Just the basics. With the advent of Chromebooks came an assortment of netbook-like machines that were often accused as being underpowered and undersized. With its larger size, can HP’s Pavilion 14 Chromebook prove to compete on the same level as the basic home notebook?

While the $329 HP Pavilion Chromebook 14 isn't the cheapest of the inexpensive Chrome devices, it's still a heck of a lot less than most budget laptops, and is perhaps the easiest transition from Windows to Chrome. The full-size keyboard and 14-inch display will be welcomed by anyone who thinks the 11- and 12-inch Chromebooks a tiny and cramped, and the whole package is slim and light enough to pick up and take on the go. Unfortunately, the larger design doesn't translate into longer battery life. While the longer lasting Acer C7 Chromebook (C710-2055) is our Editors' Choice for inexpensive Chromebooks, the HP Pavilion Chromebook 14 is still a solid entry into the unique category, and a solid deal for the always online set.

HP’s Pavilion 14 Chromebook could serve the role of being someone’s sole PC. A large keyboard, reasonable processor, and low price combine to make a very attractive low-cost system that anyone could pick up and use for most computing tasks. Battery life is the system’s only disappointment, but an extended battery that roughly doubles endurance is available.

A first attempt at Chrome OS that cuts too many corners
Source: Engadget English
If -- as HP suggests -- there's a market for a larger Chromebook that spends most of its time at home, the Pavilion 14 is a poor ambassador. The company simply made too many compromises when it decided to build its first Chromebook from a recycled PC chassis.

The HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook - which has a slightly higher price tag than most of its Google OS-running compatriots - manages to carry out the everyday computing tasks, but simply doesn't have anything in the specs and performance department that makes it a better option. Yes, the screen is bigger which might appeal to some who are intrigued by the prospect of cloud-based computing and want something more multimedia-friendly, but the extra screen estate does not mask the poor battery life, the uninspiring design and the fact that it is less portable than other Chromebooks.

The HP Pavilion Chromebook 14 isn't a revelation. It's a lot like an enlarged - and glammed-up thanks to its sparkly glossy plastic (make of that what you will) - version of the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook. The added screen size adds a few quid to the asking price, but pound for pound it's a similar experience overall. HP's done a good job by virtue of its Chromebook competitors, but place that into the wider context of the mobility space and it's just not quite enough to applaud.

The $329 HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook continues the trend of low-cost Chromebooks (with the exception of the pricey Chromebook Pixel) but offers a larger display than models by Acer or Samsung. The display and audio performance on the Pavilion were surprisingly good, even though we wished we could turn up the brightness a few more notches.

All told, we’re not sure why HP bothered to make its belated entrance into the Chromebook market with something as humdrum as this. The build quality is abject, the specification is unexceptional and a £50 premium over the (admittedly smaller) 11.6in Acer C7 leaves nothing for bargain hunters to chase after. It’s back to the drawing board – and don’t leave it as long next time.

HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook Review
Source: Slashgear English
The HP Pavilion 14 is the company’s first stab at a Chromebook, and instead of just mostly copying what Samsung and Acer have done with their Chromebook options, HP made a one-of-a-kind option, with the minimalistic performance and operating system mixed with the look and feel of a standard Windows laptop. However, this isn’t the notebook for everyone. Chrome OS is a very niche operating system, and it’s really only suited for casual users who surf the web, check email, stream media, etc. The Pavilion 14 isn’t the cheapest Chromebook option, but the larger 14-inch display is the real kicker here, and it’s perfect for those that want a lightweight OS in a slightly larger package.

69% Stuck halfway between Chromebook and laptop
Source: CNet English
Sitting down in front of the $329 HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook, one could be forgiven for thinking this is just another in a long line of slim plastic laptops with budget prices. The HP Pavilion Chromebook 14 advances the argument for Chrome as a low-cost mainstream computing environment, but the laptop's most noteworthy feature is a slightly bigger screen.

60% HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook Review: Laptop Experience For Under £250?
Source: Know Your Mobile English
From a hardware perspective, the HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook is a strong entry into the growing field of Chromebooks. It offers a nice number of ports, including HDMI, and has more than enough processing power and storage to meet a Chromebook user’s needs. The only thing that really kills this Chromebook is its battery life. A battery life of under four hours is something I expect from a laptop made in 2004, not 2014.

60% HP Pavilion 14-c002ea Chromebook review: budget laptop with a Google Chrome OS
Source: PC Advisor English
At £250 it's cheaper than most budget Windows laptops and if you're looking for a cheap laptop for basic web browsing, word processing and spreadsheets then the Pavilion Chromebook works quite well. A lack of 3G connectivity may help keep the price down, but the offline option for Google Docs means it doesn't turn into an entirely useless lump of plastic when you lose your internet connection. The battery life demands improvement.

I got eight hours and two minutes of battery life between charges with quite naturally a lot of the time spent online, but it also included playing music – the screen is blanked – while I was doing other things as the Altec Lansing speakers are quite good.

HP reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Intel HD Graphics (Sandy Bridge): Processor graphics card which is integrated in the Sandy Bridge Pentium and Celeron processors. Similar to the desktop HD Graphics 2000 and not related to the old Arrandale processor graphics with the same name.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics (Ivy Bridge): In the mobile Ivy Bridge Celeron and Pentium CPUs integrated processor graphics card. The HD Graphics is the slower, GT1 called, part with less execution units (EUs) and only one texture sampler - compared to the GT2 HD Graphics 4000.

Intel HD Graphics (Haswell): In the mobile Haswell Celeron and Pentium integrated processor graphics card. The HD Graphics is the slower, GT1 called, part with less execution units (EUs).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Celeron:

847:

Ultra Low Voltage Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. Due to the Celeron brand, many features of the Sandy Bridge core are deactivated.

2955U: Entry level ULV dual core processor with integrated graphics card called Intel HD Graphics and reduced features of the Haswell core (no Turbo Boost, AES, ...).

1.72 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

1.9 kg:


64.2%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
