Full version of Windows on a smaller device

from Notebookcheck

Users in the market for a Windows tablet with outstanding battery life but with a modest budget should take a look at the HP Stream 7. If other qualities matter as well, the decision might be more difficult: the camera modules, for example, are mediocre at best and although the display is bright, the color accuracy leaves to be desired. The grainy panel is prone to finger prints as well and simply doesn't look very upscale...

Users in the market for a Windows tablet with outstanding battery life but with a modest budget should take a look at the HP Stream 7. If other qualities matter as well, the decision might be more difficult: the camera modules, for example, are mediocre at best and although the display is bright, the color accuracy leaves to be desired. The grainy panel is prone to finger prints as well and simply doesn't look very upscale.

While the HP Stream 7 is about as fast as the competition, we did encounter occasional stutters and lag. We appreciate the low power consumption and the well-controlled temperatures. Thanks to a textured back, the tablet is easy to hold as well. Speaking of the back: although the panel is removable, the battery is glued into place and can't be swapped out.

When looking at inexpensive tablets, it's important to decide which features are important and which aren't. There is no question that compromises are necessary in this class to keep the price low. The HP Stream 7 appeals with a great form factor and very affordable price; users who don't need the utmost in performance or are maybe looking at a secondary device, should be quite happy with it.

Ultimately, the question remains if Windows 8.1 really makes sense on a tablet this small. The answer is entirely up to the user: those who are familiar with a Windows PC and would like a tablet that offers a plethora of adjustment options and settings, might primarily consider a Windows tablet. Users who are not familiar with Windows 8.1 yet but would like a tablet that's easy to operate, might be better served with an Android-based system, iOS, or a device based on a free operating system.
