Looking for a Chromebook this holiday season? I recently received an HP Chromebook 14, actually I received not ONE but TWO. ONE for me – and another for a lucky reader! More on our HP Chromebook giveaway soon. Until then, let me tell you all about this laptop.
HP Chromebook 14
My daughter uses a Chromebook for school every day, so I was familiar with Chrome OS how it worked. While I’ve used her’s a few time (she has a Samsung Chromebook), I always felt it was too small for my liking (11 inches) and not as well built as a standard Windows laptop or Macbook. The HP Chromebook 14 is sturdy (yes, a toddler has accidentally dropped it — already), and it only weighs in at 4.6 lbs!
My Favorite Features
Free T-Mobile Service for 2 Years
2 years of free mobile Internet service up to 200MB of 4G data per month with no annual contract.
Okay, I am going to start with my absolute favorite feature of the HP Chromebook 14 – 24 months of FREE internet on the Chromebook from T-Mobile. That’s right, with the built in card, you can access the internet anywhere with this thing without needing a hotspot or wi-fi connection! I’m a mom-on-the-go and internet everywhere so I can work anywhere is a must and with it built-in and free – that makes me happy.
100 Gigs of Google Drive Space
100GB of Google Drive storage: Store and access your files and content anywhere with 100GB of Google Drive storage, free for 2 years.
With 100 gigs of Google Drive space, you will have plenty of room to store your files.
Free GoGo Inflight Internet
12 free sessions of GoGo® Inflight Internet
Do you travel often? This Chromebook gives you 12 free sessions of GoGo® Inflight Internet sesssions! T
With a 14 inch screen, I have ample viewing room. I typically work on a 13 inch screen and the extra inch makes a huge difference.
Instant Start Up
There’s no power button, just open the cover and it starts!
The ultra-slim design makes this laptop easy to transport. I can slide it right into my work bag, with ample room for my other stuff.
