HP 14-fq1021nr Review And Specification

HP 14-fq1021nr Review And Specification

 For years, users on a budget who don't need or can't afford the more expensive Envy and Spectre lines have turned to HP's Pavilion series of laptops. Take the HP 14-fq1021nr, for example. It has no association with any brand whatsoever and only goes by the generic family name "HP 14 Laptop," but it provides performance and style at reasonable costs.

With 8GB RAM and a 256GB solid-state drive, the 14-fq1021nr is an unmistakably intermediate model but is priced in the middle of budget laptops, giving it an acceptable Windows introduction if you don't want to explore a Chromebook.

Design & Build

HP 14-fq1021nr Design

The HP 14 looks like a nice laptop. Despite the mid-range price, it has considerable beauty because to the frosted silver chassis. It is one of those business-ready laptops without the intimidating bulk of certain other models, like the (great) Dell Inspiron 3505.

The HP 14 looks the part if you're seeking for a device that can be used for both personal and professional purposes.

More importantly, it's transportable. The Acer Aspire 5 weighs 3.97 lbs, compared to the 3.77 lbs of the HP 14-fq1021nr, however there are lighter laptops available in this price range. Additionally, it is remarkably small. To class or a conference room for a call, you can carry it with one hand. Similar to how you can easily balance it on your lap while riding the train to work.

The HP 14 laptop has a space-saving keyboard without a number pad, like other 14-inch computers, however one is available on the bigger HP Pavilion 15 notebooks. Thanks to a thin profile that keeps the laptop at 0.7 inches when closed, this minimizes the overall footprint on your desk (or lap).

The port selection is typical but adequate to support the majority, if not all, of your peripherals. A USB-C port, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 1.4b, a headphone/microphone combo jack, and an SD card reader are all included here. Wireless communication is provided by Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6.

Screen & Speakers

A 14-inch Full-HD (1920 x 1080) IPS anti-glare display is provided by the HP 14-fq1021nr. The dull black bezels make it appear plastic, although they aren't chunky. A 720p webcam with twin array mics is located at the top.

The screen provides good image quality, and you gain from the IPS display type's customary wide viewing angles. While HP advertises 250 nits on the package, its maximum brightness is 238 nits. This isn't necessarily terrible. In order to save money, the majority of low-cost laptops only have a maximum brightness of 200 nits, which results in awful picture quality.

Even so, the HP 14 laptop isn't boring, but if you want to work outside, you'll need more. You won't experience any problems working indoors or after work. The laptop's front-facing dual speakers are pleasantly clean and sharp, although they fall short of HP notebooks with B&O speakers in terms of sound quality.

Specs & Performance

The HP 15 laptop is another great option for professionals working from home or an economical alternative laptop for hotdesking because the company guarantees slick daily performance.

The HP 14-fq1021nr, the review unit, is equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5 5500U CPU clocked at 2.1GHz (6 cores, 12 threads), 8GB of memory (on one slot), a 256GB SSD, and AMD Radeon graphics. No matter what you throw at it, this silent workhorse will perform as specified and won't overheat.

The HP 14 is more than capable of handling work-related tasks like word processing, spreadsheet creation, email, and web surfing while playing Spotify in the background. GIMP allows for some simple alterations like layering photos, cropping, and filling backgrounds, so you may also use it for minor photo editing.

On the other hand, you can still play simple games with the AMD Radeon graphics card, but anything that needs a specialized graphics card will run agonizingly slowly. Check out the Lenovo Ideapad Gaming 3, which has a special Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card for casual gamers, for about the same price.

A Battery's Life

HP advertises a battery life of up to 9 hours on the 14-fq1021nr, but in practice, you'll only get about 7 hours and 48 minutes, which includes continuous movie playback and web browsing at 150-nits brightness. Not bad, although cheaper laptops have been known to last longer, such as the Acer Aspire 5 A515-46-R14K, which costs hundreds less but only lasts 10 hours on a single charge.
