Last month we heard HP was working on a dirt cheap 14" laptop but turns out it was too good to be true. Super Site for Windows writes HP was too optimistic when it set $199 as the base price for this thin and light laptop, the actual retail price will end up $100 more expensive than anticipated.
For this price you get a Windows 8.1 laptop with a 14" WLED-backlit screen with 1366 x 768 pixels, AMD's A4 Micro-6400T Quad-Core APU with Radeon R3 integrated graphics, 2GB DDR3 memory and 32GB internal flash memory.
Still, if you had your hopes riding on an a thin and light laptop for just $200—and you should have, given that Mr. Turner explicitly said it was coming—this is a bit of a disappointment. (In addition to the $199 HP Stream, Mr. Turner also highlighted a number of PCs that cost $249.99, including the 15-inch Acer Aspire ES1—which I recently purchased on sale—and an 11.6-inch Toshiba.)
