    if this thing had more storage, full sized sd slot and usb 3.1 type a ports it would be a great travel machine. bit of a missed opportunity from lenovo imo.

      I have a 32GB device like this.

      To do a major Windows update, I have to restore factory image to remove all apps in order to have enough space for the update. And even then, during the update itself I needed an SD card for temporary usage because it wasn't enough for both the temporary install files and the final updated OS on the same 32GB.

      You need a minimum 64GB.

        yeah i just havn't updated my 32gb device since buying :/

        •  

          I ignored the updates too. Until windows gave me a notification that the build I am running is no longer supported by Microsoft.

          Wow. A Windows 10 build no longer supported? Yet Windows 8 is still supported.

          After that, I had to do a clean factory reset. But I'm not going to be able to upgrade to the next major build. Even a factory reset won't be enough.

            @lostn: Version update 1709 install failed 24 times on my 32Gb Windows 10 tablet, probably due to lack of available space. I deleted everything in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download then got on chat at microsoft.com and the guy helped me out. He remotely intiated the download of version update 1804 (downloaded using a second pc), saying that would make the earlier 1709 version update unnecessary. When version 1804 update .iso download completed, put it on external usb, then mounted the .iso on the tablet and ran the .exe file. It worked! Tablet is now up to date. My suggestions are 1. Chat to microsoft to solve current issues, and 2. Change your wifi connection properties to metered, so you can see if a large version update is available, 3. To install version updates, Either chat to microsoft or and follow the procedure above to download and install it manually instead of using windows update. Chat to microsoft if you encounter issues. 4. Install and use portable apps such as Firefox Portable, Sumatra Portable etc. on the sd card install of installing apps on the system drive to save space there.

        I agree, my family member purchased a laptop with 32GB storage and nothing but trouble. It is now in the recycling. Vendors should not be able to hard solder 32GB primary storage. It should be up-gradable, especially when USB sticks hold more storage.

        I've used 32GB Win10 devices for a few years when travelling and I don't really have any issues, I manage to keep around 13GB free on c-drive (it varies a bit depending on current win version)…

        -I keep a 128GB MicroSD card in them all the time and I install everything I can on that, programs, Windows Apps & offline maps (set in settings), store general files and such there also… Google Chrome and Earth cant be installed on external storage so they take up a little space on C-drive but not enough to be an issue…

        -Run "Disk Cleanup" before and after major updates and delete old windows versions and such… Major updates like 1803 to 1809 will use the SD card for temporary storage and store old win version backup files there, delete them after the update…

        -Delete everything in >>> C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download <<< if it starts to fill up..

        -Running "Compact OS" helps:

        Running a 32GB device isn't for a total PC-noob but for someone with a bit of an idea it's really no issue…

          Running a 32GB device isn't for a total PC-noob

          Or for anyone who actually installs stuff on their device. And not to a high seek time / latency SD card either.

          If you have to spend money on an SD card, may as well get a device with a bigger storage.

    Urgh. No. Please don't believe anything a big-box electronics store sales consultant tells you regarding what a $299 laptop can do. This is tablet-grade performance and it won't even come close to the performance of the rather meekly equipped Surface Go.

    It will need a deep clean every six months for the windows 10 feature updates to get installed. This will only get worse as future updates to windows 10 will reserve up to 7GB space. https://www.howtogeek.com/fyi/windows-10-will-soon-reserve-7...

      I have been clicking that deal every day praying it comes back in stock….

      •  

        Is it that good a deal? It's a refurb.

        •  

          I have bought two refurbs from them. You can’t tell the difference between brand new and that. Unfortunately one had problem with screen going off. So made a return request on ebay, after 5 months of having it and they sent a paid label to return the laptop and refunded whole amount.

    I got one of these from JB for $279 at the end of January
    The missus uses it for a uni course. Works fine for Office and web browsing. Battery lasts a full day at uni without charging.
    Also has a decent keyboard too
    Only draw back is the USB C port doesn’t do power delivery which would have been a bonus.
    As commented above it doesn’t have the performance of a surface go, but it’s half the price.
    Good for those on a budget

    For a budget laptop I recently bought a Chuwi Lapbook SE for ~$400 shipped.

    $100 more is well worth the extra 128GB m.2 SSD (also contained 32 eMMC) as well as the 1080p screen and the lot better N4100 CPU.

    https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Celeron-N4100-vs...

    Honestly - osu! lags on that laptop; idek how it will fare on a N4000…

      The problem with Chuwi is they have a fairly high failure rate and no warranty beyond DOA, and even that's a pain with chinese sellers, you usually have to do it through a Paypal claim… If it dies at 6 months of age you've gotta suck it up, zero support…

    Maybe run a light Linux on it (Q4OS or Elementary OS)?

    Windows & a 32GB emmc should be outlawed.

  •  

    If you are hoping to keep Windows up-to-date, take note that 32GB eMMC will cause you lots of headaches.

    eMMC is SSD speed?

  •  

    These were $279 at JB last week.
    I picked one up the other week which has 64gb of storage and runs surprisingly well, don't expect it to play games well or do content creation but it handles web browsing and the office suite pretty well. Screen is average but on the better side and the battery will definitely last you a day. Would recommend for uni student on a budget as it is portable and can also be used as a tablet.
    Note that it has expandable storage so you can pop a micro sd in.
