While HP has been busy churning out cheap Android devices, it hasn’t forgotten about its Windows products. That said, HP recently unveiled four new affordable Windows devices: the Stream 11 and Stream 13 laptops and the Stream 7 and Stream 8 tablets.
Priced at $199, the new HP Stream 11 (pictured above) is an 11.6-inch laptop with a dual-core Intel Celeron processor and 32GB internal storage. It has a fan-less design, and therefore doesn’t make noise as is typical with gaming laptops. The Stream 11 also features up to 8 hours of battery life, DTS Studio Sound, and wireless sync with other devices thru Bluetooth.
For $229, the HP Stream 13 boasts a “crystal-clear HD display” that measures 13.3 inches diagonal and has optional touchscreen. There is also an optional 4G connectivity. Both the Stream 11 and Stream 13 are available in two colors: Orchid Magenta and Horizon Blue.
If portability is of utmost importance, then the HP Stream 7 is available for just $99. It’s powered by a quad-core Intel processor and boasts a vibrant HD display. The $149.99 HP Stream 8 (photos below), on the other hand, offers a larger screen real estate. Its “free 4G for life” feature is also quite interesting, though it’s sadly limited to T-Mobile mobile users in the US.
All four devices are powered by a full Windows 8.1 experience and bundled with a one-year subscription to Office 365 and 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage. Note that the prices may vary when these devices arrive in the Philippines.
These slew of new devices are the follow-up to the HP Stream, a $299 14-inch laptop announced earlier last month. Most of them may still not beat the prices offered by the company’s Android-powered devices, but the price gap is certainly (albeit slowly) shrinking.
