HP Stream 11 Review – A sub $200 Windows 8.1 Notebook PC – Compared to Stream 14 Updated on December 26, 2014 By Windows Guy 25 Comments Buy it on Amazon – lon.tv/yqz50 (affiliate link) See all of my Stream 11 videos here: lon.tv/stream11 VIDEO INDEX: 0:08 – Hardware overview 1:1… Video Rating: 4 / 5 Find More Demo Windows 8.1 Articles By Windows Guy 25 Comments David Di Franco December 26, 2014 Really great review! I’m considering getting this as a notebook simply to blog with, as well as some light web browsing. That seems to be the perfect usage based on everything you explained. Christian Koncz December 26, 2014 This seems to be a big blow to Chrome OS. Why would you spend more on a Chromebook when the HP stream is just as fast or faster, has more cloud storage as standard, can run many apps that chromebooks can’t and has a far better selection of games? I own 2 chromebooks, but if I had to make a purchase now I’d probably buy one of these. True, Windows has many problems and it is far less secure than Chrome OS, but having skype, a full office suite and minecraft probably outweigh those cons. Rawrdoll December 26, 2014 This review has been very helpful, I’m going to buy this for my uncle who only wants a laptop for writing papers for his students and portable enough to take to class. Someone said on an Amazon review that this has an HDMI port, which is a plus. I might even try to install some indie Steam game. Great review. :) Lon Seidman December 26, 2014 HP just released their under $200 Windows PC – the Stream 11 . Here’s my review: tipoomaster December 26, 2014 What are the speeds on the eMMC flash memory on the Stream 14 and 11? I saw you do a test on the 7. I wonder if they all use the same 32GB NAND part? Vonny Erich December 26, 2014 How do you reformat it? there’s no thumb drive/disc/recovery partition :| Matthew Phillips December 26, 2014 lol I have the same coffee mug. joel750 December 26, 2014 Do you still need to download Anti-Virus software’s for this just because it’s a Windows 8.1? I’m curious because i think I want to buy one but I’m hesitating because of online security problems. If anyone could answer this I’m grateful and I highly appreciate it Thank You…… Robyn Douglas December 26, 2014 I NEED HELP. I NEED HELP. I NEED HELP! CAN YOU TAKE THE STREAM 11 APART LIKE.. TO MAKE IT A TABLET?! PLEASE HELP! Cryptic Fawn December 26, 2014 Hey Lon, would you suggest this laptop over the Toshiba Chromebook 2 for someone who’s a writer (not really a gamer)? I do all my writing on Google Docs, so Office does nothing for me. FroZe Enity December 26, 2014 Do u think this is good for jobs like processing videos with a capture card KillerReviews97 December 26, 2014 The hp stream 14 processor the A4 6400t is better overall than this one it scores higher in both the pass mark test and pass mark single core test, in addition the R3 is better than the bay trail GPU. Shame about the Octane test but in general the A4 is better as well as consuming less power. Ricky Olivares December 26, 2014 I can’t wait to buy this, and like some people are saying I’m going to treat it like a Chromebook. Only without as many limitations. Still going to act as if the browser is the most important thing and use web apps. Only thing I’m going to download is the Pokemon TCG game and an iTunes alternative. I don’t understand people who buy low priced products and expect everything. Jorge Espinoza December 26, 2014 Thinking about getting this. Could I be able to play some games on steam specifically games like Hotline Miami? Daily Bryce December 26, 2014 Do you think this would be good with Adobe Premiere Elements 11? Deva Maria December 26, 2014 Awesome review!!!! My wife and I were considering buying this and after your review we will most likely get it! Good Job!!! Your Reviews are clear and easy to understand ali saad December 26, 2014 Hi I have some questions about the windows version that come with the HP stream 11 first / can you change the display language via language packs ? second/ can you add windows media center ? Elexis Davis December 26, 2014 Do you think this device would hold up well for college courses? A majority of my classes will be online and I’m looking for something price friendly. One of my teachers told me windows 7 is the best to get but is 8.1 good too? The only windows 7 devices I see are older laptops, I don’t know please help lol. Yaroslav Funt December 26, 2014 I would prefer the 200$ Acer C720 Chromebook. It’s CPU seems to be much better in octane (around 10-11k). I got one my self and intend to put Linux on it. Markens Thelusma December 26, 2014 The screen looks a bleached out…was it cause you dimmed the brightness or something? Lucky pillgrim December 26, 2014 and za subscriber button :D Jailynne Mejia December 26, 2014 Lon, I would like to ask you which should i buy. The Hp Stream 11 or the Toshiba Chromebook 2? Or should I just wait for some other new release that are budget friendly too and might be better? Russpuppy December 26, 2014 I’m curious what the initial start-up time is like? Also waking from sleep time?
