HP stream 200-010 review – HP Stream 200-010 Mini Desktop price tag is $215.97 comes with windows 8, dual display support, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB SSD, mouse and keyboard included. I recommend you to go with HP Stream 200-010 Mini Desktop when you plan to use it for a lot of browsing, email and some games. This specification is perfect to run but if you intend to upgrade to Windows 10 , I recommend to upgrade to 8GB for RAM and 128GB for SSD.

The processor is 1.47 GHz Celeron 2957U is dual core processor that have more power comparing to other cheap computer and have a great performance and value if we refer to cost and performance ratio.

HP Stream 200-010 Performance
This exceptional windows box performance is still above Chrome OS box. Octane score report is 12,057 while typical Chrome OS box is range between 11,000 – 12,000 i don’t see any problem opening 12 tabs on Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox. HP Stream 200-010 can run office 2013 (office 365) very well. However for power user running excel will need 4 GB memory (I recommend 8GB). Games like Half Life 2 and Portal are run good on this machine. I don’t play games a lot so i don’t try other games. OK this end my HP Stream 200-010 review, hope this will help you decide what best for your needs.
