On the storage front, it comes with 16GB internal storage which can be expanded via SD card slot. On the connectivity front, it has 2 USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port and Bluetooth 4.0 and is powered by a 4200mAh battery. It also has a 1MP web cam.
In our review, we had noted that the Xolo Chromebook’s biggest advantage is that it is really light and weighs just 1.15 kg. The matte finish screen is quite good and you can read and watch videos even when you keep the brightness level at half.
For users who live in the the Google Universe, the Chromebook is perfect. It starts up pretty fast, there is virtually no lag, no worries of app freezing. We also managed to get 3G dongle to run with the Google Xolo Chromebook and it worked just fine, although we could not much data was consumed.
While there is only 16 GB space, users can easily connect a hard drive and watch movies, play music, etc. While the Chromebook does not support all formats, all VLC supported files played easily.
Unfortunately the biggest concern with Chromebooks is that in India getting constant Internet connectivity is not always possible. However Google docs and Gmail Offline are two apps that are very helpful once you’ve synced them properly. Read our full review here.
