Good deal for this. An alternative to the usual Asus T100 convertibles.

how? they cost £100 more and are completely different products.

celeron put me off though

Would this be able to run football manager 2015 my pc packed in a few month ago and craving a game lol

It only has a 32GB hard drive so this is not a machine designed for local storage or performance at a local level. It's Microsoft's poor attempt at emulating the Chromebook but despite the 1TB of free cloud space you get with this I found after uploading movies they wouldn't stream from OneDrive so in order to watch them and cast them to TV I had to download them again which is a laughable failure. It has the same processor as many 2GB RAM Chromebooks and I use mine so rarely will probably end up wiping it and installing Chrome OS over it. For cloud based computing Msoft is light years behind Google. If you want to play games on your hard drive then choose a Windows machine with 500MB+ of space. If you like living in the cloud then take a Chromebook over this any day. It's also misleading to market it as having a 32GB hard drive as quite some part of that is taken up by the Windows OS so you'll end up with something more like 25GB.
I put a 64GB SDXC card in mine to act as a 2nd drive and it works to an extent. Portable programs work well on it but installing full programs fails as the machine doesn't recognize the card as part of the OS so will always default to installing to C drive, and if you force it to install on the card (D: drive or whatever) it just ends up a mess and confuses the registry. I paid close to £200 for mine when they were first released in the hope it would operate much like the Chromebook allowing for easy streaming of music, movies etc but it failed to impress. Processor wise there's no problem with this model of Celeron. It is a nifty little machine and there was nothing I put on the hard drive that it didn't handle with ease and surfing is fast but local storage is so limited that you can only fit a few programs on it before you end up struggling for space left to download anything. Closer to the £100 mark would be a more fitting price range for this.

I'm not quite sure why you believe installing programs on a second drive will mess up the registry? I've been doing that for years on various windows machines.

ps great little machine. Voted hot

Jeez, can't be bothered to read all that. For what we need it for its perfect and an amazing bargain at £149.99 plus a £10 voucher (which we bought a belkin sleeve with) It's a smart looking laptop and does everything we need it for, which isn't much!

It's not a belief, it's a statement of fact applied to this notebook. It's designed for cloud computing. It doesn't and can't with its restricted resources recognize the SDXC card as anything other than an external storage drive. It doesn't recognize it as part of the OS so it expects all programs to be on the same drive as the services they use in C://....system32/... It doesn't "remember" that the program's executable and dll's, ini's etc are on D: drive so I'm sure you can imagine the problems that causes when attempted.
You're right, it is a great little machine. It looks good, the audio is really good for its size, it browses fast enough and it works well with NOW TV for streaming. It's good that its fanless and quiet but that's at the cost of getting really hot if it's not got plenty of ventilation. Nice machine, very poor integration of cloud and local drives and for the same price on ebuyer you can pick up laptops and desktops with 500GB drives in them that will hold and stream your movies with ease and do a bit of gaming if that's your thing. Whether it's other Windows based computers or Chromebooks you look at there is much better on offer than this. My Android phone streams whatever I tell it to whether its locally stored or in the cloud. Why can't a x64 Windows 8.1 laptop from a Microsoft server? It was a great idea to try to match the Chromebook OS only based around a Windows browser. This was the wrong product to release as that rival.

The reviews of these are great. And this is a great price. Do pic world do price matching. I have a few vouchers for them?

I am torn between this and a 13inch chromebook. I am a teacher and only use 1 program that needs windows which would be the only advantage of this over the Chrome book

Hmm: Chromebook vs. Windows time ...
We have and love the pretty similar Asus X205 and a Chromebook as well.

The strength of the Asus/HP machines is the whole Windows system they connect into - Office and all the programs we've been using for ages. Mine has XBMC, Winamp and PhotoMechanic for example. What's not good is the age it takes to set up Windows (140 updates) and the difficulty in cloning the result.

Office 365 Home and OneDrive work fine for me and a 64GB SDXC card takes the strain. Several ppl run 128GB SDXC cards on the Asus.

