    I just ordered a HP Stream 7 Signature Edition and was wondering, what can't be installed in it? I have a Surface RT (first gen) and if it isn't from the market it can't be installed, is this Stream the same way?

    The Stream had full Windows unlike the surface which has RT so you can install apps from market and not from the market.

    The only limitations you'll see are how much storage space the device has and how powerful it is. (Probably won't play Planetside 2, and you probably wont be able to fit it on there anyway)

    you can add an SD card to it, so size won't be much of a limitation, but the amount of RAM (1GB) would be, so very graphics intensive things could lag a bit. While it has a 64-bit processor, it only has 32-bit UEFI, so if you have an application that requires 64-bit, it won't run. Not that I've seen a consumer app with that requirement yet. Enterprise is a different story. So far, the only thing I've found that you <cannot> run on it is Clash of Clans. Simply because the vendor hasn't made it available to run in Windows. Which is fine by me.
