Rumors are abuzz that the tech giant HP will soon be launching a Microsoft-partnered notebook ‘HP Stream 14’ which will have impressive specs and that too at a minimal price.
The rumored laptop will come with Windows 8.1. Others features include:
- a 14-inch 1366×768 pixel display,
- 2GB of RAM,
- a low-power AMD processor,
- 32 or 64GB of built-in storage,
- Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connecitivity,
- HDMI-out and an SDXC card slot
- USB ports
These specifications are very similar to most Chromebook available in the market today.
The HP Stream 14 will come at USD 199 price tag. The price, specifications and images of the new laptop have been listed by HP in its support pages.
Microsoft has last month announced its partnership with computer manufacturers in order to bring low-cost laptops with Windows Operating System to counter Google Chromebook offerings.
In the series, Microsoft had also announced that it will soon launch HP’s ‘Stream’ which will be a low-priced notebook, coming with a price tag of USD 199. However, the company had not provided any further details related to specs of the device.
It is noteworthy that it’s still unknown that by what time the HP Stream 14 will be available in the markets for customers’ use.
With the new inexpensive device, Microsoft is clear in its ambitions of targeting Chromebook and countering Google in the low-end PC segment.
