1 out of 5 eggsLove Chromebooks, Hate this HP

Pros: Affordable. TMobile Data is a nice feature that we dont have on other Chrome Books, speedy response,

Cons: After 6 weeks, the battery stopped charging. The Charge indicator never went above 1%, and the computer would not work without the power adapter. Checked HP forums, and this is a common problem.

Other Thoughts: We are a Cloud consulting company, we sell hundreds of chromebooks a year, and have all the current Chromebooks for customer demos. HP has some work to do before they are ready for prime time. If, you decide to go with HP chromebooks, be certain to have several 'spares' to cover for unexpected downtime. Personally, I would NEVER deploy an HP Chromebook to a VIP or someone who is out of our regular support area.

5 out of 5 eggsWait, this isn't a PC?

Pros: I can't tell you how impressed I am with this chromebook. The LTE setup was a breeze (200MB for LIFE!). It does everything I need to do on a laptop. I should say that I loved using Google Drive well before I got this chromebook.
I expected it to be slow and under-powered- NOPE! It's fast and easy to use. I expect to use this as a back up computer when I didn't want to get the full laptop out, but this is easily replacing my very expensive laptop.
By the way, the battery consumption on this laptop is very good.

Cons: None really. I would have preferred this in black. You know what Henry Ford said...

Other Thoughts: If you like using Google Drive and Gmail, this is a perfect laptop.

5 out of 5 eggs6 Month Follow Up

Pros: I have now owned this machine for about 6 months. I still give it 5 eggs. Everything I said in my previous review (based off 2 weeks of ownership) remains true. Claiming all the extras was a snap.

The TMobile is an honest to goodness 4G, but the data limit is quite small (some posters seem confused - 4G is not 4GB of data) You do have the option of purchasing more data on demand (pre-paid style) in varying sized chunks.

The device works flawlessly when disconnected from the 'net (see note below in "other", though), so have no fear if you need to get work done out in a dead zone.

The biggest thing I still love about the Chromebook is how everything just works. Right out of the box. All updates happen silently in the background (save for the unobtrusive "restart to update" icon the tray), and the process is absolutely painless. Especially since a restart takes all of 10 seconds and what you were doing before is restored.

It goes a lot of places with me. Even though it's 14" it is so slim and lightweight it is no more obtrusive than a tablet. The battery remains a robust 6-8 hours of use. I recently got off a 5 hour trip and it was only at 60%.

It looks, feels and acts like a FAR more expensive machine than it is. My first impression was the entire chassis and build was good quality and I continue to feel that way. In fact, having splashed coffee on it (not something I care to risk twice...) Mine gets shoved into gym bags, seat pockets, balanced on dashboards, center consoles, tossed onto my bed/couch (lid sometimes opened, sometimes closed), carried around by the open lid, set on the floor, the cats sit on it/walk on the keyboard, sometimes is stored on its side or upside down. It does not have a very gentle life.

Cons: I continue to hate the arrow keys. They are so tiny as to be useless. Unless you have toddler-sized fingers you will fat-thumb them.

It is very difficult (impossible?) to mount your devices to it via USB. I started reading how to get my S4 to mount and I was like "bah. Not worth it." This is probably the biggest current con since I would expect this to just work, and I'm sure one day it will, but not today. This is a big "tsk tsk".

The screen is not anti-glare, which I really wish it was, because I drag my Chromebook everywhere and sometimes that's outside in bright daylight. It's not totally unreadable but I'd love an anti-glare outdoor-suitable screen option.

When I set mine down occasionally it makes a sound like a fan getting stuck/knocked off center. I close the lid or turn it off/on and it stops. It has happened 3 times and while I don't like it happening, I accept that it was a $350 laptop. I hesitated to put this in the con field since I personally can accept the limitations and build-quality compromises on such an inexpensive & slender device, and I also know I do not use my devices "gently" in any sense. But still, I guess it bears mentioning since I know that a device suddenly making some noise is a big deal for a lot of people.

Other Thoughts: Opening multiple "heavy" content tabs will cause there to be some lag- this is due in part to how Chrome handles memory and just the limitations of the processor. It's not that the machine is bad.

While the Chromebook remains highly functional within a net connection, it does become more limited. There is 1 thing to remember and 1 annoying peculiarity.

Thing to remember: if you are using websites (say, Pixlr) to do work, not having a net connection means you will not be doing whatever that was. This is slightly different behavior from a traditional laptop where you would probably have programs locally installed. Plan accordingly.

