Typically retailing at £179, a Cyber Monday discount sees a full copy of Microsoft Office Home & Student (retails separately at £119.99) and a Jam portable bluetooth speaker (£9.99) thrown in for just £188.99.

Core specs include an Intel Celeron N4000 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of solid-state storage, along with dual speakers, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, a basic webcam, a 3.5mm headphone jack, HDMI, a USB-C port and three USB 3.0 ports. The battery is said to last up to 13 hours, and though the storage allocation is rather meagre, microSD support does let you expand this.

Rather than Windows 10 Home this laptop runs Windows 10 S, which is primed for cheaper systems and education-oriented PCs. It is more streamlined and runs much faster than full-fat Windows, allowing the machine to also boot much more quickly, but a key difference is it will run only applications available in the Windows Store.

Since it is possible to get Microsoft Word for free, you might prefer to buy only the HP Stream 11 itself, which we've seen as low as £139 for Cyber Monday. Check out our live price comparison below:
