Just ahead of the festive season when demand usually shoots up, HP has come up with its new range of notebooks and tablets. The company today launched a new range of Windows 8.1-poweerd notebooks and tablets, including the HP Stream 11.6 laptop for $200 or Rs. 12,000.
HP, which is struggling to sell notebooks computers, has unveiled two low-cost notebooks computers onto market. The Stream 11.6 and Stream 13.3 boast Intel Celeron processors, fanless designs and 32GB of native storage.
With prices starting at $200 or Rs. 12,000, these new branded Windows 8.1 notebook computers should give tough competition to an average Chromebook, at least in terms of pricing and spec sheet.
The 13.3-inch Stream notebook offers a little better display (720p), also includes a 4G connectivity and 200MB of data per month. Both laptops come with a 1-year subscription of Microsoft Office 365 Personal which includes 1TB of OneDrive online storage, and a $25 gift card in the box to uses to buy apps or games from the Windows Store.
HP says that the 11.6-inch Stream will offer 8 hours of media playback, while the 13.3-inch model will last for 7 hours under the same conditions.
Not just new laptops, the company also unveiled two new HP Stream tablets. Both the HP Stream 7 and HP Stream 8 run on Windows 8.1, though only the 8-inch model comes with the option of a 4G data package, offering 200MB of free data per month.
The Stream 7 will be priced at $99.99 or Rs. 6,000, while the Stream 8 costs $149.99 or Rs. 8,940.
