HP 14” Chromebook Laptop (Manufacturer Refurbished)
Less than an inch thick and sporting a streamlined operating system, this laptop excels at fast, mobile computing. Whatever you use it for, it presents images in lifelike detail and text in crisp clarity that’s easy to read thanks to its sharper-than-HD screen resolution.
Fast, Internet-Based OS
Most of what we do now on our computers—browsing, streaming, emailing—is done online. This laptop’s Chrome OS takes advantage of that by making its entire computing experience internet-based. Docs and files are saved in the cloud, so they can be accessed any time on any device, and traditional hardware and startup processes are scrapped to get you online the moment you fold open the laptop’s screen.
Video Chat with Anyone, Anywhere
A built-in webcam can make it feel like people miles away are in the room with you, helping you connect more clearly than with a phone call or email. Collaborate with colleagues in other offices, listen as your niece or nephew rapturously explains their finger painting, or laugh every time your friend’s cat walks across their keyboard.
Even though it’s slimmed down on some traditional laptop hardware, this Chromebook still keeps apps and programs moving swiftly thanks to a 2.16GHz dual-core processor.

When iconic company HP was born in 1939, it was not in a gleaming laboratory or during a late-night study session at a prestigious university. It was in a 12’x18’ garage that contained only a workbench and a used drill press. University friends Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard sold audio equipment to Disney (which used them during Fantasia production) and became HP soon after. Their humble garage is now marked with a plaque bearing the title “Birthplace of Silicon Valley.”
HP’s innovations laid the groundwork for the Valley’s surge in technological advances. Between the creation of the first handheld computer, which connected to printers and cassette drives, and development of speedier 64-bit processing technology currently used by brands like Apple and Microsoft, HP cemented itself as an architect of current tech trends like the tablet and smartphone. It’s a community-conscious company, too; HP has donated to charity since 1940 and offers free recycling for all electronics, regardless of brand, at Staples.
