which card should I buy for the memory card slot on HP stream 11

Product Name: HP 11 Stream
Operating System: Windows 8.1

just received my new stream 11.  have barely unpacked it yet!

 

quesition: I know that there's a slot for a memory card - I almost never use a camera, so I'm not totally familiar with that technology.  

 

Can anyone tell me what kind of card goes with that slot?  What's the maximum capacity?

 

thanks!

The SD card slot supports all current SD cards:

 

HP multi-format digital media card reader, which supports the following formats: 

  • Secure Digital (SD) 
  • Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) 
  • Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC)

Hi Customer,

 

If you are ferring to the SD card slot shown in the Picture.

It can be any SD card with any size available in the market.

Okay!  thanks very much!

 

follow-up question: this is an SD card as opposed to a "MicroSD" card?  not sure what the difference is, if any.

 

for instance, would this card (from newegg) work:

thanks again,

Your link got chopped but MicroSD is smaller and wouldn't fit the slot.  There are microSD to SD adapters

 

SD cards

thanks! I get it now, I think.

 

this seems to be a NON-micro SD card (with a shortened link) :
