HP Stream 11 Review: Features.
This laptop could be a great choice for students who just want something fun and small to bring to school.. However, the Stream doesn't look professional enough to bring to a meeting with corporate investors.
At just 2.5 pounds and 11.8 x 8.1 x 0.7 inches, the updated Stream 11 is slightly lighter and thinner than its predecessor, the 2014 Stream 11 (12 x 8.1 x 0.78 inches, 2.74 pounds).
You will find a USB 2.0 port, and a combination audio and mic jack on the left side. On the right side is the charging port, an LED battery indicator, a microSD card slot, a USB 3.0 port and a full-size HDMI for plugging the laptop into your HDTV.
The HP Stream 11's comes with 11.6-inch, 1366 x 768 screen. The screens on both the Stream 11 and the Lenovo Ideapad 100S-14 have the same total brightness average (188 nits).
The Stream's screen can reproduce 77.5 percent of the sRGB gamut, as opposed to the measly 63.1 percent that the Samsung Chromebook 3 managed. Both 14-inch laptops' color ranges were much higher than those on these smaller screens, with the Lenovo reproducing 83.5 percent of the gamut and the Dell displaying 81.4 percent.
The dual speakers actually sound dynamic and full, even though they're located at the bottom front of the device. These speakers definitely sound more intense than the ones on the Samsung Chromebook 3. What really puts HP's audio output above the rest is its inclusion of the DTS Studio Sound dashboard, which lets you customize your audio preferences by sound type.
Keyboard and Touchpad
The HP Stream 11 has a solid keyboard with large, well-spaced keys and plenty of snappy feedback. However, the sharp front lip of the laptop really mars the typing experience by painfully scraping your wrists while you attempt to hit the keys. The HP Stream 11's 3.6 x 2.1-inch touchpad was responsive and pleasant to use.
Performance and Graphics
The HP Stream 11 offers solid performance for the price. Powered by a 1.6-GHz Intel Celeron N3060 processor, Intel Graphics 400, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of eMMc flash storage, the Stream 11 is snappy when handling basic computing tasks.
The HP Stream 11 has an integrated Intel HD Graphics 400 GPU, which means it's more geared toward Candy Crush Soda Saga than a heavy-duty game such as Overwatch. We put the Stream 11 through its paces on the 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited benchmark, where it scored 16,230. That's significantly higher than the score from the Lenovo Ideapad 100S-14 (13,568).
When the Stream 11 ran our battery test (continuous web surfing over Wi-Fi ), the laptop lasted 8 hours and 23 minutes, which is respectable but shorter than the runtimes of its competitors. Both the Samsung Chromebook 3 (9:44) and the Dell Inspiron 14 3000 (9:01) lasted longer.
