The HP Stream 8 is available just in black and this is real let down for those looking to customize their tablet. By the looks of it, this seems to be a pretty decent deal. Here’s what an owner has been saying about its performance.
I received it three days ago and have been playing with it. I am impressed by how responsive this tablet is to various tasks, web browsing, app downloading, opening office documents etc etc. The gestures are somewhat different than on an iPad but are pretty easy to get used to; similarly setting and fine tuning take some getting used to as well but nothing major or substantial. The OS itself seems to have been designed quite well. On this tablet one can switch between the Metro and the classic Windows interface with ease.
