HP Chromebook 14 G3


If you want a PC to browse the Internet and to send a receive Emails there is an option that can avoid Windows. It is a Chromebook. This rather nice offering is from HP and unlike the very early Chromebooks you can still work offline.

The HP Chromebook 14 is available from the link below for £240.

Looks really nice, great battery life, super fast boot up time and speedy operation.

None, really. It's not so much a bad point, but be aware that you're buying a chromebook, not a PC.

Really wanted to like this computer but screen resolution is lacking, rest is good


- Haven't maxed this out yet, but I'll search for a way to make the screen less washed out. Here's a link to a similar review on the screen resolution ( - So far the rest is good and I...

- Fast, sleek, easy web access, battery life, easy setup. - Not having to worry about OS upgrades, security, etc., is a big, bit benefit of a Chromebook. - Lower cost for this model (paid almost $1200 for a Lenovo Yoga Pro 2 over a year ago and this is...

- Screen looks washed out on this computer--my biggest complaint. - Not sure why they changed the keyboard for Chrome computers (no Caps lock, no Delete key, function keys, etc.). Probably to keep the price down, but we're taking a few extra bucks,...

Great laptop for a great price


Lightweight Great Battery Good Performance This is a great little laptop for the price and is perfect for what most people need for a personal/at home computer.

Less of a commentary on this model, but a warning on ChromeOS in general. Many older printers are not compatible with ChromeOS, so it is somewhat surprising for people to find their new laptop incompatible with their existing printer. All other...
