HP Chromebook 14 G1 Notebook Review


Cute. HP adroitly shows us just how much laptop a Chromebook must have. We get solid build and power wrapped up in a classy design for approximately 375 Euros (~$406). Of course, some compromises will have to be made for this price.

Appealing design, Solid build, System performance, Decent input devices, Noise and temperature development

Maintenance options, TN screen's viewing angle stability, Possible restriction by Chrome OS

HP creates a well-conceived, 14-inch Chromebook with its G1. Users who limit themselves to fundamental tasks, such as office and Internet applications, and do not overdo it with them, will find a good companion in our review sample. We liked the design...

Works great


Good value for the price I would recommend it.

Got it for my mother who doesn't need a full PC but just needed a web browser and the fact that she felt comfortable with a laptop style device rather than a tablet etc. which made it a good fit . It is a fast, very well built device,looks good and she...

What an amazing value.


I've purchased a second for a family member, working as intended!

Takes care of 90% of your laptop needs. Syncs with all google apps and includes all comparable Office tools but googles version. Very happy with this product at this price.

For $179.99 I can't identify a negative for the amount value you get out of this thing.
