HP is one of the most popular PC manufacturers offering many different options. They just introduced four new 14-inch Chromebooks with multiple configurations to their already wide selection. In this article, we will look at the latest HP Chromebook 14 series including all its variants as well as their expected price in Nepal.

HP Chromebook 14 Series Overview

The HP Chromebook 14 Series includes three members i.e. HP Chromebook Plus x360, HP Chromebook Plus, HP Chromebook x360, and HP Chromebook. The Plus variant comes with a comparatively powerful chipset compared to the others.

Now, moving on to the details of the HP Chromebook 14 Series, starting with the…

Design and Display

As the name suggests, the HP Chromebook Plus x360 and the HP Chromebook x360 are a convertible laptop featuring a fully rotatable design. On the other hand, the HP Chromebook Plus and the base HP Chromebook are standard laptops with a regular range of motion. All these models come in a monotone finish with a large company logo slapped onto the lid, while a tiny series branding accompanies on the top corner.

Moving on to the display, you get a 14-inch panel with an anti-glare finish across the board. The two convertible options unsurprisingly come with touchscreen support while the regular variants miss out on it. Similarly, the Plus model comes with a higher FHD resolution while the regular models are stuck with HD only.


Moving on to the performance side of things, the HP Chromebook 14 series comes with low-powered processors.

Starting with the HP Chromebook x360 and the base Chromebook, you get two Intel processor options. Those are either Intel N100 or Intel N200. Both these processors come with four cores, four threads, and a 6MB L3 cache. However, the former clocks in at a maximum of 3.40 GHz, while the latter reaches up to 3.70 GHz. Additionally, you get either a 4GB or 8GB of memory alongside a 64GB or 128GB storage option.

In the meantime, the Plus variants pack the Intel Core i3-N305 processor that doubles the cores and thread count, while sticking with the same cache size. It also pushes the clock speed to 3.80 GHz. Similarly, in the storage department, you get a sole 8GB LPDDR5 RAM while for storage you get a higher 128GB or 256GB of UFS storage. Moreover, all these laptops boot on ChromeOS.

Battery and the rest

In the tank, you get a 47Wh battery with 45W charging support. These two variants deviate in the webcam department as well. Here, the base variants come with a 720p camera while the Plus versions have 1080p shooters.

HP Chromebook Features

Meanwhile, the port options are minimal on the HP Chromebook 14 series. This includes one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C, one USB 3.0 Type-A, and one 3.5mm headphone jack on the base variants. On the other hand, the Plus variants get an extra USB Type-C port. Lastly, you get WiFi 6 and Bluetooth v5.3 support on all these laptops for wireless connectivity.