Annoying Peculiarity: The Google Drive files that are available to you offline are the ones you either create OR the ones already in your Drive. You cannot open an existing document from your local harddrive with Drive while offline. In my case I had downloaded a .csv file so I could work on it while on a plane (which ended up having no Wifi) and when I went to open it with Sheets, it was a no go because I was offline. I did have a local text editor (Text) that was able to open the file and I could get my work done, just with more squinting. There was no difficulty creating a new spreadsheet offline or accessing existing Drive files offline. It was just the inability to bring in an existing non Drive-file that was the problem. Now I know and just bring in all files I need.

I don't consider either of these cons because they are "the nature of the beast"- these machines are meant to work with an internet connection. Being without a connection means reduced function. It doesn't mean they're suddenly a paperweight.

I would buy another one of these machines in a heartbeat.

3 out of 5 eggsToo Many Cons for 2014 & Beyond....

Pros: It's a lower cost notebook with high build quality and Google cloud based. The free Tmobile 4g speed 200meg data is a great marketing concept that is an even better idea IF GIVEN more free data than the limited 200megs/month.

INTERESTINGLY, just starting from Saturday April12th 2014 to end of year you can get ! GIG of data FREE per month IF you are also a Tmobile customer on any phone plan & buy a qualifying notebook/tablet too. See Tmobile website for details... I'm not certain IF you can buy this notebook "here" and also get the free 1GIG of data/month too??? Worth checking out, cause MAYBE you can buy it here too for that same deal????

IF you love Google or hate Windows or want "the cloud", AND you don't care about my Cons & Other thoughts below, then this Google/HP deal is a great deal.

Cons: Considering 2014 and Beyond....

My next small sized notebook will have a touch screen and can be used as a tablet without the base keyboard (removable). It will weigh much less in this tablet mode. This HP/Google notebook fails at these two important criteria for me & can't touch screen or detach apart. Total design fail, imo.

Other Thoughts: I think hybrid tablet/notebooks are the wave of the future & Intel has some awesome CPUs in Notebook/tablet (Haswell) that use a CPU like the 4550U that would be ideal. Some specs....

The integrated HD Graphics 5000 offers 40 Execution Units (EUs) clocked at 200 - 1100 MHz with Turbo Boost, making it significantly faster than the HD Graphics 4000. As a result, the HD 5000 competes with dedicated lower mid-range graphics cards.

The i7-4550U is rated at a TDP of 15 W including the graphics card, memory controller, VRMs and the integrated chipset. Therefore, the CPU is suited for small ultrabooks 11-inches or greater.

An Intel 4550u CPU in a tablet/notebook hybrid look like the ideal combo for 2014... just need to find it. :D

5 out of 5 eggsAbout 95% Good

Pros: About 95% good buy

Cons: T-Mobile data took 5 calls to find some one to turn on Chromebook SIM chip and FREE data its only for 500KB not 4GB as HP clams.

Other Thoughts: Save your money up and buy a real good Laptop Computer.

3 out of 5 eggsNot For Upgrading

Pros: It's thin, it has a nice design, light, and quiet. The display is pretty nice as well. If you are interested in only running Chrome OS but want a nice sized monitor this is a definite forerunner for your purchase dollars.

Cons: A search button was more important in their design than Caps Lock, which is weird but whatever. The lack of a Command/Windows key to open the apps directory is also a misfire for me. As noted in other reviews the vertical viewing angles are minimal, arrow keys and touchpad take some getting used to using.

My biggest concern is upgrading, which is why I'm returning the item. The HP Chromebook 14 has a M.2 NGFF SSD, and the 4 gb of RAM is soldered. I bought this book specifically to upgrade the RAM and SSD with better components I already own, only to find out on arrival I could not.

Newegg customer service did well and extended me a refund considering the circumstances.

Other Thoughts: Good for a Chromebook, but little else and unable to upgrade easily. Not a premier choice for a primary machine.

For the money I would rather purchase a budget laptop to upgrade and run a full function OS.

5 out of 5 eggsBest of the Chrombooks

Pros: HP one of the best Chrombooks out today.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Only two bad things about this Order was T Mobile, they have no record of my Zip Code in a City of 30,000 so after 5 Telephone calls I found some one that can Activate the 4G mobile Internet.
The other bad thing was the Shipping Box Newegg needs to get there act together on packaging.
Service was fast they are using Ontrac 2 days.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Surprisingly zippy and quick. Does not feel clunky at all. Extremely nimble. I'm coming from a Linux laptop, so I would guess if you're coming from a clunky low/middle end Windows machine you'll be floored.

Speakers are surprisingly good quality. I was expecting tinny and cheap. They sound quite good.

