HP Chromebook 14 review

 

Colorful gadgets are mostly a ploy, I'm told. Best Buy shoppers may be drawn in by a purple camera or a shimmering orange laptop, but they leave the store with something in black. I've heard the...

Cool color options ; Excellent battery life ; Solid performance

Terrible display ; Definite low-end materials ; Heavy

A better version of the Chromebook 14 could be exactly what Chrome OS needs

HP Chromebook 14 review: It's bigger and better than most other Chromebooks

 

The 14-inch display alone makes this Chromebook a better deal than most others on the market, but it also offers great connectivity and long battery life.

Bigger display than most Chromebooks ; Nicer design than most Chromebooks ; Long battery life

Shiny display catches a lot of glare and reflection ; Half-size function and cursor keys

This Chromebook comes with a 14-inch display and cheery colors, making for a better overall user experience than you'll get from cheaper models.

HP 14-Q001TU Chromebook Review

 

To the point, and brilliant. The purpose of the Chromebook is fairly straightforward - straightforward computing at a low cost, and critically, good battery life. Anyone who is already relying on Google's own ecosystem of apps and services would find...

Meant for a specific use case, Much better experience than similar priced Windows machines, Excellent battery life, Very good keyboard

Not everyone can feel at home on the Chrome OS, Limited usability, for anyone who needs third party software

HP Chromebook 14 (with 4G) review: Solid performance in a plus-sized package

 

The HP Chromebook 14 combines great performance with a spacious display. So is it the right Chromebook for you?

Spacious LCD display; attractive, colorful design; solid performance; excellent battery life; 4G connectivity; USB 3.0 support; native HDMI-out port; SD card support

Bulky and heavy compared to other Chromebooks; display, design and build quality inferior to Chromebook 11; not silent during operation; 4G data service difficult to set up and refill

The Chromebook 11 may be the gold standard when it comes to display, design and build quality among low-cost Chromebooks, but the Chromebook 14 (4G) isn't terribly far behind. And from its stepped-up performance to the expanded connectivity options it...

HP Chromebook 14

 

Excellent keyboard and trackpad ; Chrome OS is speedy and responsive ; Crisp, vivid screen

Not as powerful as some higher-end Chromebooks ; Average battery life

The HP Chromebook 14 is no performance powerhouse, but Chrome OS' speediness combined with a funky blue case makes this one fun notebook to use.

HP Chromebook 14

 

HP's Chromebook 14 is attractive and comfortable to use, but it's also quite heavy and has a high asking price

Comfortable to type on ; Good overall performance ; Full-sized SDXC slot and full-sized HDMI

Screen reflections can be annoying ; Feels heavy ; White finish can end up looking dirty

Screen reflections can be annoying ; Feels heavy ; White finish can end up looking dirty

If a large Chromebook is what you're after, then HP's 14-inch model should be considered. It's the biggest one we've seen, and the most luxurious to use for long periods of typing. It's a heavy unit, though, and it has a high price.

HP Chromebook 14 review

 

There’s a lot to like about the HP Chromebook 14. It’s big, nice to use, and offers something a bit different to Chromebook users. We’d like to see an improved screen quality to really make it stand out, and maybe a firmer keyboard, but if you want a...
