Expansion

  • M.2 2280 SATA B Key Connection (up to 1TB)
  • MicroSD card: Up to 128GB

You'll probably need the M.2 as feature update upgrading Windows 10 on the default 32GB machine is a bit of a pain.
I have a 32GB Acer laptop without the ability to expand using M.2 and the feature updates have broken the Windows on every update (not the small updates, the big feature updates) as it runs out of space (despite allowing the use of USB drive as 'extra' storage and the MicroSD can't be used).

Not a problem for me as I just reinstall and they make good cheap machines to take on holiday. Wouldn't use it as a main laptop though.

Does that mean i can add on ssd m. 2 into this laptop or is it just a usb external connection
From the same deal on Friday, it appears you can add the SSD.

I don't have this model, but the description seems to indicate a 'Window' - a drive bay.
This link from previous deal suggests yes, but look at final comment as it was a pain to get it to boot directly from M.2.

RAM is nealy always soldered on with these cheaper little units. I can't say for definite though.
Would this be quicker than a surface 3, atom processor, 4gb ram...?

No. Surface is optimised by Microsoft like Apple optimises its own Macbooks . But still very good bargain. Voted hot if hard disk installed. But 32gb flash memory is insufficient for Windows.
Someone posted how to get Windows 10 on to the SSD on the last thread about this laptop...

Has anyone tried running roblox/Minecraft on this yet?
How come this is so cheap? Full HD IPS 13" screen 4GB RAM for £100!?

Hard to gauge the real price of items. It's like when you read that a premium phone has an aluminium case, and/or glass. You get more aluminium in a 4 pack of beer, or a pint bottle. TVs have dropped in price, so figure that these displays are cheap to produce these days. And there isn't that much between a TV and laptop.

I bought a cheap Lenovo from ebuyer last Xmas, for about £140 or something. And physically it was similar to the £400 machines, that had better CPUs/internals. My partner has an Acer Chromebook and that has a better chassis than her nigh on a grand HP.

The CPU is lacking in these units. It has less grunt than my Thinkpad's Core2Duo from 2008. But the Celeron has higher performance per watt, and is more energy efficient. Low powered CPUs are useful when it comes to battery life. Wish you could get 12 hours out of this like the Acer above! It has an advertised 5hrs of battery life.
This might be a stupid question, but I want to be sure.

I've seen that people have been ordering the WD Green m.2 for this, and most saying to get the 240GB, but is there any reason the 480GB wouldn't work? This one:

Please and thank you. I don't know what I'm looking for as I know there's nvme, m2, sata 2 sata 3 and I'm a bit lost. When I bought an internal drive before for a desktop and for my PS4, it took 2.5" but had to be a certain width. Thanks again in advance!
