HP Stream adds Chromebook-like laptops and tablets, with Windows 8



HP has expanded its Stream lineup with four new models, in addition to the previously announced 14-inch version. Like the original 14-inch Stream, these are intended as cloud-reliant systems, using a Web browser to access online services much like a Chromebook does, but with the added flexibility of Windows 8.

The two clamshell laptop versions are the HP Stream 11.6 and the HP Stream 13.3. Both have 1,366×768 displays, with an optional touchscreen on the 13-inch model. The low-power Intel Celeron processor and 32GB of SSD storage allow for a fanless design, but after a full Windows 8 install, there probably won’t be much room left on the SSD for applications and files. Colors include magenta and blue, helping these stand out from typical budget laptops.
