Difficult to know what to say about this. Small, compact, use for youtube, browser/lite office/lite media etc. Should be fast enough with SSD. About 60GB free after Windows10 has been updated and you've got an office program installed. "S mode" is easy to remove if you want to install some none-Windows store stuff.
That's a good find for the money, at least the RAM and SSD are easily upgradable in a few months (or just cannibalized out of another system) which would be a quick and easy boost to performance as a laid back homework, Netflix binging, excel crunching, netbrowsing machine.
Maybe consider another 4gb depending on usage (eg, if you're like my wife and have never ever closed a chrome tab in last 3 years)... shame about the resolution. Where do Dell keep finding these old panels?

You can get windows keys from ebay for about £3, then just download the ISO to a memory stick, and off you go.
So a definite yes imo. 1366x768 was horrid on laptops 10 years ago, and even more horrid today
My issue with this machine is that a similarly priced Chromebook would perform better. It's not as if you'd want to run Photoshop on a machine this slow.

Actually just been reading that MS office and apps will be coming to Chromebooks as Google have partnered with parallels.

Ive run Photoshop, visual studio, SQL server and others on machines far slower than this over the years. It's not exactly a workstation but then it's £250, not £2500

Oh yes Mr K, you can run anything on a Windows machine. That's the great thing about them. I'm saying you wouldn't want to though.

Thanks great help
Any idea if this would work with the £100 off £750 spend if buying 3 laptops

I've got the Ubuntu Linux version of this and am impressed. It boots in 17 seconds, the OS is easy to use and takes up less than 6 Gig. It's a huge improvement over the admittedly creaky 2014 Windows machine it replaced.
My only gripe is it came with Google Chrome pre-installed (which I thought goes against Linux 'philosophy') and was a bit of a faff to remove.
