HP Stream range gets expanded with new tablets and laptops
One notable name among the tablet and laptop market would be HP, and this time around, HP intends to expand the HP Stream range of affordable thin-and-light Windows devices by offering two brand new tablets, and an equal number of laptops to boot. All in all, they will be the HP Stream 7 and HP Stream 8 tablets, while the new HP Stream laptops will arrive in 11.6” and 13.3” screen sizes.
Let us take a closer look at the HP Stream 7 and HP Stream 8 tablets first – as their name suggests, these happen to be 7” and 8” tablets which run on the Windows operating system, and will carry an Intel processor underneath the hood to get all of the hard processing work done along the way. Of course, your productivity will not be hindered either, thanks to the included 1-year subscription of Microsoft Office 365 Personal that will arrive with 1TB of OneDrive online storage as well as up to 60 minutes of Skype each month for you to hold conferences and phone calls to business associates, family members and friends who are far away from where you live. Not only that, the HP Stream 8 tablet will also boast of an optional 200MB of free 4G data each month without the need to sign up for any annual contract for the entire life of the device.
As for the two new HP Stream laptops, there will be 11.6” and 13.3” screen sizes to choose from, where they both come in an innovative fanless design that are powered by high efficiency Intel Celeron processors with 32GB of eMMC flash memory to help you get started right out of the box. Simply said, these are extremely basic computing machines, and you will not be able to play any games that require a decent graphics card. At least they operate in a cool and quiet manner, while featuring a stylish gradient design that will boast of Orchid Magenta and Horizon Blue colors. Just like the two Stream tablets, it will also arrive with a 1-year subscription of Microsoft Office 365 Personal which includes 1TB of OneDrive online storage, not to mention a $25 gift card right in the box that lets you purchase apps or games from the Windows Store outright.
Expect the HP Stream 7 and HP Stream 8 tablets to retail for $99.99 and $149.99, respectively, as they arrive in the U.S. later this November, while the HP Stream 11.6” model will cost $199.99 with the HP Stream 13.3” model going for $229.99 in November as well.
