The pitch for laptops running Google's Chrome OS, known as Chromebooks, is pretty straightforward. Why pay extra for a laptop running Microsoft's operating system, when all you really need is access to a Web browser? For some people, nearly everything they use a PC for is online, from webmail to social media to streaming music and video.
That argument seems to have resonated, as Chromebooks are now a huge part of the budget laptop market, and several models, including the recent Toshiba Chromebook 2 and Samsung Chromebook 2 , are actually quite good. But, the success of Chromebooks is eating into Microsoft's budget laptop market share, which is a big reversal from several years ago when low-cost netbooks were (briefly) popular.
The reason you might choose this system over a Chromebook, which is really a more polished (if limited) low-end experience, is that you can install Windows apps such as Photoshop, Office, or iTunes. They won't run great, but they're there if you need them in a pinch.
Overall performance was roughly comparable to current-gen Chromebooks or basic clamshells and hybrids , faster in some tests, slower in others, and our hands-on time with the system clearly indicated that will not be your all-day, every day computer. The Stream 11 did, however, have one killer feature. It ran for about eight hours on our battery drain test, which was very impressive, given our modest expectations.
There are not many cases where you'll find a ton of utility in a laptop, especially one with the learning curve But this little blue box did more than we expected, making it a rare budget PC that's also a good value.
The HP Stream 11 looks nice, at least for a laptop. Skipping the cheap glossy grey plastic of so many budget laptops, it's instead covered with a matte blue (or pink) pattern, with a subtle dotted gradient on the keyboard tray. The outer surface is fingerprint-resistant, and the body is stiff enough to feel safe to travel with, although everyone who looked at our test system saw a little bit of warping on the base, bowing the keyboard tray up to the center-right. It wasn't enough to make the laptop look truly deformed, but it certainly wasn't ruler-straight.
Thanks to its low-power platform, the system can run without fans, which helps with weight, heat, and battery life. The Stream 11 weighs a modest 2.8 pounds (1.3 kg), and has been, in our experience quiet and cool while running. Between home, school, and work-your mobile life demands a PC that just doesn't quit. With long-lasting battery life, the HP Stream does everything your smartphone can't. Post, play, and stay productive all day with the familiarity of a Windows PC that's
