The HP Stream 7 is already one of the most affordable Windows tablets available, with a list price of $100. But right now you can save $20 — the Microsoft Store is selling the tablet for $80.

That price gets you a 7 inch tablet with a 1280 x 800 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and an Intel atom Z3735G quad-core Bay Trail processor. It also includes a 1-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 Personal, which normally sells for $70. So it’s kind of laying paying $70 for Office and $10 for a tablet… kind of.

  1. We’re seeing significant price drops from all the manufacturers, and I for one hope it’s an indication of inventory purging, prior to the release of Cherry Trail-Windows 10 goodies.

    1. You’ll notice it’s the same Atom CPU. Intel has been subsidizing manufacturers who uses that chip. Once they get some marketshare, I expect prices will start shooting up, but I hope to see dramatic performance increase to go with it.

      1. There wont be any shooting up this year, nor anytime soon. Intel’s CFO, Stacy Smith, said that revenue is at it’s highest ever in company history, in large due to the data center side of the business. In the same c|net interview, he mentions the mobile division “is on track to profitability” after a $4.2 billion loss for 2014, but he clearly states they don’t expect it to be profitable for 2015 either, which means the subsidies scheme is here to stay. The only threat to the subsidies would have been investors bitching about it, and running scared, especially after Warren Buffett sold his Intel shares with rumors about subsidies being the reason behind the drop.
        Well… doesn’t he look all kinds of stupid, now that Intel’s stock jumped 40%.

  2. The real deal is the 8″ Winbook TW801 at microcenter.com for $99.99 with 2GB RAM, micro USB/OTG & full size USB 3.0 port (yes USB 3.0), micro HDMI, and micro SD card slot, Windows 8.1 & one year of Office 365. Being able to connect to an external monitor or TV with HDMI, charge the battery, connect to USB devices, all at once – PRICELESS!

      1. The TW802 is $129.99 (newer model, actually a downgrade in the
        processor). In order to see/order the TW801 at $99.99 you must select a
        store location at the top of the their web site. Up until recently it
        was in store pick-up only. But now they have shipping options starting
        at $5.99. I believe the WinBook tablets are the only Windows tablets to
        included a full size USB, a micro USB for charging, and HDMI all at
        the same time. It is a steal at this price. Check out mine and others

        1. Thanks! That is pretty tempting. It definitely looks like a better deal than the HP.

  3. Not really interested but I clicked and saw a $25 Store App “gift” card offered as well. Didn’t click through to see the hidden price though, which may have changed now for all I know.

      1. Oops, fair warning: Amazon price doesn’t appear to include Office 365 Personal or the $25 gift card or the Skype minutes. Sorry.

  4. There’s a reason the price is so low. It can’t be upgraded to Windows 10 and has a 64-bit CPU, but too little RAM (1GB) to run a 64-bit version of Windows. Poor build quality, short battery life and no upgrade path = do not buy.

    1. Are you sure? What I saw was “Some editions are excluded: Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 8/8.1 Enterprise, and Windows RT/RT 8.1.” None of that seems to apply here.

    2. Do you have a source for that part about it not being upgradable to Windows 10?

      I believe that Joe Belfiore tweeted that it would, although things may change.

      In any case its only $80. Anyone expecting it to be anything more than a cheap, almost disposable, tablet may be disappointed.

      1. I bought one from Amazon for $99 and tried to upgrade it. It fails to upgrade because it has a compressed file system and only 32GB of storage. There’s some fine print on the Windows website about minimum free storage and ram requirements for Windows 10. Also, the fact that it has a 64-bit capable CPU is wasted since Windows won’t install 64-bit OS on anything with less than 2GB RAM.

        1. Here is a Twitter post by Joe Belfiore replying specifically to someone who asked about the Stream 7″.

          https://twitter.com/joebelfiore/status/559884544019427328

          Also regarding 32 bit. Nearly all the Atom tablets use 32bit Windows and 2GB RAM. Windows 10 is said to have the same requirements (so far) and the requirements are that 32bit has a minimum 1GB RAM requirement and 64 bit has a minimum 2GB requirement. Windows 10 will still have the 32bit version as far as I know so it doesn’t look like this practice will change. It is true that the Stream 7 has the minimum of minimum requirements, but that’s the point since it’s such a cheap device. Also I’d venture that most people aren’t going to try to install 64bit Windows on their tablets if it came with 32bit. The Stream 7 is really just meant to be used as-is even though people have been pushing it beyond what it was designed for.

          That’s the case for the WIMBoot as well. It uses that to save storage space. Apparently Windows 10 Preview does not yet support that upgrade path, but it should eventually. I can’t imagine Microsoft would abandon WIMBoot since it was made specifically so that Windows can run better on lower specced devices.

          https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_install/windows-10-preview-on-hp-stream-7/d9c55fdf-a92f-4715-8d11-3045afcff04b

          It also seems that someone was successful by installing from an ISO so it’s no longer using WIMBoot. There are still issues, but that proves it can be upgraded.

          https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Windows-Tablets/Stream-7-Windows-10-Technical-Preview-installation/td-p/4779474

          Obviously Windows 10 is still in preview so all this might change. I think it’s also good to keep in mind that this is a preview. Just because something won’t work right now it doesn’t mean it will never work.

  5. I think you intended to say HP stream 7 not HTC stream 7 in your list at the bottom
