Design

At certain angles, the HP Chromebook 14’s white plastic lid gives off a slight glimmer that reminds me of Formica countertops. The rest of the chassis, including the deck, sides, bezel, and bottom, are a light teal, which gives the laptop a Crest toothpaste aesthetic. The deck also has a neat matrix pattern. The solid feel of the HP Chromebook 14 suggests a reliable build quality, and its soft keyboard deck felt comfortable against my wrists. If you’re looking for a more premium design, check out the Dell Chromebook 13, which has a soft-touch carbon fiber finish and a sturdy magnesium-alloy design.

Display

The HP Chromebook 14’s 1080p screen may be sharp, but it’s on the dim side. When I watched the Star Wars: Rogue One trailer on the HP Chromebook 14, multiple scenes looked dark and muddied. The blue lasers were rendered green and the orange of rebel pilot jumpsuits failed to pop. I could see the scratches and other fine details of Forrest Whitaker’s armor, but the screen reproduced the Imperial Star Destroyer in a yellow hue that made it look like an old prop.

Performance

Armed with a 1.8-GHz Intel Celeron N2940 CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 16GB eMMC drive, the HP Chromebook 14 provides enough power for multitasking. When I split my screen between a dozen tabs and a streaming YouTube video and opened Cut The Rope and Google Keep, the system stayed speed, with no lag as I typed in a Google Doc and moved from the tab to tab.
