Reviews for the HP Chromebook 14-q029wm
Source: PC World
HP’s Chromebook 14 does most of the competition one better, just because of its larger display. Maybe you’d weep a little more if your kid destroyed this model rather than one of the cheapies, but anyone who enjoys the Chrome ecosystem will appreciate the better user experience this model provides.

One of the few places a person can buy an HP Chromebook 14 is WalMart where they cost $349.99 for the T-Mobile version. Amazon sells the Wi-Fi only version with just 2GB of memory for $245.95, but buyers will wait 2-3 weeks for shipment. At that price the HP Chromebook 14 is a steal for people who understand the limitations of the ChromeOS and who won’t load a lot of browser tabs or web apps at once. We love this machine’s great keyboard, better than average trackpad, excellent performance and battery life in an attractive package. Buyers needing a second laptop for the basics or people who can work in a browser 100% of the time will like the balanced approach of value and usefulness.
