I need to figure out how the store credit works.

 

Here is the link to the deal.

My first post on this side of the room... Hi guys!

 

I started a thread down at HSS requesting for a review on the HP Stream 7. Thanks to Joe_Miner for reminding me that this site exists.

 

The unboxing (thank you Dave) revealed some disturbing issues with the packaging. I might be nitpicking but the accessories rattling about, enough so that the charger apparently got ejected out of its plastic bag, does not inspire confidence about the product. I would've expected more from HP.

 

BUT.. before you guys flog me to death, I do understand that this is an entry-level tablet and that Microsoft has, it seems, subsidized heavily on this deal for them to get more market traction in an otherwise Android-dominated market share (7" tablets in particular). Even without the additional discounts, I really think it's already a great deal at $79. The freebies alone pretty much covers the cost of the whole purchase.

 

Before I commit, I'd really want to hear how it performs in actual use. Haven't used a Windows 8.1 tablet ever, I don't know if 1GB RAM is enough. I'm so used to Android tablets coming in with 2 or even 3GB to make them work smoothly.

 

Looking forward to a more detailed hands-on review.

Thanks John and OJ.  Look for a podcast tonight, Feb 11, 2015, at around 9:30E.  I'll be talking with John W. and Rick Mansfield about small tablets.  John has the Stream 8 LTE and Rick has a great review of the Encore 2 Write.  http://surfacegeeks.net/toshiba-encore-2-write-review.html

 

Should be fun!
