HP are giving consumers the chance to experience cloud computing at the lowest price that we have seen this year. The HP Stream 13 laptop is a fantastic entry into casual computing and we now take a look at a HP Stream 13 Signature Edition Laptop specs review for those that are interested in buying one.
The HP Stream 13 is a new laptop that is not going to break the bank. Like the Google Chromebook, it is not designed for high-end performance but rather getting consumers connected to the internet in the cheapest and most effective way.
With this in mind, let’s take a look at the HP Stream 13 Signature Edition Laptop specs. It features a 13.3-inch HD LED backlit display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.
There’s a 2.16Ghz Intel Celeron N2840 Processor on board, with 2GB of RAM and just 32GB of internal storage. However, this storage is SSD meaning that operation is going to be very fast.
The storage problem is also alleviated by the fact that this model comes included with a 1TB OneDrive account – letting you store your media and files not on the hard drive, but inside the cloud.
Elsewhere, there’s an impressive 7.5 hours of battery life which is not bad at all for this pint-sized laptop. A 64-bit version of Windows 8.1 OS is included, while sound should be better than other budget laptops thanks to the included DTS Studio Sound codec.
Is this laptop suitable for gaming? We wouldn’t recommend it if you are attempting to play high-end games. 2GB of RAM isn’t going to deliver much, whilst Intel HD graphics can only take you so far too.
Like we said though, this isn’t a laptop for gaming. If you just want to stay connected with a casual experience, it’s perfect. The 1TB of cloud storage is going to come in very handy, while a free one-year subscription to Office 365 is the icing on the cake for work purposes.
Take a look at the official HP Stream 13-c077nr specs review above, then let us know what you think about it.
We’ve seen this laptop available for as low as $200 – is this a great price for you?
