HP announces Low Cost Tablets & Laptops
A new range known as Stream was recently unveiled by HP as the company’s Windows-powered tablets and laptops. The company has been working with Microsoft to combat Google’s affordable Android and Chromebook products.
First, we have HP Stream 7 which is a device that sports a 7 inch display and runs on an Intel processor for just USD$99 (MYR325). Along side this device is the Stream 8 tablet which sports an 8 inch screen and 200MB of free LTE data per month for just USD$149 (MYR485). Both products will be on American soil by November and if you get the device, you get a free year of Microsoft cloud services.
As for laptops, HP has released a 11.6 inch laptop known as the Stream 11 that costs USD$199 (MYR648). Alongside it is the 13.3 inch Stream 13 that is equipped with a touchscreen variant and cost USD$299 (MYR975). Both will be available in America by November as well and both feature a fanless design, Intel Celeron chips, 32GB of flash storage and come with 1TB of OneDrive storage for the first year.
So, what do you think? Would you prefer what HP is offering in its line up or would you still go for Google’s Chromebook? I personally think that HP might just be the way to go if you want specific programs to use on your laptop. Let us know your choice in the comment section below.
