    HP Rep clued me into the 64Gig Stream

    I have been looking forward to Black Friday for 5 months now and have been checking on Stream prices. I finally got the regular 32 gig from Amazon, but am going to return it for this one. Haven't gotten it yet, but know I'll love it for my needs. Mostly I check Facebook and do banking on it. I like to have an 11" laptop on my dining room table. I already have a great desktop to do everything else on. I've been working on a Dell 11" with only 2 Gigs of RAM and that wasn't going to fly for long. Dell tells me every 3 - 6 months I'll have to wipe it out so I can get the newest update for Windows. After doing it once and having to get all my passwords saved again, it was well worth $200 to double my RAM and memory. I know I'll be good now.

    HP Laptop

    I purchased this laptop to use for things like reading the paper and for work related projects ( student reviews, CE courses). We have Apple phones, and IPads. That being said I have to admit I had a difficult time learning how to use this laptop. I chose HP because it is cheaper than a Apple lap top but honestly I should have probably just spent the money for an Apple. I am getting better at figuring things out but it is frustrating. I like the size of the lap top and it is easy to carry around. The graphics are good and the colors are beautiful. I guess if you are used to HP products I would recommend it however if you aren’t I would hesitate to recommend it. Also I ordered a space grey and got a Snow White one?!!?? My son works for Google so he helped me with setting it up. If he hadn’t, I would have probably returned it.

    My husband and I were looking for a laptop as Newley weds needed somewhere to store our wedding pictures and videos. So we purchased this laptop, and the moment we took it out the box we fell in love with it! Beautiful white color design with a great soft touch keyboard. BUT!!! This laptop freezes a lot, it’s super slow and at times the screen has so many glitches it looks like the screen is going black. Other than that, the laptop is fine.

    Nice laptop, Windows is a pain

    My 12 year old wanted a laptop for Christmas, and we got this one for a great price on Black Friday. He loves it, but Windows makes it a pain. From having to pay a small fee to allow him to install apps since he's underage (I can see requiring parents to approve of this, and the fee is only 50 cents, but still any fee is ridiculous), to having to fight with Edge to let us download and install Chrome, Windows is somewhat hampering the experience. Still, he's super excited to have it.

    I bought this computer for my daughter. She has classes online, it does the job but its very slow. It came with geek squad coverage for a year which is awesome! Its OK for a young kid, not much memory so you can't download much. I was looking into a Chromebook, however her classes aren't compatible with Chromebook. If you have more money to spend, I would look at something else.

    I saw this on an Open Box Sale email from Best Buy. Since my little HP Mini had just crashed, I went in and the sales tech was excellent! He found one almost exactly like the one in my email, explained (very patiently!) Office 365 for me, told me the best way to transfer documents from my Mini to my new laptop, and made sure I understood the differences between the old and the new. Great machine, great sales person!

    Amazing Laptop That's Fast With Windows or Linux!

    I absolutely love this laptop; It's pretty fast With the pre-installed Windows 10 S os, but is even better in terms of performance with Linux installed. (I used Ubuntu 19.04) Just remember it comes with Windows 10 S, put emphasis on the S part. You can only install apps from the Windows Store. It does com with a one year license to Microsoft Office 365, which is a killer deal.

    It's only been about 2 mos. but so far, I'm liking this little machine. Lightweight but feels sturdy, decent battery life, and good storage space for a netbook. Noticeably slows down on the web with multiple tabs open, so use those sparingly. Heats up pretty quickly on the lap so be sure to get a portable lap desk or something similar.

    I liked the look of this and the price but I had to return it. It just wasn’t as responsive as I was hoping. No fault of the laptop, I should have researched more. Nothing wrong with it to surf the web and read emails but I wanted something more powerful so I returned it for a Lenovo Thinkpad that I love! I had no issues with it and would still recommend it for a new laptop user.

    Pretty Basic Laptop, good for School

    We are on our 2nd version of this laptop after the first one died 3 months after we purchased it with some sort of motherboard failure. As long as you are not expecting to do much more than connect to the internet and access Google Drive to do school work this will get the job done. This is a very basic cheap laptop.

    The laptop is okay for somebody who is in school but I only gave it three stars because it freezes up sometimes which can be an inconvenience while you're doing something on blackboard for school. I have to use my other laptop for certain things so I can avoid having to start over on assignments. Other than that it is cool for basic personal use.

    I unfortunately had to return this laptop for various reasons: the WiFi connectivity sucked as well as the screen glitched every so often. I kept getting kicked off the WiFi from Starbucks to my home network. As for the screen, it glitches out on me twice within the first week of purchase.

    Great Computer for Youth

    This is an excellent computer for beginners/pre-teens for its value. Teaching computer basics and using game Apps. You can do much more with it, but it really depends on what you want to give a pre-teen to start with. For the price, it exceeds the expectation.

    We needed a low budget computer for email and light web browsing - this perfectly fit the bill. It was inexpensive, was a snap to start up and continues to be strong. Granted, it could not be used for gaming or streaming, but, we have other computers for that . . .

    I was looking for an inexpensive computer to use as a controller for my CNC. I wasn't expecting much from a low-end model, but this laptop with a celeron processor and emmc memory starts and runs my cotroller software faster the i5 computer it was replacing.

    I recently purchased this laptop for my kids to use. I am impressed with the good speed for such a bargain laptop. The SSD and the ram it does have make it snappy for what they will be using it for, and the locked down secure version of windows 10 does a great job as well.

    Ridiculously Slow

    Idk how this laptop has an average of 4 stars, it sucks. It’s so slow! I have virus protection and high speed internet and it still skips and freezes while watching Hulu or Netflix. The screen also flashes and spazzes out every now and then.

    Very Light weight & virus protection

    Very portable due to light weight. I'm confused by the questionable issue of adding McAfee virus protection or not. Windows Defender comes with the laptop, but it seems if I add additional protection that I cannot return to use the Window Defender.

    I wanted a simple laptop that I could write on. No frills no thrills. This is perfect. I can access the internet to check email and open word applications to compose a letter. Nice long battery and compact size was a plus.
