HP Stream is all about leveraging the benefits of the cloud

If you’re a techie, the chances of you storing your music, photos, documents, and other materials on the cloud tends to be quite high. But depending on how much storage you use on the cloud, it can get quite pricy too.

But now with HP’s new Stream notebook PC, you’ll be able to leverage the benefits of the cloud without having to fork out a ton of cash for cloud services. Why? Because HP’s giving you some value-added services for free if you purchase its new HP Stream laptop.

You’ll get free cloud storage for instant access and sharing of content with 1TB of Microsoft OneDrive for a year, in addition to Office 365 Personal for free for one year. It might sound too good to be true but that’s the deal it’s offering you.

According to HP Singapore and Malaysia printing and personal systems general manager, Serena Yong, the company decided to include these options as part of the package as today’s consumers demand mobile products that fit their personal style and allow them to work and play where ever they are.

As for the details of the HP Stream itself, it is a thin and light Windows product that boasts a HD display. You have a choice between the 11.6in unit, which comes with just the HD display, or the 13.3in that has the HD optional touch display.

Some of its other features also include a fanless design with high efficiency Intel Celeron processor and 32GB of eMMC flash memory.  

The HP Stream will be available in a choice of two stunning colour options – Horizon Blue and Orchid Magenta – but you’ll have to hold your horses, you can’t get it now. It is expected to be available in Singapore at the end of November, and prices will only be announced at a later date.
