Need a compact, portable Windows 10 laptop for under $200? Well, you're in luck.

So what are you getting for the cash? Well, HP’s budget Windows laptop comes in a choice of vibrant blue or magenta finishes, and its slim, lightweight chassis weighs a super-portable 1.18kg. This is a laptop you can genuinely sling in a bag every day, or give to your kids without worrying about it weighing them, or you, down.

Thanks to Windows 10 Home, it's more versatile than a Chromebook, but it still works brilliantly with online apps via a browser. It's able to run more conventional Windows software if you’re sensible about your requirements – although the in-built 16GB of storage fills up quickly, so you’ll need to pair it with an external USB 3 hard drive or a large-capacity microSD card.

Performance from the Celeron processor and 2GB of RAM is unsurprisingly modest, but Windows 10 goes just fine, as long as you don't expect to run resource-hungry applications or weigh it down with too many browser tabs or concurrent programs. Battery life is decent, too.

For the money, the HP Stream 11 is a bargain.
