The HP Chromebook x360 14a is a tempting choice for a 2-in-1 laptop on the cheap, betrayed mainly by its dim display and poor touchpad. Still, it doesn't quite excel as either a tablet or a laptop. If you're looking for a more capable but still reasonably priced convertible, you might be better off with our top pick in this category, Acer's Chromebook Spin 514. Still, the HP is good enough to handle the needs of students and the demands of casual internet users on tight budgets.

All told, the HP Chromebook x360 is a well put together package on the outside that just leaves a bitter taste on the inside. For the price, it’s starting to edge into the territory of better machines. A small bump in your budget can land you a Windows 10 laptops such as the Acer Aspire 5 A515-46-R14K – with AMD Ryzen 3, 128GB SSD, a Full HD screen and a backlit keyboard. On the other hand, if a 2-in-1 convertible is a must, and you don’t mind Chrome OS, the same budget can get you the Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5, with a 10th Gen Intel Core i3 CPU, a Full HD resolution screen and weighs much less than the Chromebook x360 14a. But if all you’re buying for is basic productivity and much on battery life, sleek design and portability, then the HP Chromebook x360 14a (14a-ca0022nr) is a good Chrome OS convertible that offers substantial savings over a horde of corporate and deluxe model. It’s well worth considering.
