Display and Design
The HP 2000-2314TU flaunts 15.6-inch HD LED backlit display with a native resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. The outfit has a thickness of 35.8 mm and a weight of 2.45 kg which may prevent you from carrying it for long. The lid has a brushed black finish which looks elegant but the shiny appearance on the inside can attract scratches.
