With the threat of low cost and impressive Chromebooks based on Google’s Chrome OS, Microsoft has partnered with HP to offer low cost Windows powered alternatives at a $200 (approx. AED 730) price tag. According to the data sheet found by Mobile Geaks, the laptop will be called the HP Stream 14 and will be based on AMD’s A4 Micro-6400T quad core APU with integrated Radeon R3 series GPU, 2GB RAM and 32/64GB of internal storage- possibly an SSD. The standard configuration will come with a 14-inch display with a 1366×768 resolution, however users will be able to opt for a faster AMD A10 APU with a 1080p screen.

It will also have an SDXC card slot along with USB and HDMI ports and the usual set of features such as WIFI, Bluetooth, webcam and Beats Audio speakers. The HP Stream 14 will run on Windows 8.1 and Microsoft will offer 100GB of OneDrive cloud storage for 2 years similar to what Google does with Chromebooks.
