HP updates its Stream notebooks with more features

HP’s Stream 11 and Stream 13 notebooks have never really been in the spotlight due to their nature of being low-power budget-friendly notebooks but they have actually sold quite well over the past year. Since you can make money from a device that popular, why not then introduce an improved version?

This is what HP has just done – the US company has introduced updated models of its Stream 11 and Stream 13 notebooks. They come with thinner chassis, more color options and longer battery life. Both models are powered by energy-efficient Intel Celeron processors and come with 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch displays, respectively, with both displays running at 1366 x 768 pixels. HP says the new Stream 11 provides up to 11 hours of battery life, while the 13.3-inch Stream 13 offers 8.5 hours of battery life. The Stream 11 is just 0.72 inches thick and weighs 2.6 pounds, while the Stream 13 is a bit heavier at 3.42 pounds and thicker at 0.77 inches. Both devices have 32 GB of eMMC memory on-board so you will have to use the cloud to store more data but Microsoft bundles 1 TB of OneDrive storage with these devices for a year as well as one year of Office 365 Personal. But if this is not enough, Microsoft also provides 60 minutes of Skype calling per month with these two new Stream laptops. The tech specs get finished with the connectivity options that you get – both models offer one USB 3.0 port, one HDMI port and a microSD card reader. The Stream 13 also has two USB 2.0 ports, while the Stream 11 has just one.

We also said the two new Stream notebooks offered new colors – yes, they do. HP has added three new colors to the Stream range and they are Cobalt Blue, Violet Purple and a special Ash Silver hue for the 11-inch model.

The Stream 11 and Stream 13 will ship on October 18 and they will keep the same prices as before, which means you can get the Stream 11 for USD 199 and the Stream 13 for USD 299.
