HP launched the Chromebook x360 in India a couple of months ago at a starting price of Rs 44,990. You can read our review of it here. While I was quite pleased to see HP launch a Chromebook in the country after a long gap, I was admittedly more kicked about the product it launched next. Just a few days after launching the Chromebook x360, HP launched the Chromebook 14 in India at a much more accessible price of Rs 23,990 (updated price: Rs 22,990). And that’s exactly the laptop on which I’m writing this review.
The HP Chromebook 14 can confidently handle light browsing, online document edits, and short video playbacks but not all at the same time. It delivers excellent battery life but is shy to multitask and offer higher speeds.