Screen quality is very good. Very crisp and bright. I wish the max brightness would go a little higher and there was a wee bit more contrast (dark colors sometimes look a bit washed out) but that's nitpicking.

Battery life is amazing. It's as good as all the other reviews say. Believe the hype.

4G card came pre-installed and ready to go.

Setup took all of 3 minutes.

And here is something I noticed: it sits perfectly on your lap. Every other laptop I've ever used has felt like it was going to slide off my lap, or wiggle, or tilt ect. You know the feeling: you're sitting and typing and you're half-distracted by keeping your laptop steady. Or maybe you just want to recline and wander the 'net and you have to keep fighting with the stupid laptop to keep it from sliding everywhere as you read. This one? Doesn't do any of that.

When I realized that I could in fact sit and type and it required no effort to actually keep it balanced, I fell in love. I can love it for that reason alone and no other.

And if you're into "attractive" and want your devices to be "attractive", let me assure you, this one ticks that box too. I've never really cared and all my laptops before this one have been functional-ugly. This one is downright adorable.

Cons: I really have to struggle to say anything bad about this machine. I am, afterall, in love with it for its perfectly balanced chassis and battery life that will last an entire transcontinental flight. But nothing is perfect.

Trackpad click is very heavy and requires effort. However, you don't need to use it since you can do all the click-y things with the touchpad.

If you plug in a USB mouse even with the tracking speed as high as possible it still feels slow. If you like a super quick mouse like me, you'll find it too annoying to use.

Instead of the keys being spaced out as far as they are, I'd prefer if they were a little bit bigger. The keyboard does take a little getting used to. The arrow buttons especially seem stupidly small.

Other Thoughts: Even though I love this machine, after having used it and experienced ChromeOS, I can strongly say it is not for everyone. I would not buy a Chromebook if it was my ONLY machine, as there are things it can't do and tasks it is not suitable for. This Chromebook allows me to do 95% of the things I want to do and 100% of the things I NEED to do. If this was going to be my only device, I would have purchased a traditional laptop for $100 more.

Anyone considering a Chromebook really has to look at what they need/want their computer to do, and to carefully review if a Chromebook can do those things, and in what manner. In some cases there is an alternative application you might be able to use, in others you are just plain stuck and will have to go without. I think a lot of the bad press for ChromeOS comes from usage situations where it wasn't the appropriate choice (or from 2 years ago when the OS was really in its infancy)

This Chromebook comes with 4GB of RAM, which is a huge improvement over 2GB (buy it), and an actual computer chip, and not an ARM chip. So it's very important when shopping for a Chromebook to understand if you're getting an actual computer chip or a phone chip (and basically getting a big tablet with a keyboard)

I will also confess that what sealed the deal for me with buying this laptop over a traditional was the extras. The 2 years of Drive space was something I wanted/will use, and the 4G, while very limited at 200MB a month, is enough for me. It means I can cancel the hotspot on my phone. So for me these 2 things actually represent savings to me, which weighed against the cost of the device, made it a no-brainer.

5 out of 5 eggsIncorrect name! Great Chromebook!

Pros: The name of this item is WRONG on Newegg! This is NOT the PAVILION 14, it is the HP Chromebook 14. They are completely different!

This chromebook has the new haswell processor!
If you can spare the extra $50-60 this is definitely worth getting over the 2gb ram model! Even if you don't plan on using the Tmobile 4g*

The battery life of this this is amazing! I have been getting 8-9 hours with heavy use, downloading Crouton/Chrubuntu, listening to music while browsing the web, watching netflix/youtube. The build quality and keyboard are amazing! The trackpad takes some getting used to though


* : The 4g is HSPA+, not LTE, which I have been getting 30mb down 10mb up

Cons: Trackpad, once you get used to it it's great though

Price, since for $350 you can get a normal laptop. But then again you wont get 8+ hours of battery life, or built in 4g!

4 out of 5 eggsClose to being the ultimate Chromebook

Pros: Screen size
Great build quality that is typical of HP's latest Ultrabook offerings
Soft touch material
Well spaced keys
Nice Mac-book-like touchpad with gesture support
Battery life
Speed
General Aesthetics
Built in Cell radio

Cons: Weight
Keyboard not backlit
200MB free monthly data is simply not enough

Other Thoughts: This is my third Chromebook now. I had the original Samsung Series 5, then the 550, and not this one. This is the best by far in a few ways:

1) It is the first that actually looks like a higher quality device
2) The 14" screen is so nice. 2" does make a big difference
3) Finally, with the Haswell chip, we have the speed of the 550 with the battery life of the original Series 5

Very happy thus far!
