In this HP Stream 14-ax000na laptop review we will analyze the main hardware aspects of this budget laptop and understand why it is a best seller in the UK this year
HP Stream 14-ax000na: Overview
HP is one of the biggest laptop manufacturers in the world. Not only they sell huge quantities, but they also have one of the most varied laptop model ranges. The HP Stream 14-ax000na is among them, and is also one of the best selling laptops currently in the UK.
But what makes the HP Stream series so successful? A combination of extremely appealing prices and an overall good performance for basic computing are among the key features of this laptop series, so let’s analyze it.
HP Stream 14-ax000na: Design and Display
The design of the HP Stream series is definitely eye catching. It is also highly portable, as its pretty thin and lightweight If you are looking for portability on a limited low budget, the HP Stream is certainly one of the best options available.
This specific version the HP Stream 14-ax000na has a 14 inch screen with HD resolution. However, there are other versions (see below) of the HP Stream with 11.6 inch screens.
HP Stream 14-ax000na: Hardware (CPU and RAM)
This HP Stream model is powered by Intel Celeron N3060 processor, which is a dual core processor with a base frequency of 1.60 GHz. Even if this processor is an entry level one, it behaves very well on Windows for most daily activities. That includes web browsing, using streaming services, working with text and spreadsheets.
The HP Stream 14-ax000na also comes with 4 GB RAM. I consider this amount the minimum to run Windows 10 fast and smoothly.
On a side note, this is definitely not a gaming laptop. Despite its hardware settings being pretty good for the most frequent usage on Windows 10, it certainly will not run games with heavy 3D graphics.
HP Stream Other Versions
As mentioned above, the HP Stream has some other versions worth considering. The HP Stream 14-ax002na is pretty similar to the 14ax000na in its hardware specs, but the 14-ax002na is purple. The HP Stream also has versions with an 11.6 inch screen that come in blue (11-y000na), white (11-y003na) and purple (11-y002na).
