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.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.72 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
