RAM not abit low for win10?


Should be fine for running a web browser or iTunes, which is all netbooks like this are expected to do, really. Last I checked, Win10 had lower requirements than the previous couple of versions, anyway.

I'm typing this on a 2gb HP Stream 11.6" and it's fast enough for basic tasks and small enough for travelling.
Problem is the 32gb emmc HD.......it fills up with security updates within about 6 months, so if your buying one update the Win 10 version to the recent creators update as soon as possible.

Does anyone know if this type of cloud puter can be used using mobile broadband via a dongle. ie does it eat more data up than a conventional computer?

I would very much doubt it - Data is data and files moved or downloaded from the net are finite in data size depending on size and quality of files. Downloading a 30Mb video should be the same amount of data on whatever device you download it on, as long as you aren't accessing it through some sort of proxy or alternative routing, whereby an additional connection is required (although this would only use a tiny percentage normally).

To answer the first part of your question though - I have no idea if this is compatible with a mobile dongle, as long as the dongle supports USB and the netbook has a network adapter it's hard to see why not.

Is this running Windows 7 starter or Pro?

Can you not just add something else from them, eg

That is £1

It'll be fine with a dongle and will use same amount of data as a regular 'puter as it is a regular one!

Just make sure to switch off automatic updates when you're not using WiFi as that'll kill your allowance.

Operating System: \x09Windows 10

Can you install programs on this with such little memory? I want to put on the Garmin app on this. I need a basic windows PC. I have a Chromebook but No such app exists.

It needs to be a selected item from the offer. Cheapest is £30

Anyone know if this is any good for watching movies or YouTube? Debating getting a little netbook to take on holiday or stick with the tablet

It'll be fine other than the small storage. The CPU is plenty fine for decoding video, I have a similar machine I use for this kind of task. Modern netbooks are so good, only moderate workloads are a problem - basic stuff like this is fine

Sorry but this is an ice cold terrible deal - folks just do not do their homework - a cursory glance through EBay turns up this much better deal ...

ebay.co.uk/itm…902

better more recent processor & more Ram

But it's 15% more expensive.

Nobody should be buying a Windows machine with 32GB eMMC. It's non-upgradeable, performance is closer to an SD card, and automatic updates will swallow this up in less than a year.

Just fork out the extra for something decent or get a chromebook
Edited by: "nyasham" 25th Jul

You can put in an SD card if you need more storage. I'm sure additional apps can be installed on there if you specify the installation path.

Will it play Destiny 2?

dont even bother its slow and a pile of junk...

I agree.

Performance on these is ok to be fair, as long as you don't have more than about 3 browser tabs open its fine. I use my similar spec machine a lot for WFH via remote access, hook it up to a monitor and wireless keyboard and mouse, it's more than powerful enough to run the remote desktop and have iPlayer radio in the background and a couple of browser tabs, excel spreadsheets. Yes 32gb memory is low but after window install you should still have 10gb free, so you can't fill it with audio or video files no, but it's a good WFH machine, uses next to no electricity too...

Anyone know if this would be ok for doing level 3 coursework on? Start my course in September but I am absolutely skint so need as cheap as possible but know nothing about computers as always just use my phone

some of these are upgradable, would have to look into it, it has to do with the wifi card using a pci express slot, remove that. get a bigger m2 storage drive, then use a small external usb wifi adapter for wireless. Some of these windows cloud laptops can just be upgraded easily, but ALOT have the HD memory soldered to main board...

Ahh ok, sorry about that.

this was £99 for a new one 6 months ago!! Why pay the same price for refurb?? I ordered one and then cancelled it as I found that it takes a full sized SD card and the SD card sticks out making it useless!

Use disc cleanup, and cleanup system files. and next tab cleanup system restore and shadow copies. Use a fast SD to install to.

The extra £13 or 12.7% (check your maths) is well worth it - better processor and 4GB RAM.

You'd be crazy to go for the Tesco Deal !

You have no idea at all !
These little laptops are great for browsing and media playback - and they are completely silent (no fans) !

Yes, I agree the 32GB eMMC is a let down and will be a hassle - but at this price it's unavoidable.

The one I linked to can be upgraded to 8GB RAM and there is a slim possibility of installing an SSD or HDD with an extra SATA cable (cost around £15) - but I cannot confirm that.

It will play Crysis.

I suggest you check yours.

Tesco = £99
One in your link =£114.99

Your suggestion is £15.99 more expensive than the Tesco version.
15.99 / 99 = 16.2 % more expensive than Tesco one.

Perfectly fine for light browsing and emails. No good for much more.

Tesco deal was £99 + £3.00 Express Delivery
Percentage increase on my link is calculated as ...

(114.99 - 102)/102 = 12.7% increase over the Tesco deal or an extra £12.99 !

I stand corrected. Didn't notice the delivery charge.
Still fine for light use and not much more.
