If you\u2019re looking for a good laptop for kids\u00a0and the best laptop, or for an inexpensive laptop to help you get through the work day, the HP Chromebook 14 should have you covered. Be sure you\u2019re getting the correct model for your needs, though, as your processor will change depending on what model you get.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - HP Chromebook 14\r\nThe HP Chromebook 14 is an excellent entry-level laptop that still sports much of the modern-day conveniences that more expensive models have. Chief among these conveniences include an incredible battery that should last you the whole day regardless of whether you're focusing on one thing or multitasking.\r\n\r\nPower\/Performance\r\nWith an AMD CPU rather than an Intel-based CPU, things vary between models. Whatever model you get though, there seems to be one consistency: stuttering. While not enough to mark the HP Chromebook 14 as unusable, it is definitely noticeable. More of an annoyance than anything, the Chromebook is still reliable and will get you through the day. Still, if you\u2019re looking for a more reliable alternative, you might want to check out the Acer Spin 11.\r\nBattery\r\nWhere the HP Chromebook 14 really shines is in its battery life. Sporting a 2-cell lithium ion battery, it's deceptively adept at lasting the whole day whether it\u2019s light browsing or working. With a hard to beat battery, those looking for a long lasting laptop should take the HP Chromebook 14 into account. It\u2019s not the longest we\u2019ve seen, admittedly, but at nine hours it still blows a lot of other laptops out of the water.\r\nPorts\/Expandability\r\nThe HP Chromebook 14 comes equipped with 4 USB ports, a security lock slot, a microSD reader, a USB type-C, and a headphone jack. An altogether fair port selection, but incredibly good considering the laptops price point, which even includes SD support to expand your memory. A feature those who work on large files will desperately need. Adaptable to any situation, the HP Chromebook 14 is ready to go to work.\r\nBuild Quality\r\nWhile it can\u2019t hold a candle to the build quality of the Apple Macbook Air, the HP Chromebook 14 is still a durable laptop that can withstand the rough and tumble of everyday use. Made out of a durable plastic, the Chromebook feels secure and durable enough to accompany anyone on a day to day basis without worrying about breaking it.\r\nValue\r\nThe first thing you should look for when considering the HP Chromebook 14 is what model you want. Normally this amounts to minimal differences, but with the Chromebook different models dictate what CPU you get. Depending on whether you get AMD or Intel, your performance might vary. But all models come with Chrome OS, so you\u2019ll be able to download your favorite apps from the app store. If you\u2019re in the market for a laptop with an Intel processor only, the Lenovo Flex 14 has an Intel CPU that can handle the most strenuous multitasking.\r\nHP Chromebook 14 Wrap Up\r\nWhile the great port selection, Chrome OS, and great battery are all excellent features that make the Chromebook 14 stand tall against more expensive models, the noticeable stuttering will bring it right back to Earth. It shouldn't affect anything you have to do, but it\u2019s an annoyance HP really should have picked up on before releasing.
