HP Stream 11 - $199.99
The HP Stream 11 isn’t made for gamers and it’s not for business users either. Buy the HP Stream 11 if you need a barebones laptop to browse the internet, watch YouTube and occasionally create a document.
This low-cost laptop from HP comes with 4GB of RAM and a 1.6 GHz Intel Celeron processor inside. Its 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 screen won’t dazzle anyone, but it’s roomy enough that you shouldn’t have a hard time browsing the internet or watching a movie like you would on your smartphone.
The HP Stream 11 includes only the hardware you absolutely need. An SD card slot lets you boost the 32GB of storage the laptop has inside. A single USB Type-C port, one USB 2.0 port and an HDMI port connect to displays and mice. A VGA camera above the screen lets you video chat with friends.
An HP Stream 11 wouldn't normally qualify for Microsoft’s free Office 365 Personal offer, but HP includes it anyway. This means Word, Excel and PowerPoint are free for a year after you make your purchase.
The HP Stream 11 costs just $199.99.
