If you're worrying about your short memory, you should see someone about it, providing you remember of course.

Probably better to get a cheap Chromebook. Windows 10 won't be pleasant to use on this. Alternatively, install a Linux distribution such as Ubuntu Mate. You can install Chrome OS on many Windows based computers but some hardware may not be supported.

Heat for the price, but I wouldn't recommend using Windows on this.

Was looking at buying this last night but in the end went for the £50 more expensive one at ebuyer as it has 4GB ram and 64GB eMMC. Heat for the price

I think that’s wise longer term. I have a Lenovo 100s with similar specs to this that I use for light work on the go and the latest updates were hard to fit on there. Before I did the update I got nagged each time I turned it on.

But I’ll also say that the other day ITZoo had an HP Elitebook 8470p for under £100 ex-lease which had a Core i5 2nd gen, 4GB RAM and a 320GB hard disk that can be replaced with an SSD. That would be better longer term than any of these options.
The answer to how many updates before it's full is zero. You'll be lucky to get it updated without a lot of messing. Whilst Windows usually expands as time goes on the previous version can be deleted so that's not really the issue. It's the download and unpacking of the new version alongside the old version during the update process that is tight/impossible on 32GB. I'm sure there was an extended storage/USB option on the update software after complaints from users but I couldn't find this the last couple of times I attempted to update a 32GB machine and gave up (they weren't my machines!)
i would buy this if it was on ubuntu or mint

you can stick Ubuntu on a pen stick and run it from there before you install

You need to use the USB download tool from microsoft, once installed there is about 15 gig free.

PC world were unable to do fix hence refund. The tech guy said M$ were trying to fix so good to hear they have
To update one of these laptops who's drives is almost full......
Use a 2nd laptop to download a copy of Ubuntu and burn to usb stick. Use this to erase all the partitions on the 32gb laptop.
Using the 2nd laptop again to download a copy of Win10 'for a different computer' and burn to a clean usb stick. Install onto the 32gb laptop. YouTube is your friend here.
