It is remarkable to see inexpensive Home windows PCs that are now competitive with very similar Chromebook devices. This one particular from HP performs pretty very well in most apps while its computational overall performance lags behind its 3D and gaming abilities.

The Stream has a fourteen” non-touchscreen exhibit with 2 gigs of RAM and a 32 gig solid condition drive. Neither are upgradeable. About 50 percent the drive’s capacity is taken up by running process and its recovery partition. So expect only about sixteen-seventeen gigabytes of totally free house. They deliver a totally free two yr membership to Microsoft’s cloud provider which will come with one hundred gigs of cloud storage.

Gaming overall performance is astonishing. The HP Stream scored above twenty,000 on the 3DMark pill activity overall performance check which is extremely respectable. It also extremely easily played Portal 2 at the Stream’s indigenous 1366×768 resolution and with anti aliasing turned on.

Web browsing overall performance was not as fantastic. The Stream scored decrease than most of the Chromebooks I’ve analyzed in the Google Octane Javascript check (working on Google Chrome). Web browsing overall performance is a bit sluggish but usable.

In general build high-quality is wonderful. The machine feels solid and is relatively light-weight excess weight at just less than 4 kilos. The keyboard is comfy and the keys are comprehensive sized. But the trackpad feels squishy and low-priced. And there are far too many gesture instructions that flip home windows all above the area that need to have to be shut off with no noticeable way to do it.

But over-all this laptop computer is a fantastic value and very well created. Devoid of even a cooling enthusiast it is fully solid condition.

    Would the performance of this notebook be OK to handle external monitor 21' for simple tasks such as internet browsing and MS Office? Thanks for the reply.

    Lon,

    I think I'll stick with the Stream 11 because it too tempting to get the Stream 13 with free 200mb of internet per month for the rest of the device life at an increase cost.

    I don't get it?  It has a worst processor than the Stream 11 and 13 yet it has a better GPU?  That really don't make sense, that a head scratch er.  Also love your video and subscribed!

    I want to buy this laptop but I also like the stream 11, I want to play minecraft and maybe black ops 2 on the laptop. Which one would run the two games better? (I would also like to do class work on it and web browsing too).