I love that chromebooks are ready when you switch them on and just manage themselves.

Arguments about limited internal storage miss the point - I think the HP/Asus work best as an ultramobile machine for travel/school/uni lectures/holidays with a gruntier machine with local storage at home. If you want lots of films to view while on holiday, take along an external 2.5 1TB drive.

The battery life of these things is bonkers - mine has done heavy initial setup and 9 hrs later still reports 35% left.

I do wish the Asus had faster flash storage though, but at 980g and £180 for a full Windows laptop, I'll forgive it.

reading above (other) comments - go for chromebook; you wont be disappointed then (since a chromebook doesnt do much). This laptop is selling itself as a Windows machine - and for that, it may be a disappointment. You being a teacher isnt relevant (but nice). The device has to accomodate *you* and not the other way around :-)

Really want one of these! I saw the 13' Version today and was debating this size or that one...

Odd, as I have iTunes installed and running off of a 64GB SDXC card on my Asus T100. It's been running off the card for months now. Never causes me any problems...

Just noticed that the 11' Has a HDMI Port as well where as the 13' doesn't, Also worth noting you get a £20 Microsoft Gift Card in the Box too apparently. Reserved one and going for the 11' Inch tomorrow! Many Thanks OP Hot!

y oh y on payday lol

Stupid question, but I can get a laptop that has a Athlon X2 for free. How does this Intel N2840 compare to this? I cannot find any comparisons. Thanks

Your comment made me lol, if you need chrome features that much install chrome. Although media sharing has been in windows since windows 95...

I expect totally inaccurate posts about 'rivals' products from apple fans, but saying a full desktop os isn't as good as chrome os is just laughable.

If your seriously concerned that windows cannot deal with external storage well you'll be really upset if you look into it and realise its google's os that struggles with external storage, windows 8 is the easiest thing in the world, its the same as the xbox, just set the default storage and it will fill it up, you don't even have to change the path when installing anything.

And finally services are not all stored in system32 folder and never have been, I am concerned you are giving advice on products, more concerned people may listen to you!

This will be a better machine, however nothing beats free!

Ive been tempted by one of these, I just wish they had more subtle colours !!!

Great machine, really happy when I got it a couple of months ago. Windows 8.1 leaves a lot to be desired though - drove me completely to distraction. Perhaps it's great on a tablet but not on a non-touchscreen laptop for me anyway. Runs Linux well thankfully

Not a bad machine - decent battery life and it's amazingly light - but it's slow if you want to multitask and if you need to store anything on it that 32gb eMMC becomes a killer. After Windows etc, how much free space do you actually have? 14gb? You'd need a portable external HDD to go with this.

I think people would be better off going for the Lenovo S20 (£129 on here recently). Same processor / ram but at least that allows you to swap in a larger capacity SSD than 32gb, which you can't do on the Stream 11.

Picard123 Reviews I read were fab and for what I want it for its perfect. Not bothered about the nitty gritty people have spoken about with storage etc... this does exactly what I need it for as I have a much better laptop for work which is an all singing all dancing piece of kit!

What do people think about selling my Linx 10 and buying this? My Linx is ok, but I find it frustrating doing anything in Office with the tablet (particularly selecting text and cut/paste) and a lot of DOS box games won't run because they want to see a proper keyboard. Plus I can't stand Touch IE and so end up using the desktop version of firefox anyway. I could get a keyboard for the Linx but maybe the stream would be a better choice. It looks slightly faster in the benchmarks, but apparently the ssd is quite slow...

If you can get the Lenovo S20 for £129, I'd recommend that and swap the HDD out for an SSD.

Bought one from Argos yesterday painfully slow. After windows updates and only having office installed I was left with around 7gb space.

Try to do disk clean up and after 20mins of CPU running at 100% I gave up.

Also slightly **** off with the fact it's a returned item I was expecting new. So going back for a refund today.

Voted hot. But a horrible laptop, with a cheap plastic feel and a trackpad that doesn't work half the time. Don't get me started on the screen
