Hands on: HP Chromebook 14 (AMD) review

 

New on the inside, familiar on the outside

Potentially better graphics ; Thin, light and portable ; Long projected battery life

Squishy keyboard

The HP Chromebook 14 with AMD inside looks and feels like just about any other Chromebook, which may be a good thing. However, until a full review, we won’t understand the full impact of AMD on Chromebooks, if any.

HP Chromebook 14 review

 

A well balanced Chromebook

Excellent keyboard and trackpad ; Chrome OS is speedy and responsive ; Crisp, vivid screen

Not as powerful as some higher-end Chromebooks ; Average battery life

The HP Chromebook 14 is no performance powerhouse, but Chrome OS' speediness combined with a funky blue case makes this one fun notebook to use.

Working in the Cloud : HP Chromebook 14

 

They say “Every Cloud has a silver lining” but perhaps that lining should be chrome.

While laptops and notebooks continue to be a popular choice for many users, there have been a number of attempts to adapt this format with various offerings. Netbooks have come and gone, only to be replaced by the Intel-driven Ultrabook and the...
