The HP 2 in 1 14\u201d Chromebook is a premium chromebook targeting a niche high end market. Compared to Windows laptops in the same price class, it eschews fast hardware and a multipurpose OS for a very high-quality display to mixed effect; its screen really is gorgeous, but it\u2019s heavily limited by its lack of storage and lack of RAM, especially for $600. Even so, it\u2019s one of the best chromebooks for seniors thanks to its great display, simple OS, and adequate performance. Techies will lament its lack of Intel Core i3 or Intel Core i5 SKUs, but as far as premium chromebooks go, it doesn\u2019t get too much better than this unless you want to shell out even more for a Google Pixelbook.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - HP 2 in 1 14" Chromebook\r\nThe HP 2 in 1 14\u201d Chromebook is a chromebook that channels the spirit of the Google Pixelbook, delivering a top-quality display in a small chassis with decent hardware. Its ability to switch into a tablet mode and its ability to run Android apps make it a compelling overall package, though premium Chrome OS devices remain exceptionally niche.\r\n\r\nDisplay Type\/Resolution\r\nThe display is the main selling point of this machine, and for good reason; you\u2019re looking at a very crisp 2400x1600 IPS display with very high pixel density, high brightness, and excellent sRBG coverage coming in at over 110%. There\u2019s nothing to complain about here; it\u2019s a display you\u2019d expect to find on a much more expensive machine, and it blows similarly-priced machines out of the water in terms of display quality (save for discounted Surfaces). The screen is better than HP\u2019s own HP Chromebook x360 14, coming in at a higher resolution with better brightness and colors, but its hardware is worse.\r\nBattery Life\r\nBattery life is unsurprisingly good on the HP 2 in 1 14\u201d Chromebook, coming in at just shy of 9 hours at low brightness. It\u2019s sufficient for media consumption and web browsing even over long periods of time thanks to its combination of a very lightweight OS and its low power Core M chip.\r\nWeight\r\nThe HP 2 in 1 14\u201d Chromebook is a bit on the heavier side for its screen size and performance class, clocking in at just over 3 pounds. With that said, it\u2019s not heavy at all for laptop use; you\u2019ll barely notice it in a bag, though it\u2019ll be a bit heavy and awkward when used as a tablet.\r\nDurability\r\nDurability is about what you\u2019d expect out of a tablet. You\u2019re looking at a glass and aluminum slab that comes with a keyboard textured with fake leather; the keyboard cover doesn\u2019t provide much protection for the screen in the event of a long fall. The chassis is prone to scratches, but overall the device should hold up even across several years. If you\u2019re looking for a more traditional design out of concern of a tablet\u2019s durability, the Acer Chromebook 514 has similar build quality in a laptop form factor, but its hardware is slower and its screen is significantly worse.\r\nInputs\r\nPort selection is good for a tablet and poor for a laptop. You\u2019re looking at two USB Type C ports, a headphone jack, an SD card reader, and a proprietary port for docking the keyboard; there\u2019s no USB Type A, only USB C. Keyboard quality is mediocre, as expected of a tablet; the keys are small and extremely shallow, providing a middling but not terrible typing experience. If you need a better keyboard or USB Type A (while keeping in mind dongles exist), the Asus Chromebook C523NA fits the bill, but it has a worse processor and a worse display.\r\nHP 2 in 1 14" Chromebook Wrap Up\r\nAs far as Chrome OS tablets go, the HP 2 in 1 14\u201d Chromebook is a compelling offering. It\u2019s essentially an Android tablet on steroids, packing a full desktop web browser and laptop hardware paired with the Android and Chrome OS app ecosystems. It\u2019s a fantastic secondary machine, and it\u2019s great for less technologically inclined audiences, but if you\u2019re looking to use it as a main computer, you\u2019ll very likely want to look elsewhere.
