Chromebooks are a unique class of mobile computing devices, designed specifically for Web-based tasks. They differ from traditional laptops in a few important ways:
Chromebooks run Web-based apps, not traditional PC applications.
Chromebooks are designed to be connected to the Internet. You can create documents and spreadsheets or edit photos on a Chromebook using Google apps designed for these purposes. The Chrome operating system will not load and run traditional PC software like Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop. However, files created in these applications can be viewed and edited using Google apps on your Chromebook or cloud-based applications like Microsoft's Office web apps.
You store your files in the Cloud, not on the machine.
To help make them thin and light, Chromebooks are built without large-capacity drives. So instead of storing your documents, videos, and photos on your computer, you save them to Google Drive (Google's Cloud-based storage service). Your files are password-protected and secure, and you can access them anywhere there's an Internet connection. If you know you'll want access to a file or photo offline, however, you can easily save it to the built-in solid-state drive.
With the HP Chromebook 14 running lightning fast Chrome OS, the best of Google is at hand on a colorfully sleek and stylish notebook. Access your favorite websites and Google apps instantly on a big, beautiful 14-inch diagonal HD display. Auto-synch your data and stay connected everywhere with 100GB of Google Drive Storage.
Google Drive lets you store up to 100GB of data all in one place, so you can access and share your photos, files, videos and documents across all your devices - whether you’re at home or on the go. And automatic backups mean you'll never have to worry about losing what matters.
The HP Chromebook 14 is equipped with all your favorite Google apps like Gmail, Drive, and YouTube right out of the box. Access the Chrome Web Store for thousands of the latest games and productivity apps. Game, browse, and work in an effortless environment unlike any other.
Take the HP Chromebook 14 from your desk to the great outdoors while browsing the web, streaming videos, or using the latest Chrome apps, thanks to 802.11n WiFi.
The sleek design, finished in soft-touch paint, means you’ll stand out from any crowd you find yourself in.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
First, one of the keys was cockeyed when I first opened it. I snapped it into place but it would always come back loose again. I sent it to HP and was without it for about 2 weeks, but when I got it back, the key was fixed and I never had another issue with that. I do have issues whereas some of the keys have become blank from the letters rubbing off. If I had to depend on looking at the letters to know where the keys were, I would be in big trouble. I have 3 keys that are completely blank and a couple more that are almost blank.
After about a year, maybe less, the mouse would start freezing. I called HP and was told to do a powerwash. Well that suggestion sucked. I didn't want to lose my photos and such but I did it. And it did not fix the problem. So I youtubed it and saw where many people have this issue and they have to unplug the battery and replug it back in. This involves taking the chromebook apart.Luckily I have someone that can do that but many don't.
That would seem to work for a few months but then it would do it again. After doing this about 4 times over a years time, I just accepted the fact that I have to do a hard reset when that happens and I lose whatever I am working on.
Now my latest frustation is the sd slot. I take a lot of photos and I upload them using the slot. Now it will not recognize the sd card being inserted. I have yet to research that but it is annoying. I have to dig up my camera cord.
You might wonder why I gave it a 3 instead of a lower rating, with all these issues. I use my chromebook daily. I use it for both personal and business. I love it, when it is working. As much as I have had issues with it, I would take a chance on another one, but the price would have to coe down. I can't buy a new one every 2 to 3 years.
Maybe I got a bad chromebook.
Update - December 2017 my Chromebook died. The screen kept going blank. It was not a loose cord, or a fixable repair. I sent it to a computer repair tech and they tried several different things before declaring it unfixable. So 3 year is about the life you get from a Chromebook. I also work on 14 inch HP Chromebooks through my agency. My work computer does not get as much use as my personal one because I was using my personal one for both, but after I sent mine away and was waiting, I started using my work chromebook daily, and after awhile, it started doing the same thing. I had to get a new one for work.
These would be amazing computers if they worked out the flaws I have described in this review. A search will show these are common problems. It is a shame. I am debating whether I am going to get a new one for my personal use.
First of all, I find the screen to be superior to the others. It is glossy, which I prefer, and the brightness and colors are spot-on. I found the screens on Asus, Toshiba and even latest HP Chromebooks to be dull and somewhat "washed out" by comparison. I did not want the "Full HD" screens some manufacturers are releasing due to the higher resolution (smaller fonts).
The overall build of the HP models is much sturdier and more solid-feeling than the others in my opinion. The Toshiba and Asus felt like toys while this HP feels well-made like my wife's Mac.
The keyboard is great, also better than the others. It has an excellent, large trackpad
The speakers are amazing, pumping out much better and deeper sound than expected. Although I thought the processor and RAM specs were the same as the other Intel models I tried, this model seems faster than those and even better than the nVidia-powered unit I tried.
I love the look, with the overall white finish and silver trim- reminds me of the older iMacs and iBooks.
The closest thing I can say to a negative is that this is the only Chromebook I have tried with a fan- and after seeing (hearing?) how mice a fanless laptop is, it's a bummer to once again have a fan. But the fan is relatively quiet.
Since HP has apparently decided to get rid of the nice, glossy screens in all their Chromebooks, I'm tempted to get another "last year's model" HP14 as a spare! The screen is that much better.
NOTE: I thought I should post the following, regarding my impression that this Chromebook seemed a little faster than the others I tried. After writing this review, I ran the Peacekeeper benchmark on the machine. It scored nearly twice as high as the other Chromeooks I had benchmarked! In other words, it was apparently not just my impression but this model does run a little smoother. FYI.

Had my two kids perform an unscientific test of performance. Side by side, the two machines boot at basically the exact same speed. Web pages load at the same speed as well. I had been concerned by the lack of RAM but so far, there doesn't seem to be any sort of tax on the system. I have read that Chrome now uses a function under the hood called zRAM -- which basically compresses data stored in RAM and can make more memory available to your applications -- do a Google search on "enable zRAM in Chromebook" -- you can increase the amount of RAM in your system in about 5 seconds.
What I absolutely LOVE about these systems is the simplicity. As the at home "system administrator" PC maintenance and assistance was a major issue for the family. With the Chromebook(s) the new unit arrived (while I was at work) was unboxed, plugged in and happily running when I arrived home with ZERO administrative assistance required. We've had our first unit for over a year -- never any issues -- it runs as fast as the day we received it -- we have not found any limitations to what these machines can do -- note that we have been Google Apps users (Gmail, Calendar, Docs) for many years so naturally, these Chromebooks fit well into the way we were using these apps from home.
Cons: This is the worst screen I have ever used on any modern device. The resolution is fine but Chrome OS offers no contrast/saturation control and everything is very washed out unless I tilt the screen as far back as it allows. The rubbery-plastic material of the case looks great BUT is impossible to clean. I made the mistake of leaving it out where my nephew drooled a little on the lid and it seems to be have been absorbed by the material and WILL NOT come off. Be very careful about keeping yours clean.
Some positives worth noting:
- good design and build (finally a Chromebook that doesn't look really cheap)
- 14" screen
- battery life is huge (I've been getting 12+ hours per charge with moderate use)
- trackpad click is quite mushy (easily avoided by using tap to click)
As long as you know what chrome os is and are comfortable with its limitations, this is a winner (i.e. I would buy it again or recommend to friends).
I love the color, light weight and it's simplicity.
I love it soo much I might buy one for my daughter!
Did I mention how much I love it?! :)
