HP stream 13 ultrabook - improve performance -
| posts: 171
I got me a second hand HP stream 13 for a very low price. I am using it for college (programming in notepad++, matlab, etc.). It is fine for this job - 13.3" is a good screen size, battery life is just great, it is fairly light to be carried in my backpack.
- celeron N3050 1.6Ghz (no upgrade option)
- 2GB ram (no upgrade option)
- 32GB SSD (no upgrade option, 100MB read, write is lower)
- microsd slot (right now i have some slow 16GB card just for backup)
I wanted to use windows 8.1 since i know how to tweak it up, but sadly hp only has drivers for windows 10. I already did a bit of tweaking but there is always room for more. I am looking for some usefull tweaks i could do to speed up this weak computer. Mostly for browsing (im using chrome) but general usage could use a bump also. I already disabled things like onedrive, windows defender, etc.
