Those in the market for an affordable portable are often steered towards various Chromebooks, and for good reason.

As the Acer Chromebook 14 I reviewed a few months back demonstrates, there s no shortage of high-quality, low-cost Windows PC competitors to choose from.

HP is looking to level the playing field in time for the back-to-school season with a refreshed version of its entry-level Windows 10 notebook, affectionately dubbed the Stream.

Replacing the existing 13.3-inch Stream is a slightly larger 14-inch model 1,366 x 768 resolution display which includes a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Celeron N3060 processor alongside 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal flash storage expandable via card slot .

You also get 2x2 802.11ac Wi-Fi and better battery life – HP says the system is good for up to 10 hours and 45 minutes of use on a single charge but expect that to vary a bit depending on usage.

It measures just 17.9mm at its thinnest point and tips the scales at 3.18 pounds.
