Reviews for the HP Stream 14-cm0004ns
If you’re looking for a sub-$250 laptop that runs Windows 10, you won’t do better than the HP Stream 14. It works for basic web browsing and streaming. Its light footprint and price tag make it a great match for those tied to the cloud and those who love running remote desktops, but its longevity is ultimately hampered by its soldered-in storage and memory. For most people, this will be at best a stopgap between now and their next laptop purchase in a year or two, so we recommend saving up a bit to at least $300 if you're able to.
