The HP Stream 14-ax030nr 14-inch budget laptop has received positive reviews for its small, lightweight profile, pleasing design, its fast boot up speeds thanks to its eMMC storage and its decent handling of basic tasks, such as word processing, video streaming and photo viewing. Furthermore, its battery life is solid. Users were, however, critical of its little onboard storage of 64GB. Some also thought that both the touchpad and keyboard were average and others noted that the screen quality is not that great. The 4GB of RAM is also rather limiting for those looking for a machine that can multitask quite heavily.


HP’s Stream 14-ax030nr comes in a small, portable design that is light enough to be carried anywhere with you. Its battery life of around 10 hours means you will not need to carry around your power adaptor, making it ideal for college students. It comes with an Intel Celeron N3060 processor, and 4GB of RAM, meaning it is more suited to basic use such as word processing, video streaming and photo viewing. The 64GB eMMC flash storage does mean that it has fast boot up and application load times, and it does make the system feel more snappy, but 64GB is very small, and system files will take up most of the space. Users have pointed out that the keyboard is average, as well as the touchpad, with one reviewer noting that it is too sensitive. The 14-inch LED screen is 1366×768 is said to be quite dim, with many rating it as average at best. All-in-all, the HP Stream 14-ax030nr is eye-catching and very portable, but storage space is a problem, and it is suited mostly for basic use.
