Is it a stretch to consider this for very light photoshop/lightroom photo editing on-to-go? Disappointed But Relieved Face
With 4GB RAM and an Atom CPU you'd be crazy to try to do this with this thing, yes.

Yes, one might save 10% with gift cards but....

- if you ever have to return, you'll get a gift card back
- you'll lose any credit card insurance or double warranty protection
- you lose any extra credit card points/money

Getting that extra 10% may come at a cost and extra risk.

In a previous Microsoft Store laptop thread someone said they used Microsoft Gift Cards purchased from Costco, which are going for $44.99 for $50 gift card.

BestBuy is selling this same model at $430

https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/hp ... s/13847179

Has anyone tried successfully to price match at BestBuy to get a 10% discount on the price difference between $430 and $200 i.e. saving extra $23 on the MS sale price of $200 resulting in paying only $177 ?

4x44.99= 179.96 ($50 gift cards)
1x22.99= 22.99 ($25 gift card)
202.95 total cost for $225 gift cards

Costco $50 Xbox Live gift card for $44.99
Costco $25 Xbox Live gift card for $22.99
Can u use those xbox ms cards instore as well or only online... I have old ms gift cards from trading in video games back then

Ouch!
You mean in Win S mode, bios upgrades aren't available? And other driver upgrades?

That's another big negative for leaving it in S-mode. HP didn't think of that?

This is a detailed review of the HP Stream 14 with N4000, 4GB ram and 64GB ram. But the screen is still 720p (1366x768) in the 2018 model. It is model 14-cb160 which is very close to the model 14-cb161ms in this thread.

BB doesn't do 10 % difference anymore.. Too bad this is online only better if its also available for ISPU

Would a student be able to get an extra 10% on this "laptop" ?

Anyone else's order still sitting in Pending Status? I ordered mine yesterday afternoon 2:37 Pacific time, and it is still Pending. I am concerned as some folks have already received theirs!

Got one for my son. He can use it and I don't have to worry about him breaking something expensive.

At the UPDATES section of the review in Post#147 of this thread, it points to this video to update BIOS even without Windows. Thus you can still keep Windows 10 S mode and update the BIOS.
-Was able to update the BIOS from F.02 to F.11 w/o reinstalling Windows. Search YT for "How to Restore the BIOS with a Recovery Flash Drive on HP Notebooks" 01:43 length video.

I ordered 40 hours back and mine is being delivered today . I’m in BC . Overnight shipping from Ontario is impressive and I did not pay express shipping . Crossing my fingers everything goes well and I have my laptop before end of day .

Me three. Boggles my mind that people who ordered later than us have already received theirs. And it's not like it's a stock issue either as it's not even OOS.
