Yes, the HP Stream is a terrible laptop. Now that I’ve loaded Linux on it, it is at least usable. The HP Stream laptops that only come with 32GB of eMMC storage are pretty much useless with the Microsoft Windows operating system that they are sold with. That’s because Windows takes up almost all of the 32GB of space new out of the box. Then, when a major Windows Update needs to be applied, the laptop completely runs out of space and stops functioning correctly.
