HP Stream is now listed as "Coming soon" on the company's US online store but, unfortunately, its price is much higher than anticipated - "Starting at $299" instead of the sub-$200 USD values that have been in the rumor mill lately. "Lighten up. Your content is in the cloud." says the product page headline but, unfortunately, most Chrome OS-powered notebooks with similar specs are at least $50 USD cheaper.

HP Stream packs the following specs and features:

  • Processor: AMD A4 Micro-6400T APU with Radeon R3 graphics (fanless design)
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 32 GB or 64 GB eMMC internal storage and 100 GB OneDrive free cloud storage for two years
  • Display: 14-inch HD BrightView WLED-backlit with 1,366X768 pixels
  • Camera/Audio: TrueVision HD, 720p at 24 fps; Beats Audio with four speakers
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 combo, 2XUSB 2.0, 1XUSB 3.0, HDMI, SD card reader
  • Operating system: Windows 8.1
  • Colors: silver, purple, green
  • Weight/Dimensions: 3.86 pounds; 13.54X9.45X0.7 inches

Unlike its US counterpart, HP's UK Store shows all the details of the HP Stream and also an estimated shipping date of 3-4 weeks. The price is naturally higher than in the US - £229, approximately $370 USD.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
