Deal | HP 14 with Core i3-1125G4 CPU, 1080p IPS display, and backlit keyboard is a good deal for $379 USD
Costco is currently offering the basic 14-inch HP 14 laptop for $120 USD off the original launch price of $499. The deal is notable for its decent specifications relative to the very low asking price as most 14-inch laptops in the $300 range would typically come with slower CPUs and lower resolution displays. The Core i3-1125G4 may not sound like a very fast processor, but it will easily surpass any Celeron or Atom alternative.
Other than the CPU and 1080p IPS display, users would also be getting a backlit keyboard and a healthy number of ports for such a small and inexpensive model. Users can check out our two reviews on the AMD HP 14s and Intel HP 14s which use the same chassis as the HP 14 that's on sale.
The main disadvantage to the deal is the limited RAM and storage. Removing the bottom panel for upgrades is possible albeit difficult.
