79% HP Stream 8 5900ng Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Surf for free. The HP Stream 8 is an 8-inch Windows tablet with an integrated 3G modem, currently on the market for 209 Euros (~$247). The tablet also comes with 200 MB of data usage every month for 2 years - without a contract. Is this an enticing offer?
70% The best budget Windows tablet
Source: Digital Trends English
The HP Stream 8 is one of the best affordable Windows tablets that we have seen and the optional keyboard case makes it a great product altogether. There are a few issues here and there but overall, it's worth the money.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
Z3735G: SoC with an integrated quad-core Atom processor clocked up to 1.83 GHz, an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a single channel (32 bit) DDR3L-RS-1333 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

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.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
