This is a great little 'throw around' computer. I bought one last year (but with 64 GB e-drive) and I love it for occasional use/backup to my main computer. The SD slot allows for expansion.

Thanks, good to know. I bought the same computer in the Lenovo Thinkbook X131 (or something like that) model for $200 back 4 years ago, now battery is shot, Win7 is outdated, etc., so this seems to be a great $200 fix vs. buying battery and dealing with software degradation over 4 years. This one is same size, most same functions, but also nearly half the weight.

Anyone with other thoughts, your ideas welcome.

Do yourself a favor and Google "Lenovo spyware" or "Lenovo bloatware" before buying this brand.

Yes, I've seen those stories, but I'm on my 3rd product (1 netbook, 1 laptop, and 1 tablet) and no issues, at least that I can "see".

Now I'm conflicted about processor speed. My 4 year old similar Win 7 laptop with Intel Dual-Core 1007U processor shows up as ~ 40% better benchmark speed versus this units newer Intel N3060, yet does that matter when the older chip is running Win 7, and clearly struggling (4 gb RAM) versus the newer chip running Win 10, which I understand to be "lighter" less demanding system. Thoughts?

Found this nifty comparison tool:

(Years ago, I bought the same or similar laptop off Woot! for my sister).

Absolutely a concern.

Here is the comparison tool I use most often - with some equivalent CPU choices.

The Pentium and Celeron models to get are: 3865u OR 3965u OR 4415u OR 4415y OR 4410y OR 3965y

A simple rule of thumb (laptops, not desktops) for the lightweight processors might be: numbers in front, not letters.

My daughter had to replace her computer after a flood and bought something akin to this.

Her realization was the CPU wasn't fast enough for more than one tab or so.

I just bought her a refurb business machine from another part of Woot!

I'm looking at this for a cheap way to watch videos/streaming tv etc. using an HDMI cable to the TV. Any thoughts if this will work for that use? Thanks in advance.

Appreciated. Bottom line, for me, if I will be disappointed with performance when having more than one or two tabs open at a time, it's not for me. Back to waiting and saving for that HP X360 i9 with 16 GB RAM!

I have a few "cloudbook" type laptops that came out to try to compete with Chromebooks. Most were pretty sluggish.

However, if you can live without Windows apps, many of the Linux distros work well and perform faster.

For those with kids, I suggest Endless OS.

There is an option to bundle in all kinds of (free) educational items and references and games so you don't have to be online.

More advanced users will have to look and compare.

Right now I'm using RoboLinux on an Acer Cloudbook configured a lot like this Lenovo. I have one app (Q10 word processor) that runs in a virtual Windows just fine.

Just a thought on getting the right machine for the job.

Another thought. We have 30 mps up and down on our WiFi system. Some computers take full advantage, others do not. Seems related to the age of the unit. Any thoughts on how to tell if (for example) this unit will handle it?

I don't feel good about this use, and I am a HTPC guy - using Windows Media Center as my main DVR. Google the graphics card (Intel HD 400) and see what others have said. If you do, I would definitely go with the 4 GB of RAM. I worry about the processor a little too...

I have a lenovo laptop and there was so much lenovo software on it that it took me quite to time to uninstall it. I still don't think I got it all. EVery time I boot up, it does testing and scanning and all sorts to slow me down. I think I am going to have to wipe the drive completely and do a fresh OS install.
