It's a close-run thing between the HP Stream 11 and the Asus EeeBook X205TA. The Stream 11 has a small performance advantage thanks to its higher clock speed, and the screen is marginally better. However, this comes with a significant 300g weight penalty. Either way, both of the laptops are a steal at £180 and are well worth your cash if you're on a budget. If the Stream 11 doesn't quite fit your needs then check out our regularly-updated Best Laptops and buying guide.

Yes, if you have to stick to a tight budget. For £179.99, the HP Stream 11 is ridiculously good value for money for a Windows laptop, particularly considering you get an Office 365 subscription worth over £50 with it. Key features like battery life, speaker quality and design all left really good impressions on us, and ensure the Stream 11 will serve almost any student well. It might not allow you to watch all of the Rocky films back-to-back, but it’s more than good enough for casual entertainment and work.

What’s more, it’s a bit more versatile than a Chromebook, working brilliantly with online apps, but still able to run more conventional Windows software if you’re sensible about your requirements or pair it with an external USB 3 hard disk. As a result, while the Toshiba Chromebook 2 offers better hardware and a nicer screen, the Stream 11 outmatches it for sheer value for money. It’s the best sub-£200 laptop money can buy.

The HP Stream 11 is a full-fledged Windows device that is priced lower than most of the Chrome OS devices. This makes it a no-brainer for shoppers that are looking for a budget laptop that will help them to get things done on the go. The HP Steam 11 is also very portable and sports an exceptional keyboard. For a device of this calibre, the audio is not bad and you can always give it a boost with a great pair of headphones. Additionally, the HDMI port allows you to use the Stream 11 on your flat screen television for large screen entertainment. Plus, it comes with a Windows Store gift card which reduces the price.

Overall, the Stream 11 is one of HP’s more interesting entries in the consumer laptop space, and it’s an entry-level unit that should be just fine for anyone who wants a basic and small computer. Its battery life is good (it lasted 6hr 17min in our video rundown test), its screen isn’t glossy (though it does look a little dull), and the overall build and feel of the unit is not cheap (despite the price).

For many people, the fact that Windows laptops can run desktop apps (and work fully offline) means they're inherently better than Chromebooks, regardless of the price. As a bonus, the Stream 11 actually costs less than most Chrome OS devices, which could make it a no-brainer for some shoppers.

The pitch for laptops running Google's Chrome OS, known as Chromebooks, is pretty straightforward. The HP Stream 11 aims to be an cloud-focused laptop, much like a Chromebook, but with the added utility of Windows 8. It's a rock-bottom budget laptop, so don't get your hopes up, but the battery life is impressive.

There's a war going on between Microsoft and Google, and because of that shoppers will ultimately win. But is the HP Stream 11 a winner? In many ways, yes. This ultraportable is more versatile than a Chromebook, and I like the comfortable keyboard and loud speakers. And while the playful design isn't for everyone, it will definitely stand out in a crowd.

The $199 HP Stream 11 is a surprisingly successful Windows alternative to a Chromebook for mostly cloud-based computing. The Stream 11 is a niche product compared to low-priced laptops with conventional storage, but we've given four stars to numerous Chromebooks and the HP deserves no less.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
