HP Chromebook 14 14-ak010nr Review
The HP Chromebook 14 is one of the best values for a large Chromebook. It is recommended to get the 4GB RAM model because it also comes with a 1080p IPS display that is worlds better then most Chromebook’s TN displays. This can handle any website you throw at it as well as several tabs without slowing down (referring to the the 4gb ram model) Built quality is great to, good feeling keyboard, plenty light and thin as well, and whisper silent because there is no fan inside. You won’t regret this Chromebook whether it is your first time in ChromeOS or one of many Chromebooks.
HP Chromebook 14 Versus HP Chromebook 11
Having owned two other Chromebooks already, from the start, it was a very familiar feeling. HP’s 14 is not ‘exactly like’ Samsung’s and this big HP is quite different from HP’s Chromebook 11 but it’s easily recognizable as a Chromebook.
Here are some changes:
˕ DISPLAY: HP 11’s colors are sharper and brighter and you can view the screen from almost any angle left/right or up/down. HP 14’s is not as bright and the larger size doesn’t come with better resolution.
˕ KEYBOARD. It’s a draw. I like both keyboards as they have a good layout and nice travel. As a touch typist I am comfortable with both.
˕ DESIGN: HP 11’s is more stylish design but they are both Okay as far as I can tell. HP 11 is nicer though.
˕ PORTS: This is where the HP 14 wins big time. It comes with USB 3.0 ports vs. HP 11’s USB 2.0 and full HDMI.
˕ POWER: It’s not too obvious but yes, the HP 14 is sometimes faster refreshing screens. Videos play equally smoothly on both.
˕ SIZE AND WEIGHT: HP 14 is a lot heavier so if you travel and size and weight matters then HP 11 is the right choice. If your Chromebook is mostly homebound and most of your computing and media playing takes place in a room shielded from direct or indirect sunlight then the HP 14 gives you the bigger display advantage.
Overall I like HPs larger Chromebook. It has better ports options than the HP 11, it’s faster and you get a bigger screen on a body that’s not as light and pretty.
