Overall, with a full version of Windows 8.1, 1TB of cloud storage, and access to Office 365, it is obvious that Microsoft has designed the Stream 11 to occupy a market that was previously taken over by Chromebooks. Although it is still a budget laptop with a few tradeoffs to prove it, I think the drawbacks can be forgiven when you look at all of the other advantages to this little laptop.

For an inexpensive Windows laptop, our top pick is the HP Stream 13 (13-c020nr), which is merely $30 more expensive, but offers similar portability and performance without the wonky touchpad issues. The Stream 11 does, however, offer a nice alternative to the Asus Transformer Book T100TA (64GB), provided you don't need tablet capability, and is a good choice over the Acer Chromebook C720P-2600 if you want to save a few extra bucks and still have Windows onboard.

Model: The HP Stream 11 is Microsoft's answer to the emerging low cost Chromebooks flooding the market. While within the low cost category, the HP Stream 11 is optimized for slimness. With a fanless design, the build is barely 0.8 inch (2.03 cm) thick. It comes in Orchid Magenta, certainly a loud, eye catching color which might prove too bright for users who prefer more conservative designs. The screen is an 11.6 inch display with a 1366 x 768 resolution, which provides decent image quality.
The hardware for the HP Stream 11 comes with a few surprises. The designers squeezed in an almost full sized keyboard, which is very unusual in 11.6 inch devices. However, the Delete, Esc and arrow keys are half sized. The HP Stream 11 comes with an Intel Celeron dual core processor with 2 GB of RAM, which is sufficient to smoothly run most light applications. The HP Stream 11 also comes with a couple of additional perks such as 1 TB of OneDrive storage and Microsoft Office 365 Personal for a year.Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

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.
