HP 14z Laptop Review
This is a 14-inch budget-class Windows laptop that comes with a low price tag. The components come encased in a high-quality plastic chassis and is available in a variety of colors like “Twilight Blue”, “Scarlet Red”, “Smoke Gray”, “Pale Gold”, “Snow White”, “Natural Silver”, and “Jet Black”. Since this is a budget laptop, you might not expect the HP 14z Laptop to come with features like AMD Radeon R2 graphics, but you really can customize it with such specs and still get it for well under $500.
It’s not surprising that a 14-inch notebook is so portable – you can take the 3.24 lb machine with you everywhere you go. To ensure that it stays powered all day, the 14z comes with a good 3-cell Li-Ion 41-Wh prismatic battery. It can keep you connected and entertained for up to 10 hours a day. With HP Fast Charge technology, the battery will power up in no time at all.
The notebook also LOOKS stylish and portable – no matter which color you choose – with its seamless bar hinge and brushed finish. There is a full-size / island-style keyboard that is easy to type on. The HD BrightView display (WLED backlit) looks attractive. You can easily view the screen whether you want to enjoy movies, look at photos, read text, and so forth. Just because it only has a 1366 x 768 resolution doesn’t mean the display isn’t attractive. Many users are surprised at how bright it is according to HP 14z Laptop reviews.
Seamlessly carry on working or enjoying multimedia even when the battery is low. The 45-W AC adapter will keep it going while it charges the battery up. Another good thing about this notebook is that it handles heat dissipation very efficiently, making it convenient for just about any task.
