HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook
perhaps the Chromebook Pixel’s $1,300 price tag is a bit hard to accept for a ‘bare’ minimal laptop. so if you can do without fancy aluminum alloy chassis and a pretty uber high resolution display, but still want to speediness provided by Chrome OS, then you might want to give the HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook a thought. costing just $329.99, what this HP variant of the Chromebook has to offer is basically the same as what other makers like Acer, Samsung have: the ‘lightweight’ Chrome OS that requires you to live most of your laptop computing life in the cloud. standing from the rest of its cohort is its generous display: a 14″ BrightView LED-backlit display with a 1,366 x 768 resolution. apart from that, the rest of its hard specs are pretty much the same, which includes a humble dual-core Intel Celeron processor, 16GB SSD, a HD camera, USB 2.0 ports, a card reader, Bluetooth 3.0, Ethernet port and built-in dual-band WiFi. of course, with the purchase, you will also be offered with 100GB Google Drive Cloud Storage, which will be valid for two years from date of redemption. seriously, only cloud citizens need apply, or perhaps as second computer. then again, most of us have been living in the cloud unknowingly all this while, so i guess it won’t make such a huge difference after all. just maybe.
