HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook Review

 

The Pavilion 14 Chromebook is cheap and cheerful, but that's not enough to make Chrome OS an alternative to Windows 8 for the average consumer.

HP’s Pavilion 14 Chromebook could serve the role of being someone’s sole PC. A large keyboard, reasonable processor, and low price combine to make a very attractive low-cost system that anyone could pick up and use for most computing tasks. Battery...

HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook review: a first attempt at Chrome OS that cuts too many corners

 

Things have been pretty quiet on the Chromebook front since the launch of Google's gorgeous, but pricey flagship, the Pixel. It's arguably a hard product

Snappy performance ; Decent speakers ; Solid build quality

Poor keyboard layout ; Antiquated trackpad ; Lackluster display ; Mediocre battery life

HP's 14-inch Chromebook offers zippy performance and solid build quality, but ultimately cuts too many corners. The poor keyboard layout and antiquated trackpad make this machine particularly hard to recommend.

HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook review

 

Sitting down in front of the $329 HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook, one could be forgiven for thinking this is just another in a long line of slim plastic laptops with budget prices. I previously reviewed the HP Pavilion TouchSmart 15z , an ultrabooklike...

The HP Pavilion Chromebook 14 feels more like a traditional laptop than other Chromebooks. Its big screen and Chrome's improved offline capabilities make a better case for the category.

Other Chromebooks perform better and run longer. The limited Chrome OS is still not for everyone, or even for most. This model lacks the mobile broadband that makers of other Chromebooks have touted as a must-have feature.

The HP Pavilion Chromebook 14 advances the argument for Chrome as a low-cost mainstream computing environment, but the laptop's most noteworthy feature is a slightly bigger screen.

HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook Review

 

HP has officially entered into the Chromebook market with their new $329 Pavilion 14 Chromebook. As a laptop, it doesn't deviate too far from HP standards, and it still sports the same curves and style that you'd expect out of a laptop from the...

The HP Pavilion 14 is the company’s first stab at a Chromebook, and instead of just mostly copying what Samsung and Acer have done with their Chromebook options, HP made a one-of-a-kind option, with the minimalistic performance and operating system...

HP Pavilion 14-bk series review

A mid-price laptop with the latest Intel 8th-generation processor, on paper the HP Pavilion 14-bk052sa appears a great choice for students or those looking to get some office work done. HP has a patchy history in our reviews though, and we never know...
