There are nowhere near enough tablets running Windows 8.1 with Bing, which means the ones already on the market are in hot demand, although only for a niche market. It is no secret that most of the market share goes to Android and iOS, but if you have an open mind, then the HP Stream 7 Signature Edition Tablet is worth taking a chance. However, if you know of a person who already likes this platform, then this model would make a perfect gift.
This model is not just for one thing, as Microsoft has worked at making it ideal for entertainment and productivity. It’s also very portable thanks to its 7-inch HD IPS touchscreen making it lightweight, sleek and also very slim, although not as much as the iPad Air 2. You can use it for revision, work or entertainment.
Microsoft has given this tablet a free Office 365 Personal subscription for a year, which would usually cost $69.99. with this Stream 7 being a Signature Edition means it has been tuned with performance in mind, which you will see from the specs list below.
Technical specifications – 7-inch HD IPS touchscreen with a resolution of 800 x 1280, Intel Atom Z3735G quad core 1.33 GHz processor, which can be increased to 1.83 GHz when needed, 1GB DDR3L-RS of RAM, 32GB storage, Intel HD Graphics, 3000mAh lithium-ion with up to 8 hours of battery, 2-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 0.3MP up front.
