HP Stream 11 x360, portable touch screen laptop that turns into an 11-inch tablet
The HP Stream 11 x460 is a notebook with a rotating screen with a size of 11.6 inches. This device is capable of rotating its panel 360 degrees for use in tablet form, or place it in store mode to display more comfortably multimedia content. Inside we find Windows 8.1 operating system powered by an Intel Celeron chip, 32 GB of flash memory and the ability to integrate a 3G module. In addition, this configuration will support 3G with HP DataPass, own service from the company that will allow us to connect to mobile networks free for two years (200 MB per month). The HP Stream 11 x360 comes next November at a price of 300 euros for the WiFi version and $350 for the 3G version. More details below.
Currently, the devices that are still “alive” in the PC market are convertibles. These devices combine the functions of a laptop and tablet to allow us to enjoy the world’s best productivity and entertainment. The HP Stream 11 x360 uses a touch screen that folds 360 degrees for use as a tablet. We can also play with other intermediate positions to place it on a table and watch movies or videos. This touch panel is committed to a standard resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels, sufficient to achieve an acceptable level of detail, but really lacks pure HD.
To enhance the Windows 8.1 operating system, it comes with a N2840 Intel Celeron dual-core processor and power via 2.16 GHz per core. This chip is combined with 2GB of RAM. Although the chip is sufficient, we can find some limitation in the performance of this model due to its RAM. To keep our personal files, the Stream 11 x360 has available eMMC flash memory format of 32 GB. With this space available we must subtract about half the space occupied by Windows. To this we can add 1TB of free space via OneDrive online storage for one year. We can also enhance the space through SD memory.
Within this model there are connections that highlight various aspects. First, we have an Ethernet port, which is unusual in this type of reduced form model. This is another opportunity to connect to the network. It also includes a full-sized HDMI port, so you do not have to buy a specific cable to the contents of the computer on the TV. Another advantage of this device is the fact that it incorporates USB 3.0 port, plus two USB 2.0.
And all topped with a 3G module in the most advanced option. This feature makes it a very interesting to take on trips, and which also has a measured weight of 1.5 kg and a thickness of just 1.95 inches. Moreover, users who bet on 3G settings can take advantage of HP DataPass service. It is a service from HP that will give us 200 MB of free data per month for two years. The HP Stream 11 x360 is set to hit the market next November. Its price is around $300 euros in the WiFi version and $350 euros in the version that also includes 3G.
