HP has just expanded its Stream line of laptops with three new devices that have better specs and features, yet still come with affordable price tags. Interestingly, the Palo Alto-headquartered company has decided not to refresh the HP Stream 13.
Ahead of the devices' official release in the market, HP has revealed the specs and features of its new collection of Stream named laptops. And it appears that HP is pushing for portability and affordability with these products that are intended for the modest user, as per Tech Radar.
The newest addition to the Stream family is the 14-inch variant, which could be called the HP Stream 14 for obvious reasons. This variant is the replacement of the HP Stream 13, and it offers a larger display while also sporting a smaller build.
The HP Stream 14 comes with a 2016 Celeron processor, fast 2x2 802.11ac WiFI, 4GB of RAM, 32GB flash storage, a 14-inch screen with 1,366x768 screen resolution and a battery pack that is capable of powering the device for 10 hours and 45 minutes, according to Engadget.
On the other hand, the two other variants, the HP Stream 11 and the HP Stream x360, are rocking 11-inch displays. The difference between the two is the fact that the screen found in the x360 is high-definition and can be adjusted to the hybrid laptop’s different configurations. Nevertheless, both the HP Stream 11 and the HP Stream x360 mostly come with the same specifications as the 14-inch version. Also, all three of them have USB 3.0 ports for faster data transfers.
As for the devices’ pricing, UberGizmo has learned that the lightweight HP Stream 14 costs $220, while the HP Stream 11 costs $199. The most expensive yet still affordable variant, which is the HP Stream x360, has a market value of $249. The HP Stream 11 is hitting stores on Aug. 24, while the HP Stream 14 is arriving on Sept. 7. Meanwhile, the HP Stream x360 is slated for release in select regions only in September.
