HP Stream review

 

The HP Stream succeeds where many others have failed: making cheap look good. And I mean cheap in a literal sense -- the best laptops start around $1,000, while the HP starts at $200 . It's £149 in the UK, or around AU$300 in Australia.

The HP Stream is a stylish little laptop with a comfortable keyboard and long-lasting battery. It includes a year of Microsoft Office 365 and 1TB of OneDrive online storage.

Performance and trackpad response can be slow. The 32GB SSD storage is low.

The HP Stream laptop deftly balances fashion and function at a rock-bottom price.

HP Stream 13 (13-c020nr)

 

The HP Stream 13 is a very inexpensive full Windows 8.1 ultraportable laptop, but its long battery life, looks, and speed resemble that of a much pricier system.

Inexpensive. Very good battery life. eMMC solid-state drive (SSD) speeds up operations. Good selection of ports. Has OneDrive storage and Office 365 free for a year.

Narrow viewing angles. Somewhat tinny speakers.

The HP Stream 13 is a great laptop for the money. It reverses the conventional wisdom that you have to pay a premium for an ultraportable laptop, and it undercuts the pricing of most of our recent Chromebook review units by anywhere from $20 to $100....

HP Stream 13 Notebook Review

 

Chromebook rival. If users do not find the color of the Stream 13 appealing, they will at least find the inner values attractive. Its silent operation, long battery life, and low price make HP's laptop interesting. A one-year license for MS Office 365...

Priced at 250 Euros (~$272), the silent 13.3-inch laptop offers enough computing power for office applications and Internet use. It also features decent input devices, which together with the long battery life, make the Stream 13 a portable typewriter...

HP Stream 13-c102ng Notebook Review

 

Colorful. Once again, the second generation of HP's new Stream 13 stands out from the masses with its colors. It is a kind of Windows alternative to inexpensive Chromebooks. The very solid overall concept is, however, affected by some minor flaws.

silent device, matte display, decent input devices, battery runtime

low display brightness, throttling under load, only 12 months warranty

Playful, youthful and alternative is the right description for the design of the new HP Stream 13. It is not the first time that we have had the chance to review a device from this series. Since the last version, the manufacturer has mainly replaced...

HP Stream 13 Review and Ratings

 

The bigger sibling of HP's landmark Stream 11 delivers the productivity basics in a Chromebook-busting $229 package, with LTE and touch-screen models available for big spenders.

Bargain price ; Comfortable keyboard ; Good battery life

Narrow viewing angles ; Lo-fi audio

While they didn't shine in our performance benchmarks, the HP Streams finished 1-2 in one important metric, each lasting more than nine hours in our strenuous battery rundown test (looping a video with brightness at 50 percent and volume at 100 percent).
