The HP 14-an010nr W2M51UA#ABA is an affordable subnotebook that features an AMD APU, 32 GB SSD, and 4 GB of RAM. It’s lightweight and compact, making it perfect for students or mobile professionals who want to take their laptop with them on the go. The performance is somewhat limited and, like most subnotebooks, is really only suitable for web browsing, checking email, and consuming media.
14 Inch “HD” Display
I think that using the term HD to describe this display is somewhat of a misnomer. Yes, this display does have a resolution that exceeds the 720p HD standard, however, the resolution is still lower than the 1080p standard. It’s a little unfair to consumers to label something as HD without telling them what that really means, but I digress.
The resolution of this 14-inch WLED panel is 1366×768, much lower than the 1920×1080 Full HD standard. The display is bright and isn’t altogether unpleasant to look at but don’t expect it to blow you out of the water with extreme detail and clarity: it is what it is.
AMD E2-7110 APU with Radeon R2 Graphics
I remember back when having a laptop equipped with a Radeon graphics chip actually meant something. The graphics chip in this one is barely capable of playing games from 2014 on the lowest settings. Of course, not many people expect to do any gaming on a subnotebook, especially not one in this price range.
The AMD E2-7110 APU is already a bit outdated, being released at the beginning of 2015. It is a quad core processor that clocks at 1.8 GHz, nothing too spectacular. I would compare the performance to that of a modern smartphone. If you don’t have 100 tabs open you won’t have any problems, however, don’t expect it to run video editing software or any other intensive application smoothly.
4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM
The one good thing is that this laptop does have 4 GB of RAM. This helps system performance quite a bit, especially when multitasking. You can’t really expect much else in a notebook in this price range.
32 GB SSD
I was actually really surprised to see such a small hard drive in this system. The one good thing is that it IS an SSD, meaning your operating system and applications should load quickly. The only downside is the somewhat limited amount of space. Once you get the operating system installed there isn’t a heck of a lot of hard drive room left. There’s also no optical drive so you can’t burn a DVD or even load software from CD for that matter.
