Laptops don’t get much cheaper than this

Okay, so, I don’t know a ton about non-Apple computers, but what little I know tells me that today’s main Woot deal of HP Stream 11.6″ refurbished laptops for just $112 is a pretty good deal. These are not power machines; they’re not built for serious gaming or other heavy usage, but for a kid, or for an email/word processing/web-surfing machine? You’d be hard-pressed to find a comparable model at that price point.

These are slim and lightweight, with flash drives (read: no moving parts, so perfect for backpacks and not-so-gentle users), and a good choice when your computing needs are simple and your budget is small.

For comparison: Amazon carries the model with a Celeron processor (rather than this one, which has the arguably superior dual-core processor) available for $179. Although Woot’s offering is refurbished, it’s a slightly nicer build. Make of that what you will.

  1. For the record, the comparison model at Amazon is the same one, right down to the processor (you have to scroll past a ton of stuff before you find the info under Full Specifications). I agree: $112 is pretty darned cheap.
