Unlike the XE303C12-A01US Chromebook from Samsung that did not have a standard keyboard (full-size QWERTY keyboard), the Pavilion 14-c015dx laptop comes with a Full-size island-style keyboard that designed for Google’s Chrome OS and have a Touchpad with multi-touch gestures supports, offers faster, comfortable and bigger space keys than the Samsung Chromebook.

Yeah, HP Pavilion 14-c015dx Chromebook laptop is not the most powerful 14 inch laptop for daily use, but if the portability and price are the big concern, we think its a great laptop and worth for your money. If you are not familiar with Chrome OS and looking for 14 inch Windows budget friendly laptop that also have a similar weight and cheaper price, we think you should take a look at Asus X401U-BE20602Z 14 inch laptop that weighing only at 4.1 lbs and priced only at $289.99 with free shipping in US.
