One of the best-selling and well-received tablets this holiday season was the HP Stream 7 Tablet. Running for $99, the tablet earned high reviews from owners who were looking for a low cost, but quality tablet running full Windows.
Now, Microsoft has the Windows tablet on sale for just $79 – a $20 discount. This is not the first time this tablet dropped that much, as Microsoft had it on sale during the Christmas shopping period for the same price.
The HP Stream 7 is an enormous bargain for just $79. For one, it includes Office 365 Personal (with 60 minutes of Skype per month), which itself is valued at $69, making the tablet a $10 add-on. Microsoft is also tossing in a free $25 Windows Store Gift card, so now they are paying you for this tablet.
Other features include:
- 7-inch HD IPS touchscreen 800x1280
- Intel Atom Z3735G quad core 1.33 GHz with Burst Technology up to 1.83 GHz
- 1GB memory/32GB SSD
- microSD expansion
- 3000mAh lithium-ion 11.1Wh (up to 8 hours)
- 2MP back-facing camera, 0.3MP front-facing camera
- WiFi 802.11b/g/n (Miracast enabled)
- 0.78 lbs (353.8 g)
For $79, those are some crazy reliable specifications. Finally, being a 'Signature Edition' tablet means this thing is optimized by Microsoft for Windows with no bloatware or added software—just pure Windows, baby. It seems silly to pass this deal up if you are looking for something to occupy the kids in the car, need a tablet for the couch, or just something to tuck in your bag.
Head to the Microsoft Store and add to cart (or visit your local store if you live near one). No word on how long this price drop will last, so do not wait too long. Head into our Stream 7 Forums if you have questions!
