    Outperforms Its Modest Price

    HP aimed for the middle with this laptop: its 14 inch screen is mid-size, the 128gb SSD is mid-size among solid state drives, and its Intel i3 processor is mid-performance in the Intel lineup. The results are terrific. The solid state drive enables it to boot up rapidly. I can read my email 30 seconds after hitting the power button. Daily tasks, such as checking my email and calendar, drafting and editing a document, or reading news headlines are carried out smoothly. The keyboard has a firm, crisp feel. The screen is a good size for office tasks, such as editing documents, Netflix movies look good (only good...not great) with colors that are a bit subdued. The sound from the two top mounted speakers can get very loud and the HP audio app lets you add bass or boost the clarity of dialogue in movies. It is the best sound I've heard from a laptop. It is compact and very light weight, making it easy to carry with you. It can be upgraded with up to 16gb of high speed memory if you want to use it for challenging work such as Photoshop. The built-in graphics chip is NOT adequate for high demand gaming. No laptop in this price range is useful for high speed gaming. If you want a mid-size, mid-price laptop that will carry out your routine work quickly and smoothly, this is a superb choice. It costs only about $100 more than the cheapest 14 inch laptops, yet its performance is FAR superior.

    After purchasing 2 other laptops before this, I decided to keep this one. The bootup on this laptop is very quick (less than 20 seconds). The applications load and work very quickly. The display resolution is very clear and attractive when working online or watching videos. The 14" screen is very easy to carry in a business bag. I love this laptop. Only drawback is the small storage, 128 Gb. But it can be addressed with using a bigger external storage. For $319, it's a very good value. On a budget, buy this laptop. You'll be happy.

    Was looking for a laptop that could help me with work on excel, web browse, and use for my car tuning. Screens got a nice gloss so its a bit reflective out doors. . but screen and resolution looks great indoors. Battery life is great, no cd drive which is great for me since I want something light weight. Fan is super quiet, I added more ram so it really does everything that I needed for very well. It looks modern and not an older feel. Everythings been softer around the edges.

    Much better than I expected

    I got this on sale today (around $350) and I've been pleasantly surprised with it. It's thicker than I expected, but much lighter as well. It certainly has that "cheap" low end plastic laptop design, but there are things that help raise it above others like the slim bezels on the side of the display and a keyboard and trackpad combo that work quite well. After removing programs I didn't need I had almost 100 GB of storage available. The display, while having the standard low end resolution commonly found in cheaper laptops, didn't look as bad as I expected and didn't have too bad of a washed out feel you usually see. I've been surprised with how nicely the machine runs given the specs it has, but that's most likely due to running Windows 10 S. I've no need for full Windows on this device and have been able to get by with Edge and apps from the Windows Store, but I'd still recommend a PC with 8 GB of RAM if you want to multitask and use full Windows. 4 GB is cutting it close. The only time I noticed any terrible slowdown/lag was when playing videos and attempting to type documents. If you're expecting to watch Netflix or YouTube while doing other things, you'll be pushing this machine to its limits. This just isn't a good multitasking machine, but if you need something for basic everyday general use, then it'sn't too bad for the $350 sale price as long as you'ren't expecting much. I am, however, returning the laptop since I also purchased the HP 14 Chromebook (on sale for $450) that will do the exact same things I purchased this laptop for. I figured I could save $100 and possibly get by using this PC, but the extra $100 for the Chromebook gets me a MUCH faster machine with a backlit keyboard, 1080p display, two USB-C ports, and an overall more premium device. I feel the extra $100 is worth it if you compare ChromeOS to Windows 10 S since I don't recommend this machine use full Windows Home.

    The HP - 14" Laptop is a great value. My former computer had a problem with some of the keys so I bought a remote keyboard but that also ended up with problems. I needed something right away and was not looking to spend a lot of money. This was a great choice. I have had no problems, the keyboard is easy to use and I can easily see without my glasses. A larger screen would be nice but the 14" works fine. The speed is good and storage is more than enough. I recommend to anyone looking to buy an excellent computer at a value price!
