  • The HP Stream 11 is a $200 Windows laptop that's built to compete with Chromebooks on features and price. It does pretty well on its own, but Microsoft sweetens the deal with free OneDrive storage and Office 365 Personal for a year.

  • There's a war going on between Microsoft and Google, and because of that shoppers will ultimately win. But is the HP Stream 11 a winner? In many ways, yes. This ultraportable is more versatile than a Chromebook, and I like the comfortable keyboard and loud speakers. And while the playful design isn't for everyone, it will definitely stand out in a crowd.

  • At $200, the Stream 11 is a good deal, especially compared to pricier Chromebooks, but beware that it comes with many of the same trade-offs as other budget laptops, including a low-quality display and slow boot-up time.
