The Best Laptops You Can Buy Right Now For Every Budget | TIME – TIME
For $200, HP’s aggressively priced laptop offers a full Windows experience, impressive battery life, and a decent keyboard. Plus, its bold color options are a welcome change from the boring array of silver and black clamshells on the market. The Stream also comes with a free year of Microsoft Office 365, making it a compelling option for students.
HP will be releasing new Stream computer models with stronger WiFi antenna technology, a thinner design, and longer battery life in the coming weeks. Some critics, myself included, have complained about the quality of the Stream’s trackpad; it’s unclear if the newer models will address that concern. The cheapest model comes with an 11-inch screen, while the 14-inch model will be priced at $219.
