I'll give heat because for the money it is a good deal.

However, I have to warn against the 32 hard drive. If another big Windows Update comes along you will have problems. With Windows installed and the usual crap bundled with laptops you are lucky to have 10gb left which is not a lot of space. The 2gb ram is borderline, it will be okay but personally I would aim for 4gb.

Despite that I am tempted to have this for my 7 & 9 year old as occasionally they need a PC for their school work. But unless you are slightly technical I would aim for a 64gb drive.
Absolutely. Don't even think Win10 can properly function on this spec. But check you can put a Linux distribution on it - and it should be just fine if you stick to a XFCE or LDXE desktop. I have them happily running on 2Gb 10 year old netbooks. The OS will be < 10Gb of disk so no updating issues. Bung some extra sd storage for your videos and stuff and its a handy light and small device to bung in a bag when travelling.
Agree good value, ONLY AS A LINUX MACHINE! Buy this as a Windows laptop & you will likely regret it more than sticking pins in your eyes!

I wouldn't go that far. As a day to day it will be fine but expect problems with a major update. But yes, awesome as a linux device.
Are you sure? Go on try it & let me know.

Yep, 3350 scores less than a Z8350 (by 10%), combined with only 2GB RAM & possible a slow eMMC - I think there are better bets out there for windows. The n4200 Lenovo at eBuyer for £150 is much better IMHO. This is a back of drawer sure fire (if you want a Windows machine).

That's the point - at that time (every six months) - the average user will throw up their hands in horror and the machine into a bin. Yes, there are skills to recover but it isn't really a usable machine in that spec.

Only wish i could intercept one on the way to the bin!

But will the average user know how to install or use Linux. Not disagreeing with you but there pros and cons both sides. I think we can agree on avoiding it though.

No, but they probably will know someone who can install. Or can, at least, follow a YouTube video. Provided they install a 'user-friendly' distribution that looks after the updating with sensible defaults - thinking Linux Mint XFCE or Mate - then it should be granny proof and just as intuitive as Windows for browsing, email and basic office. It will just work and continue working with boot up times that will knock much more powerful Windows machines into a cocked hat.
