About HP 14s-cf3074TU 14-inch Thin and Light-Weight Laptop

HP 14s-cf3074TU is one of the best laptops under 40000 in my opinion. Because at this price point you won’t get a laptop with dedicated graphics. In this laptop, you will get a powerful processor, Speed, performance, good battery and obviously HD display.

If you are a regular reader in this website Laptop Review articles then you may have read 14q CS0023TU review. In terms of design, look, colour and weight it is as same as 14q cs0023TU.

This new budget laptop HP 14s-cf3074TU comes with 14-inch Display, Jet Black Colour and its weight is 1.47 Kg. I am using a similar laptop with the same design, look, colour and weight. So according to my experience, you can carry and it will fit in your backpack easily.

14-inch Display and Design

This new laptop comes with a 14-inch HD display. In terms of display quality its good but in this price range we can expect an FHD display. If you want to buy this for typing, normal use, office use then it is ok. But if you are thinking to purchase it for movie watching especially with your whole family, then I would like to clear you will not get a better output.

The two sides of the display are very thin compared to above where an HD True Vision WebCam with an in-built microphone attached.

Best Performance for Office Use, Student Use Under 40000

In this laptop, you will get to see a very good combination of processor, RAM, storage except for Display. In my opinion HD display is more than enough for a multitasking, blogging or office use laptop. Right now I am writing this blog post on the same laptop with having HD display, i3 7th gen processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD.

Processor: HP 14 Ultra-Thin & Light 14-inch Laptop comes with Intel Core i3 10th gen processor.

RAM: In this laptop, you will get 8GB DDR4 RAM. If you wish you can upgrade RAM upto 16GB. But 8GB RAM is perfect, it will provide enough performance. You don’t need to upgrade it.

Storage: HP 14 Ultra-Thin & Light 14-inch Laptop comes with 256GB SSD. This is the reason behind its light-weight. In my opinion, you will not get enough storage but 256GB SSD will make this laptop faster than any laptop with HDD.


Battery: HP 14s-cf3074TU comes with 3-cell 41WHr Battery and it will provide around 7-8 hours backup during first one or two months. And after that, you will get 6 hours battery backup on an average.

Best Laptop Under 40000 Price in India?

I bought HP 14q cs0023TU on Nov 2019 at Rs 29,000. But now the situation has changed due to Covid-19 and many companies have increased laptop, mobile, computer accessories prices.

From last 3 months, I have reviewed many laptops under 40000 on this website. But according to my opinion, it is one of the greatest among those laptops. Because you will get 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, I3 10th gen processor etc. If you don’t have any problem without FHD display and pre-installed MS Office 2019 then it would be a great choice for you.

As of now, HP 14s-cf3047TU Price in India Rs 38,031. Probably you will get 2000-3000 discount during festive seasons or offers from Amazon.
