This 11-inch Chromebook features a thin profile in a sturdy design with manageable, secure ChromeOS. Both colors pick up and prominently display fingerprints, and the body tends to flex and creak if you pick it up in not quite the right place; the lid in particular flexes violently and terrifyingly every time you touch it.
