HP Stream costs $299 USD in the US
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.
