Looking to replace my old cheap Acer netbook that runs my LOR network. The new HP Stream 11/13 series looks interesting. Any advice? I would not use this laptop for anything else. No VGA port, but hdmi for video out to my pico projector. Windows 8.1.

If you are looking for a computer only to run your LOR show, why a laptop rather than a small desktop.  I have never understood the use of a laptop for a fixed only application.  As a general rule of thumb, a desktop will be less expensive for similar performance, and is FAR easier up upgrade down the road.  Laptops are not overly well suited for 24x7 operation and tend to overheat when used that way.

 

My other comment is that I would avoid Windows 8.x like the plague if you have the choice.

These retail for $199-239. I have a Mac mini that I could use, but doing any work via remote desktop isn't fun, and a separate monitor would drive the price up. My netbook is win7 and very slow.
