HP Stream is a Chromebook killer priced at $200

AMD Mullins SoC, 14-inch display

We have been hearing reports of a new breed of affordable Windows notebooks for months. It is alleged that a number of vendors is working on $200-$250 designs to compete with Chromebooks, but details have been sketchy so far.

According to Mobile Geeks, the upcoming HP Stream appears to be one such design. Based on an AMD A4 Micro-6400T quad-core SoC clocked at 1.6GHz, this Windows 8.1 notebook should sell for $200.

It sounds like a fair deal, as it sports 2GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of eMMC storage, Bluetooth, USB 3.0 and a 14-inch 1366x768 display. Microsoft is planning to sweeten the deal by providing 100GB of OneDrive storage for two years. The HP Stream also features four speakers, Beats Audio, Miracast support and a card reader.

The spec sounds good enough and the only complaint could involve storage, as eMMC drives can be rather sluggish, although this does not have to be the case. There is also talk of a full HD version with a touch-enabled screen. This SKU should also pack a faster processor.
