The HP 14-df0018wm will be one of the cheapest laptops this holiday season. Its Black Friday price on Walmart will be $149, starting 7:00PM PT / 10:00PM ET on Wednesday, November 27 2019. As a nice add-on, the package includes a free 1-year subscription for Microsoft Office 365 Personal suite, a value of $70.

Unsurprisingly, the “Natural Silver” plastic-clad HP 14-df0018wm is an entry-level notebook. It features a basic 14-inch display and budget-class computing components – the Intel Celeron N4000 processor, 4GB of system memory (RAM), and 64GB of eMMC internal storage.

The 14″ screen is marked as HD SVA BrightView. It means the display features the basic HD resolution without sharpness of Full HD or better resolutions. SVA means standard viewing angles, which are narrower than wide viewing angles you can find on pricier laptops and smartphones. BrightView means the panel is glossy / glare, as opposed to matte / anti-glare.

The Celeron N4000 is among the slowest laptop processors on the market. It is good only for light computing tasks like web browsing, Office document editing, or movie playback. But even in these cases, the Celeron N4000 can’t deliver smoothness of the mainstream laptop processors such as those from the more popular Intel Core series. Also, 4GB of RAM is a bare minimum for normal laptop use. But, the 4GB size can be sufficient if you use only a couple of programs or browser tabs at the same time. The included 64GB of Flash memory-based eMMC data storage space is on the small side, too. Nevertheless, 64GB can be enough if you don’t store large files on the laptop, such as high-resolution videos and don’t install a lot of large programs. The laptop has a built-in SD card reader, in which you can insert a memory card to expand the storage capacity.

The HP 14-df0018wm has a 41 WHr battery. It hasn’t a huge capacity, but the good thing is the notebook’s computer components aren’t power hungry. HP says the 14-df0018wm has a battery life of “up to 14 hours and 15 minutes” for video playback, and “up to 12 hours and 30 minutes” for video streaming over a wireless connection.

On the software side, the laptop comes with Windows 10 Home operating system in S mode. S mode allows you to run only app store-based Windows apps. That improves security of the system. If you want to use traditional Windows programs besides app store-based ones, you can switch to full Windows 10 Home for free.

    Jake

    Do you think this computer is enough to do some light video editing?

    • Dan

      Hi, I did Full HD video editing in Windows Movie Maker on a Pentium processor with very similar performance to the Celeron N4000 used in this laptop. It can be done but the difference between it and the mainstream processors (I used an 8th Gen Core i5) is very noticeable in video editing. Editing itself is more responsive on the mid-range CPUs like the i5, but the biggest difference is in video export times. I think I was twice faster on the i5. So, video editing can be done on the on the Celeron N4000 (if video editing software isn’t too demanding), but slower than on the popular mid-range processors. Other limitations of this laptop when it comes to video editing is its relatively small RAM size of 4GB, which can be problematic, depending on your software and use. Also, 64GB is quite small storage if you want to store videos on it. And, the display based on TN technology is quite bad if you want to see accurate colors of your videos and have wide viewing angles.

      Overall, video editing can be done on this laptop, but it’s probably among the most inadequate laptops for that task. And of course, if you do high-resolution editing like 4K, the situation with this laptop is even worse.

      Yes. You’ll also want to download more ram and a 32 core processor while you’re at it.

    Can I put in an internal harddrive with let’s say 500GB or 1TB of memory?

    Just opened the box to set up.
    The touchpad has the mouse moving all over the place.
    Went in and adjusted all the settings to slow and I still can’t control the pointer. Any idea?

    Would this be a good laptop strictly for online school usage? I normally put all of my assignments on a jump drive anyway…

      Hi, the Celeron N4000 inside the laptop is among the slowest on the market. But, if you do your school work only in 1 – 3 web browser tabs without other programs running at the same time, the Celeron N4000 combined with 4GB RAM can be good enough. It certainly won’t provide as smooth user experience as the popular mid-range processors like the Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 or AMD Ryzen 3 / 5 / 7, but it can handle a few browser tabs without major slowdowns.

    Can I add an external hard drive to this?

      Yes, you can connect an external hard drive if it uses USB connection. Most of the external HDDs on the market are USB compatible, so you only need to plug it in one of the notebook’s USB ports.
