Chromebooks are a great option for those who need something simple and yet efficient and capable when it comes to web browsing and light computing. Thanks to the power of Chrome OS and a library of web apps, you get things like docs, sheets, and slides for Microsoft Office-like tasks, and you're always signed into your Google account so you can check your Gmail, Hangouts, and Google+ as well as a number of other Google-related services on the fly.
The HP Chromebook 14 comes equipped with a 14-inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768, and it weighs about 4.19 lbs. so it's light enough to carry around without it feeling heavy and bulky. It's powered by an Intel Celeron 2955U 1.4GHz processor and it comes with a 16GB internal solid state drive, accompanied by 4GB of RAM for memory. It can also expand on the 16GB of SSD space through the use of the SD reader. It comes with two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 port, an HDMI port, and a 3.5mm audio port. It supports Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi, features an HD webcam, and it's capable of hooking up to LTE networks with a plan from a compatible GSM carrier. Normally these run for about $229.99, but you can currently pick it up for $189.99 on sale.
