HP Pavilion Sleekbook b14-B000ed Network and technique

The networking opportunities are a bit disappointing. The HP Pavilion Sleekbook b14-B000ed has a permanent network connection that is only 100 Mbit / s can get: gigabit is not possible. Furthermore, the only suitable for 2.4 GHz WiFi networks up to 150 Mbit / s. Too bad that HP has saved this.

The HP has a total of three USB ports, two of the USB 3.0 type. There is also an SD card reader and a standard HDMI connection. VGA is missing. Unlike most Ultrabooks you with this HP 540 battery replacement. For the rest, the HP an average laptop with a keyboard with a reasonable attack, though it bounces along pretty well. Also, the touchpad is relatively small. Wipe from right inside, open the touchpad automatically Windows 8 Charms along the screen.

The Sleekbook has no Beats Audio, but speakers from Altec Lansing, combined with 'Dolby Advanced Audio. We once heard worse speakers, but it is not impressive.


The processor in the HP pavilion dv3500 battery Sleekbook b14-B000ed is an Intel Core i3 3217U, a processor from the Ivy Bridge series. This is a relatively new chip, because until recently were still Intel's Core i3 used in the Sandy Bridge series, which are quite slow. He works at 1.8 GHz, has 4 MB cache and Hyper Threading. Especially in graphic terms, the Intel HD Graphics 3000 a lot slower than the Intel HD Graphics 4000 of the latest Intel processor series. The main reason why this processor is slower and cheaper than the i5's is the lack of a Turbo-mode.

The HP Pavilion Sleekbook b14-B000ed (C5R96EA) is not a laptop which we are very warm. It works fine, but the spell on the battery is disappointing, the performance of the HP mini 311 battery system as a whole are not particularly well screen is no winner.

If you are in this class are shopping there is quite a lot for sale, for example, the ASUS X202E. This model is lighter, smaller and with a touchscreen. This makes it a strong competitor for this model of HP and in our opinion a more interesting choice. It is perhaps more interesting as this HP product for some lower price in the market place.
