Back in the '90s, you could buy a bargain-brand Gateway or eMachines PC for about $400. They were everywhere. Everybody's grandma got in on the action. They were also, objectively, pretty crappy computers. That's more true now than ever. Why? Because now we have the $180 HP Stream Mini. That's why.
The $200 HP Stream is the bargain-basement laptop to beat. But what if you want a desktop instead? Take a peek at the new HP Stream Mini. At just over 2 inches tall, 1.6 pounds light, and a mere $180 out of your wallet, this tiny pastel blue nettop packs a surprising amount of value into the case.
