HP Chrome is an excellent little computer!
5 Star Review   By Queen544 on HP - May 6, 2013   

In the past month I have purchased several tablets for my family. I did not feel that any of these were appropriate to meet my needs. I went to the HP store online to shop. There I found the Chrome. It is sleek and has the right feel. The battery lasts for at least 6 hours. I have a little gem that I am completely satisfied with. Oh, and by the way all desktops in my home are HP. I have been a very satisfied customer for a long time and I would recommend the HP Chrome to anyone!

1 Star Review   By UnhappyNeil on HP - May 5, 2013   

I thought this would be a really cool device. Unfortunately, within two days and directly after applying CRITICAL UPDATES, the Chromebook shutdown and was DEAD. Not to power up again. Brand new, technical support wanted to repair. I don't think so. 30 minutes on the phone trying to get to customer service. Finally got someone in the US that could help me. I returned it for a full refund.

Worst computer ever
1 Star Review   By valkgal on HP - May 2, 2013   

We recently purchased the HP Chromebook for my daughter's high school graduation. It powered on for about 10 minutes, then it died, and we haven't been able to get it started since. Tech sent us another cord, but the computer still won't power on. The product is unstable and unusable. It sounds great, but it really isn't.

You need to research before you buy.
1 Star Review   By Thrasher114 on HP - Apr 24, 2013   

I guess the first thing I feel obligated to point out about this product is that it is not what it is advertised. Anything running Chrome OS is not a fully functional laptop. IT WILL NOT do the tasks that you expect a laptop computer to do. You cannot install drivers for various devices. For example I have a Brother printer that the chromebook does not recognize. I can’t sync my itunes music. Photo editing is a farfetched dream on this device or anything requiring heavy computing. HP makes quality products, however this machine was a mistake. I feel like I paid 299 for a web browser. People claim this machine can serve a great word processing machine, however I say this might be true if your word processing is at the level of plain text.. In the end if you do buy this computer I would suggest trying to format and install Linux or something else. I am thoroughly disappointed.

Great value
5 Star Review   By JanineV on HP - Apr 24, 2013   

Good amount of hard drive space in addition to option for Cloud storage. The only issue for me is transitioning from my MAC touch pad to a pad with buttons. It is much lighter than my MAC, which is a big plus.

Awesome laptop
5 Star Review   By jag180abv on HP - Apr 17, 2013   

I was very sceptical when i purchased this laptop, and wasn't sure how i would like the chrome OS. I have been using it for over a month now and I am amazed at how much i like it. I to almost all my word processing and web browsing, it accomplishes these task with speed and ease. If you are looking for a fast, light, thin, and inexpensive laptop I would highly recommend this one.

5 Star Review   By hidiho on HP - Apr 13, 2013   

. I received my HP Chromebook today. I have been disgusted with Windows 7 operating system now for sometime. When my desktop was new it took about a minute to boot up, after constant Windows updates it now takes 8 to 10 minutes to boot up (plus the web locks up if it decides to update while I am in the middle of something even after turning off updates). I read reviews of Google Chrome OS and decided to try a Chromebook computer. I looked at Samsung and Acer laptops and with old eyes I wanted a larger screen so I chose the HP with a 14 inch screen. Set up could not have been simpler. I went thru the installation and set up in about a minute. I was using Google Chrome on my desktop so all the bookmarks and all else was transferred to the HP Chromebook without a hitch. It boots up in seconds and I am online in a matter of seconds. It also has Google Docs and Google Sheets (word processing and spreadsheet basic) that is very user much like Windows Office. If the performance continues,(I expect it will) I could not be more pleased. Windows needs to figure out a better OS or Google OS will take over completely as far as computer systems go. I am 100% pleased with this system as I did not want a tablet. If in the near future some one comes out with a desktop Chromebook I will buy one. For web surfing and emails, basic word processing and spreadsheet this can not be beat. I would recommend a Chromebook to anyone who wants the above mentioned usage in a computer system

We'd been holding off on purchasing a Chromebook because of the small screen sizes. When we saw this product we bought it immediately. We are very happy with it!

