Optics include an HP TrueVision HD webcam at 720p resolution, and storage options can be configured either to 16GB or 32GB.
The touchscreen variant weighs about 1.14kg, while the standard model weighs 1.18kg. Furthermore, the HP Chromebook 11 G5 touchscreen variant lasts for about 11 hours on a single charge, while the standard model lasts for about full 12 hours 30 minutes.

HP’s Chrome OS lineup also includes Chromebook 11, Chromebook 11 EE, Chromebook 13, and Chromebook 14.
