Amazon has discounted the HP Chromebook 14, dropping it down to just $229. That is good for $70 off of its regular price, and makes it a really good deal for those that are looking to pick up a Chromebook before going back to school next month.
The HP Chromebook 14 is perfect for back to school. Because it is inexpensive, it is also lightweight and has some pretty good battery life. The battery life here is rated at over 10 hours, which means that you can take it with you to all of your classes and never worry about it dying. Or needing to bring your charger. It's also very lightweight at around two pounds.
This Chromebook from HP is also one of the newer ones from the company. There's a 14-inch touchscreen display here, it's not a super high-resolution display at 1366×768. But at this price, you don't really expect it to be.
Inside, the HP Chromebook 14 is powered by the AMD Dual-Core A4-9120 chipset, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. This is a dual-core chipset, but that is still plenty powerful for most people on a Chromebook. Remember that Chromebooks don't run a full OS like Windows or MacOS. Instead it is essentially just a browser. So it doesn't need an Intel Core i7 and 16GB of RAM to run smoothly.
Speaking of Chrome OS, it can seem pretty limiting. So depending on what you're studying in school, it may not be the best option. But it will be great for taking notes, sending some emails, writing papers and so forth. And at $229, it's great for being just a note-taking device.
