HP Stream 11.6” Laptop with 1.1GHz Dual-Core CPU (Refurbished A-Grade)
Lightweight and ultraportable, this HP Stream hops on the fastest available WiFi network, offering a speedy internet connection wherever you go. And unlike Chromebooks—the nearest alternative when it comes to size and portability—it offers the added benefit of Windows 10 Home, an operating system that’s user-friendly and compatible with a full range of traditional applications.
Stream shows, catch the latest movie trailers, or explore an online video game’s vivid fantasyland in crisp, clear detail. Saturated with about 1 million pixels, the display produces image quality similar to what you’d see on an HDTV with 720p HD resolution. Such sharpness and clarity also make the text on your favorite news and social-media sites clear and easy to read.
An OS for the Modern Machine
Windows 10 pairs the flexibility of a traditional computer operating system with the intuitive layout of a mobile OS. A fast new web browser, the media- and app-filled Windows Store, and Cortana personal assistant come pre-installed, working together to help you easily navigate to what you’d like to see or do.
Dual-Band WiFi: Play and Stream Without Lag
If you play a lot of data-intensive online games or stream online video for hours on end, dual-band WiFi ensures you can connect to the fastest available network. While most internet networks operate on the congested 2.4GHz band, dual-band WiFi also lets you connect to networks operating on the more modern 5GHz band, which provides more bandwidth for faster app downloads and smoother video streams.

When iconic company Hewlett-Packard was born in 1939, it was not in a gleaming laboratory or during a late-night study session at a prestigious university. It was in a 12’x18’ garage that contained only a workbench and a used drill press. University friends Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard sold audio equipment to Disney (which used them during Fantasia production) and became HP soon after. Their humble garage is now marked with a plaque bearing the title “Birthplace of Silicon Valley.”
HP’s innovations laid the groundwork for the Valley’s surge in technological advances. Between the creation of the first handheld computer, which connected to printers and cassette drives, and development of speedier 64-bit processing technology currently used by brands such as Apple and Microsoft, HP cemented itself as an architect of current tech trends including the tablet and smartphone. It’s a community-conscious company, too; HP has donated to charity since 1940 and offers free recycling for all electronics, regardless of brand, at Staples.
