The newest entry in the cheap laptop category is a Windows based laptop that will reportedly sell for $200 or so. I’m all for inexpensive but functional hardware. However, my experience with cheap Windows machines has not been particularly positive. Chromebooks can get away with having low end hardware because they are running an OS designed to do little more than support the Chrome browser. Windows, as far as I know, was not designed with this minimalism in mind, and it would seem ill suited to perform as well as Chrome on this type of machine. Does anyone have any idea how well these Stream laptops stack up against a Chromebook?
