HP 14-fq1025nr Review And Specification

The HP 14-fq1025nr resembles the HP 14-fq1021nr from the previous year in every way except for the fact that it now ships with Windows 11 Home pre-installed rather than its predecessor's Windows 10 Home, which can still be updated to the most recent OS. As a result, both variants are budget laptops with AMD Ryzen 5 5500U processor, 8 GB RAM, and a 256 GB solid-state drive, which is roughly the memory and storage we consider today's normal. If you don't want to explore a Chromebook, this device makes a good Windows 11 introduction.

Like its predecessor, the HP 14 laptop has a lot going for it. You will undoubtedly discover significant value whether purchasing for college or the workplace thanks to its reasonable price, powerful hardware when compared to competitors in this category, and a clean look. The wonderful Lenovo Flex 5 Laptop continues to be our Editors' Choice for affordable midrange laptops despite the fact that it easily qualifies for our list of the best laptops under $500 for all these reasons.

Design and Features

The HP 14 looks like a nice laptop. The chassis in frosted silver lends it some elegance despite the mid-range pricing. 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. Although there are lighter laptops available in this price range, the Acer Aspire 5 weighs 3.97 lbs, compared to 3.24 lbs for the HP 14-fq1025nr. 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 of your peripherals, if not all of them. 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.

Speaker & Display

A 14-inch Full-HD (1920 x 1080) IPS anti-glare display is provided by the HP 14-fq1025nr. 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.

HP 14-fq1025nr Keyboard

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. Due to cost-cutting measures, the majority of cheap laptops only have a maximum brightness of 200 nits, which results in subpar image quality.

Even so, the HP 14 laptop isn't boring, but if you want to work outside, you'll need more. You won't have any problems if you plan to use it indoors or work after dark. 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.

A Battery's Life

HP advertises a battery life of up to 9 hours on the 14-fq1025nr, 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.
