Affordable and compact is a great way to describe the new HP Chromebook 14-AK041DX. For those looking for a solid alternative to the Windows and Apple laptops that have dominated the market for years will find that Chrome OS and its Chromebook laptops have proven to be a very worthy competitor. This particular model features a 14 inch display which still gives you plenty of viewing area while being much lighter than a traditional 15.6 inch device. Below we are going to review some of the benefits and downsides to this new release and see just how good it is.
Processor: Intel Celeron
Memory: 4 GB of RAM
Storage: 16 GB eMMC
Screen: 14 Inches
OS: Chrome OS
– At just 3.75 pounds this laptop is quite light and ideally suited to life on the road
– Along with being light it also features a long lasting battery which has the ability to give you up to 9 hours on a single charge
– Even a budget friendly device such as this features some newer technology like USB 3.0, HDMI and a built-in HD webcam for chatting with family and friends
– Includes 100 GB of cloud storage for free for the first 2 years you own the device giving you room for all your important files
– It is good they included that large amount of online storage since you are not going to be saving much locally on the machine. It comes with a very tiny 16 GB eMMC drive which will easily be filled by the average user
– Touchscreen is not one of the newer technologies that they have included in this device
– Google does a good job of providing great alternatives to all your favourite Windows and Apple programs but in some cases it is possible where a great alternative doesn’t exist
Those on a budget or those that just want a second low cost computer will love the affordability of the HP Chromebook 14-AK041DX plus its light design and long lasting battery will be great for those on the move.
