    Microsoft's first Chromebook killer is a $200 HP laptop | The Verge

    Microsoft announced that it would be working with its partners to release ultra-low-cost Windows laptops just over a month ago, and now thanks to a leak from MobileGeeks, it looks like HP will release one of the first of these ultra-low-cost computers. The HP Stream 14 is a 14-inch, Windows 8.1 computer that is expected to sell for a paltry $199.

    The Stream 14 has an AMD processor, 1366 x 768 pixel display, 2GB of RAM, 32 or 64GB of internal storage, and a slot for an SD card. If you ignore the Windows stickers that are surely going to be located on the palm rests of the Stream 14, you'd be hard-pressed to tell it apart from HP's Chromebook 14, a popular 14-inch Chromebook released late last year.

    Specs seem decent, but seeing as these (or at least this model) are going to use an AMD CPU, I don't think they will be able to compete with the Haswell-based Intel CPUs in the Chromebooks when it comes to battery life. Look pretty similar in terms of hardware otherwise.
