HP India has announced a new portfolio of devices which includes the Stream 8 Windows tablet, the Slate 6 Voice Tab II Android slate, the Pavilion Mini Desktop and the Stream laptop. All of the new launches carry affordable price tags and some of them are already available for purchase.
The HP Stream 8 and Slate 6 Voice Tab II tablets have already been released in the country for Rs 16990 and Rs 15990, respectively. The Pavilion Mini Desktop is a new addition and it will go on sale for Rs 26990 and up. This release is basically a compact palm-sized PC which is capable of running desktop-class software.
The base model comes with a Pentium 3558U processor from Intel, a 500GB HDD and 4GB of RAM. Additionally, you’ll be able to upgrade it with a Core i3 chip and double the storage, but that’ll cost you quite a bit. For connectivity, you get DisplayPort and HDMI ports with Quad HD support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and also four USB sockets.
The HP Stream laptop is the highlight of today’s launch. The offering is one of the cheapest Windows-based notebooks on the market and it packs a good deal of features for just Rs 19990. What’s disappointing is that it’s a bit too costly in India as its retail tag in the US is just $199.99 which amounts to around Rs 12370 after conversion.
Here’s what the HP Stream 11 laptop has to offer in specs:
– Windows 8.1 64-bit
– 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 pixel LED Backlit display
– HP TrueVision HD Webcam
– 32GB flash storage, 2GB RAM
– Dual core Intel Celeron processor @ 2.58GHz
– Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, HSPA+, 3-in-1 card reader, USB 2.0/3.0
– Dual DTS Studio Sound backed speakers
Like the HP Stream 8 and Slate 6 Voice Tab II tablets, the Stream 11 laptop and Pavilion Mini Desktop should also be available through the company’s own online store in India.