I like it!
4 Star Review   By rcd127 on HP - Mar 24, 2013   

I've had the pavillion chromebook for about 3 weeks now, and it's safe to say that it's definitely a keeper. I have done plenty of research on chromebooks in the past, but it wasn't until the Pavillion came out that I finally made the decision to get one. I had done all my research, so I knew of the benefits and potential drawbacks of what a chromebook is, so I knew what I was getting myself into. I feel like this chromebook meets 98% of my what I needed out of a laptop. * It's fast * Good screen * good/great performance * feels good I actually did my own comparison between this and the Samsung 3 chromebook, which is very popular. I can say for sure that I am very happy with my purchase of this over the Samsung. The screen AND performance on the pavillion easy strumps the Samsung. The Samsung definitely felt a step behind the pavillion, in performance, so I'm glad HP went with the Intel chips. Additionally, it feels like a solid laptop - not something made of cheap plastic, or what a lot of other journalists call "a secondary, or backup laptop". It just feels solid. Also worth noting are the speakers. They are up firing, so you won't get a muffled sound with speakers that are down firing into your lap or a table. Overall, I think the sound is very good. The only thing I think HP missed the mark on with this is the battery life. I think the spirit of a chromebook is supposed to be "light" and theoretically, shouldn't be a power hog. All it is, is a web browser basically, so I figured it should consume less battery than a rival OS. When it came down to it, although I liked the battery of the Samsung 3, its performance was too much of a show stopper. I also briefly considered the Acer, but I wanted a solid state drive, not a spinning one. Generally speaking, 4 hours is consistent with my experience at about ~45% brightness. I chose 45% because I wanted to conserve battery life, and because I think it's bright enough (with the key being enough) with the screen size, and generally, I think its a good/great screen.

Product has one unacceptable problem
4 Star Review   By Jerry6502 on HP - Mar 6, 2013   

This is a super computer if you want to check e-mail and do standard things. It does not support any application requireing JAVA. If you need JAVA then this is not for you. Linux appears to have a very serious problem in general lacking JAVA and no updates nor JAVA installs are in the future.

I complete awe...
5 Star Review   By Jameson287 on HP - Mar 4, 2013   

I am so happy with my choice in the HP Chromebook over the others that are out right now. This 14" version gives you the comfort of a laptop but the efficiency of the Chromebook. I am a small business owner who runs a Virtual Assistant business from home and I have all my information stored with Google already, it was an easy choice. I do still have my desktop that I have in the other room that I will have to use occasionally for printing until I get a Google Cloud Printer and then I will literally have no use for the PC. Although the unit is a little heavier that I had originally anticipated, it still has a nice overall feel. I put the battery in and was literally online and surfing the internet in under 20 seconds. I was in complete shock! The unit is a great value for the price and the added value of Google Apps built right in without any setup makes this a perfect solution for anyone who likes, loves, or uses Google. Also should note that the battery life on the unit is very acceptable runs at about 6-6.5 hours; which is perfect for me as I am never away from the outlet for that long. All in all I would highly recommend this unit to someone who wants/needs the Chromebook but also wants a laptop look and feel.

Chromebook exceeds expectations
5 Star Review   By Retap on HP - Mar 1, 2013   

The Chromebook fits your needs if most of your computer time is on the web and, like me, prefer a laptop to a tablet. It starts amazingly fast and is very fast on the web. One can read all of the posted reviews for details of the Chrome browser, cloud storage, etc. I think that the Chrome experience will continue to develop to answer most internet needs. One drawback is that Skype is not available for Chrome although Microsoft is reported to be developing video conferencing for outlook.com. I am pleased with the feel of the laptop as it is the same as HP Sleekbooks. As far as I am concerned, it is as good as a Mac Air at one third the price. The only negative is the touchpad which I find difficult to use, so I use a wireless mouse instead.

Battery life half of advertised
1 Star Review   By grazman on HP - Mar 1, 2013   

After a full charge, the battery lasts no more than 2.5 hours. Some nights it won't charge plugged in and off (light is on). As a result I cannot turn on unless it is plugged in and then it gives me wild guesses as to when the battery will be charged. At the hardware level it should turn off when yu tell it to turn off and not turn back on automatically when you plug the power cord it. It should not be "on" when you hit the power button (you should see it boot up when you hit the power button. Clearly the hardware/bios was not finished before the device was shipped. The online support and documentation for the device at HP's site is non-existent and point you to Windows drivers, etc. It's as if someone said, "let's make a chromebook (t HP) and sold the device and everything else was an afterthought. It's a poor excuse for a chromebook.

