HP Stream 7: More Mini PC than Tablet

The Stream 7 is a cheap Windows based tablet priced at only US$99. I have used it for about a month till date so I thought I should share my past one month experience. The price point makes for an inexpensive tablet that sits alongside typically China-branded cheap tablets that traditionally run Android. It is more like a normal computer than a tablet, as it runs the full Windows 8.1 platform. It is therefore compatible with all the usual Windows applications, not just the Modern UI apps that you get from the Microsoft App Store.

There’s significantly less popularity for Windows devices, and they generally don’t attract the same sort of attention as Apple or Android tablets. Well, with the low price, that might just shift things a little. It’s an attractive deal. There are a number of freebies to sweeten the deal further. You get 1 year Office 365 live included, 60 world minutes of Skype outgoing calls per month (to a number of countries, including mobile numbers for some destinations), and 1 TB of One Drive storage. Available from Amazon and ships to Singapore free under the free shipping Singapore for carts above $125.

I bought it for the free office, 1TB cloud storage, and monthly 60 minutes of Skype!
