HP Stream 11 Review: A New Take On Low Cost Computing

The low cost Windows laptop world has been a rather frustrating experience over the last several years. Manufacturers created big, bulky designs packed with low resolution TN displays and some of the slowest components they could dig up. We are still at a point where the average consumer thinks more is better, so low cost laptops would always have low performance mechanical hard drives.

HP has the task of changing our perception of what a low cost Windows laptop can be, but is the Stream 11 enough or does it simply bring back memories of past netbooks? Read on for the full review.
