HP broadens its entry-level notebook, tablets families

Many of us were disappointed when the HP Stream debuted with a $300 price tag instead of the $199 that was originally promised, but it looks as though those concerns were a bit premature. The company today has announced a new 11.6” member to the Stream family that will indeed feature sub-$200 pricing.
The cheapest Stream notebook features an 11.6” display, Intel Celeron processor, and 32GB of eMMC flash memory onboard. A 13.3” model will also be available with the same processor and storage specs. Both notebooks feature a 720p screen resolution, a fanless design, DTS Studio Sound, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Windows 8.1 with Bing, and will be available in Orchid Magenta or Horizon Blue.
The Stream 11.6 will be priced at $199, while the 13.3” model will be priced slightly higher at $229. Models of the Stream 13.3 that are equipped with optional 4G wireless connectivity will come with 200MB/month of free data for one year. Both Stream notebooks will come with one free year of 1TB OneDrive cloud storage, one free year of Office 365 Personal, and a $25 gift card for use at the Microsoft Store.

In addition, HP is also debuting two new tablets that run Windows 8.1 with Bing. The Stream 7 and Stream 8 [obviously] feature 7” and 8” screens respectively, and will be priced at $99 and $149 respectively. HP isn’t ready to divulge additional specs for the two tablets, but we do know that they too will come with one year of 1TB OneDrive and Office 365 Personal subscriptions. Likewise, the 4G variant of the Stream 8 tablet will also get the same 200MB/month deal as the Stream 13.3 notebook.
HP’s new Stream family of products will be available in November.