Good for the Right type of computer user
3 Star Review   By SelectiveBuyer on HP - Feb 28, 2013   

This computer is sleek, fast, attractive, lightweight with a nice screen and keyboard. Unfortunately, it has its limitations. It is designed to run apps on the internet such as all of Google's office, Google Drive , YouTube, internet based email and other online apps and web sites. It is not made to run Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, Excel or other Microsoft apps. We bought it for my 10 year old son who is particularly interested in playing games such as MineCraft. To play these games one needs an application on one's computer called Java. Google Chromebooks, we learned the hard way, do not allow one to download apps such as Java, so my son's hopes of playing such games on this computer were destroyed. As this computer could not fulfill his desires, we returned it the day after receiving it. It is a wonderful computer if you know its attributes and limitations. HP had a great and easy return policy.

The All-in-One Chromebook (Best of Both Worlds)
4 Star Review   By izick on HP - Feb 7, 2013   

In order to get things, you must give up others. Others may compare this to the Samsung Chromebook which has a Samsung low-powered processor which allows for over 6 hours of battery life vs. this machine that, like the Acer Chromebook, has an Intel Celeron processor, not ironically both of them are rated just over 4 hours of battery life. I believe this machine is having your cake and eating it too, although it may not have the exact icing you want on it. You get the solid state drive you'd be missing in the Acer C7, you get the Intel Celeron w/HD Graphics chip you'd be missing in the Samsung Chromebook, and you get the screen size you'd be missing in both those machines. If you can't live with 4.25 hours of battery life vs. 6 hours (only 1.75 more hours), then you should prepare to bring a charger (surprisingly included with every Chromebook), or prepare to accept a more lightweight processor and a smaller machine (Samsung Chromebook).

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on HP - Feb 7, 2013   

this is my Favorite overall laptop i have use many laptops that run linux OS X and windows but i have never used chrome OS (witch is a modified venison of linex) the interface is smooth i also like the fact that its the first chromebook that has a "proper" laptop size most other chromebooks have 11.5 inch screens now the reason i like this computer more than say a mac book pro is because it runs chrome OS witch i like because i just sign in with my google account and all my thins are there

Overall Good Chromebook with a few drawbacks
4 Star Review   By ptath2 on HP - Feb 6, 2013   

I ordered this chromebook for the larger screen the, HDMI, and I was concerned about battery life. the build quality for 330 dollar device is pretty good, the keyboard is excellent even if it does borrow from the PC world a bit. The processor is good enough to power chrome, I ran Netflix, Cordy, Basiton, Play Movies just fine on the device, it is supposed to weigh a little less than a pound more than my S7 ultrabook, but honestly holding both at the same time I can't tell, its still light. Its the first day but I'm on track to get better battery life than advertised, I have been unplugged for 2hrs and 40 mins, at i'm running at 70% capacity, fingers crossed. This not my first Chromebook, so I'm ok with what Chrome OS does and how it works pros -Chrome OS -full keyboard -Screen size -HDMI -Altec Lansing Speakers Cons Battery life for a Chromebook should be at least 5.5 hours (but I knew it going in) touchpad, isn't standard chromebook, and is not as responsive to gestures as I would like

HP misses the mark: thicker and poor battery life
2 Star Review   By Jack73 on HP - Feb 5, 2013   

The biggest advantage of a chromebook is the lightweight possibilities. The user must sacrifice some functionality and performance and the machine needs to make up for that with convenience. 4.5 hour battery life fails to do that (30% less than 6.5 hours on the current Samsung Chromebook) .83 inches is 20% thicker than the .69-inch Samsung Chromebook. Yes, the larger screen will consume more battery, however the larger form-factor (14') allows for a larger battery, but HP fails to take advantage. HP debuted at a higher price point for a larger screen, but no other improvements. HP has the advantage of acting second, but still fails to improve on Samsung's implementation.
