Looking for a great laptop at an even better price? The HP 14 Stream laptop is down from its regular price of $389 to just $350 at QVC—that’s a savings of $39. Now’s the perfect time to replace your tired laptop or grab that gift for someone you love.

To sweeten the already sweet deal, the retailer is throwing in one-year subscriptions for Microsoft Office 365 (a $120 value), HP SmartFriend Complete for over-the-phone tech support (a $180 value), and HP Accidental Damage Protection (a $70 value)—which protects against drops, spills and other everyday mishaps. Total that up, and you’re getting $370 of free value, added on. This is a special QVC bundle that significantly increases the impact of this sale.

And in true QVC fashion, the retailer gives you the option to do the deal in three no-interest EasyPay monthly installments of just $117. If you want to take advantage of this sale but don’t want to plunk down $350 at once, this is the way to go.

Brilliant build

While the HP 14 Stream laptop may not have the power or speed of the pricey Apple MacBook Air, it’s an impressive little beast with significant ease-of-use, Windows 10 Home S operating system and 14-inch HD display. Yes, it’s made of plastic, but that makes it a great alternative for when your main laptop is in the shop or you just want something you don’t have to worry too much about.

It features 4GB of memory paired with 64GB of on-board storage—but thanks to the included Microsoft Office 365 subscription, it comes with an additional 1TB of cloud storage. Read: You won’t have to worry about running out of storage anytime soon.

This laptop features two USB 3.1 ports, one USB 2.0 port, HDMI, an SD card reader and a headphone jack. You’re getting a lot of bang for the buck here.

Windows Stream vs Google Chromebook

The HP 14 Stream has an appropriate name—it’s designed to ‘stream’ videos, apps and music from the web, so its closest comparison is the Google Chromebook—which has a similar function. However, the HP 14 Stream gets a little bit more credit in our book because it comes with a full operating system with Windows 10 Home S, instead of relying heavily on the internet and web-apps like the Chromebook.

While the HP 14 Stream is an internet laptop first and foremost, it’s still functional without it—you can download Windows 10 apps and get some good use out of it without an internet connection. You can’t really say the same thing about a Google Chromebook.

Bottom line

At $39 off, this HP 14 Stream laptop is a reliable machine for casual users. You’re not going to do any heavy video editing or graphic design with this guy. But for web surfing, the HP 14 Stream will serve you well—especially since it comes with Microsoft Office 365 and access to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, OneDrive, Skype and much more.

It comes in three colors too: Royal Blue, Rose Pink and Black.
