a Hisense, so in different words, everyone will can a laptop.
Hisense Chromebook is considered to be a decent laptop, with a cute design, not so flashy, matter-plastic chassis and it is quite textured. The display is not so special and often met in low-end Chromebooks. To be mentioned that the video playback quality is quite good, and users will be allowed to play an action movie at full-screen, without having problems with hiccups. Although the viewing angles are limited and the brightness out at 200 nits, owners will still have a decent view when positioned in front of the display.
The base of the laptop seems to be of high-quality, featuring a metal plate that covers the wrist area around the trackpad. This is a big plus for the device, but users that doesn’t like the feeling of a cold metal under their hands, will probably feel a little uncomfortable. The keyboard is also quite good, too, but unfortunately it feels a little cheap. Probably, because of its hard-plastic keys. On Hisense Chromebook users will find a couple of connectivity features, like Bluetooth, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, two USB 2.0, one HDMi, an SD Card reader and audio.
Hisense Chromebook comes with Rockchip RK3288 CPU and it is one of the main reasons that contributes to the low-price. Google claimed that the battery will last 8.5 hours, but this will depend how long the laptop will be used for videos and gaming. It is worth mentioning that the Hisense laptop is not bad at all, compared with other laptops, for example the older ARM-based Chromebooks. Hisense Chromebook is definitely a good option for those who don’t want to spend a lot of money for browsing the web or watching a movie. For only 149 dollars, Hisense might even be the perfect laptop.
