HP SlateBook 14 review: Android? On a laptop?

Even with a crisp display and comfortable keyboard, the SlateBook 14 doesn't have enough to recommend it. With an operating system that was never meant to be used on a laptop, it's a poor choice compared to less-expensive Windows laptops and Chromebooks.

Pros
  • Good battery life
  • Sharp display
  • Comfortable keyboard, generally good build quality
Cons
  • Android is awkward to use with a mouse
  • Polarizing design
  • Heavy compared to an Android tablet with a keyboard dock
  • A poor value versus Chromebooks or Windows laptops
