HP Pavilion Chromebook 14


The HP Pavilion Chromebook 14 is the first Chrome device from HP, blending the best of a budget Pavilion with the web-friendly Chrome OS.

Larger screen will suit some, brighter screen than some competitors, SD slot for storage expansion, fast for browsing, SSD makes for quick start-up

No 3G, poor screen viewing angle, so-so screen resolution considering size, plasticky, OS/application limitations, average overall experience

The HP Pavilion Chromebook 14 isn't a revelation. It's a lot like an enlarged - and glammed-up thanks to its sparkly glossy plastic (make of that what you will) - version of the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook. The added screen size adds a few quid to the...

"Good, inexpensive laptop"


Good, inexpensive laptop that needs better instructions.

Small, light-weight, easy to use, long battery life

User Guide is worthless; you learn by using the laptop.
