What shoppers are saying
Backed by a 4.2-star rating and with its easy interface and quick setup, Amazon shoppers have been impressed by the HP Chromebook 14.0" HD laptop for everyday use.
“No frills, it is a neat little computer. Sign in with your Google info and poof, you are in. I was worried about what I could do with this but found I have everything...I can access my mail, all my photos etc, set bookmarks on the Chrome browser, pay bills etc,” noted one reviewer. “No complaints and for a few hundred compared to thousands for a new Mac, I love it.”
It’s also been praised as a kid-friendly option now that laptops are necessary for many students.
“I got it for Christmas for my 10 year old son and he loves it. He has not had any trouble navigating through the OS and he uses a Chromebook in school. He is rough with his stuff and so far it is holding up,” reads one review.
While this portable Chromebook may not be the most powerful computer around, it’s an ideal choice for basic tasks like paying bills, working with text documents, or staying in touch with loved ones online.
Since this sale won’t stick around forever, be sure to shop this Chromebook while it’s only $280.
