    After looking at the HP stream I feel like having an os like windows, that can handle off-line programs, is a better choice than chrome. What do you think?

    Looks like a great piece of hardware and the fact it's running Windows is another plus.

    Chrome OS never had a really huge following and was pretty limited on features and capabilities. I had that test unit CR-48 and tried to use it during my school days, but it just never had what I really wanted. I haven't looked at ChromeOS since.

    Asus is a better buy @ $20 more. It has 4G RAM and a 500G HD

    None at the moment as none are available yet. Till then, I see no reason to purchase anything new since Windows 8 is such a disaster for Microsoft.

    There is the Asus Transformer Book V... But MS and Google don't like the idea of an Android/Win machine

    That's a polite way to phrase it. ;)

    Most Android apps already run in Windows if you install Bluestacks on your PC.
