Ocean turquoise HP 14-x030nr is the new version 14 inch Chromebook- one of latest laptops with Chrome operating system by HP. It is quite a portable one with its lightweight and slim chassis and up to 8 hours battery life and is suitable for anyone that uses the computer mainly for internet and want a machine that boots up super quick- to go online fast. Chrome OS is simple to use, safe with built-in security features and you do not need to do upgrade anything manually as it will constantly upgrade itself in the background.

HP Chromebook 14 has the fast and efficient January 2014 release quad core NVIDIA A4 Tegra K1 processor at up to 2.3 GHz speed, 2.0 GB DDR3L SDRAM memory at 1600MHz- can not be upgraded but quite adequate for a Chromebook and the CPU for multitasking power, 16 GB eMMC Solid-State Drive plus 100GB free Cloud based storage for 2 years and Google Chrome operating system. It powers on super fast as you will not be loading heavy software. It only has 16GB of storage but being an SSD, helps with snappier performance- at least with faster boot-ups and your main storage will be on Cloud anyway and you can have access to your data whenever and wherever there is internet connection.

14 inch diagonal AntiGlare HD WLED-backlit display with 1366x768 pixels maximum screen resolution offers great colours and decent image quality overall, although not like a Full HD screen. It has the digitally tuned speakers for satisfactory sound quality- clear audio. The front-facing HP TrueVision HD Webcam with built-in digital microphone is good for chatting with people easily or taking still photos. Graphics card is the NVIDIA Kepler graphics with 192 NVIDIA CUDA cores and helps with the overall picture quality and fast performance in even the most demanding games and is capable of handling any multimedia tasks that relate to Chrome OS with no dramas. There is an HDMI output and you can choose to do your thing- browse the net or watch videos on your larger screen HDTV.

HP Imprint finish with the dot design in snow white with ocean turquoise cover HP Chromebook weighs 3.4 pounds with measurements of 9.45 x 13.54 x 0.70 inches- very slim and lightweight. The 3-cell 37 Wh Li-ion polymer battery offers up to 8 hour battery life so you can be out and about all day long without needing to recharge the battery. It has a full keyboard with island style keys, including internet shortcut keys, no 10-key numpad but a very responsive touchpad for overall easy navigation and typing experience. It has no DVD drive and no Ethernet for wired internet access but the new technology 802.11ac wireless (so you will need a proper wireless internet connection to use this system properly), Bluetooth 4.0, 1 x USB 3.0 port, 2 x USB 2.0 ports, 1 x Audio-out port, a Headphone/microphone combo, 1 x microSD media card reader and an HDMI port.

Conclusion: HP Chromebook 14-x030nr J9M93UA#ABA is a great little Chromebook with a larger than normal 14 inch display, nice modern design, 2014 release fast, powerful and energy efficient NVIDIA Tegra K1 fanless processor, user-friendly Google Chrome Operating System, long battery life- up to 8 hours, portability- slim and lightweight, 802.11ac wireless that you’ll find on expensive Apple Mac computers rather than the standard 802.11bgn and a flash storage rather than regular hard drive. However it doesn’t have a BluRay or DVD Drive (but so you really need one and you can always connect a low cost external drive) and no Ethernet- wired internet connection. Like other Chrome systems, it is designed mainly for simple and safe internet browsing or running apps mainly online (and offline too lately). Google offers so many free and paid apps for your convenience, so you will not have MS Word or Excel or Powerpoint but Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Slides. It is offered with the standard 1 year limited hardware warranty along with toll-free customer support. If you don’t want to spend a lot and will use the computer mainly for internet and basic tasks and want something light and fast with long battery life, this is a good machine to consider.
