This laptop is meant to be a Chromebook alternative, hence the lack of storage. However, it has an SD card slot for additional storage.

A bit terrible?

When you consider Chromebooks with identical specs for the same / higher price get voted up on this site, it seems pretty decent.

I just ordered one to replace my old Samsung Chromebook. HP have free returns so I'll request a pickup and refund if it performans terribly.Just using it for Chrome anyway.

So why not just stick with a chromebook then? Performance at this price point point will be hugely better with ChromeOS rather than Win8 if your only using for Chrome

That might have been true 5 years ago. now... not so much. It very much depends on *which* Celeron. If it's a Haswell Celeron it's fine. If it's a Bay Trail Celeron, not so much. Celeron in and of itself is not bad. What do you expect to find in a budget machine other than the budget line of processors?

Not exactly true, since the performance bottleneck is based on network speed, compared to a fairly modern celeron. Throw in more storage (USB 3 speed), and you'll have a decent laptop with Win 8.1.

sorry that's simply just not true...I have nothing against Win8 as an OS (I spend my working life supporting Windows OS) but it is so much heavier than ChromeOS. I have both a Win8.1 and a Chromebook with near identical N2800 series Celeron's and they are like night and day performance wise. I also have a i5 HP 840 G1 Elitebook and unless I REALLY have to use that for a Windows only app I pick up my Chromebook everytime...

I'm not knocking the HP Stream laptops as for a budget Windows laptop they are a good option (I even work for HP :-) ) but for usage of just Chrome/Email and maybe light office use a Chromebook is still a far better option imo
