        I’m not trying to be a jerk… but I’m downvoting this just so unaware people don’t actually buy this pile of crap

    No offence OP, but I wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole. That CPU was anaemic when it was released, and it has definitely not improved.

    For a rough example, in some (certainly not all) benchmarks it gets beaten by a Raspberry Pi 4. They were generally used in embedded devices or NAS style systems on unix for less overhead. Add to that the lack of ongoing manufacture support or compatibility with Windows 11 and it's just not worth it in my opinion.

    You'd get much better bang for buck - and a much more reliable/supported device - with either a second hand or manufacturer refurb laptop from within the last 5 years.

        A quality ex-Corp laptop won’t have any of those issues. Many are still under warranty!

        I picked up two Lenovo ex-corp laptops with 7th gen i5 CPUs and SSDs for the same money as this, and they had two years warranty remaining from Lenovo. Both have been perfect for my mother and mother-in-law for over a year.

          Same experience, but with Dell laptops. Built like tanks and still performing very well. OP is clearly very biased.

            @Omk4r123: Yep, they’re definitely the way to go over this trash.

        • can you give me links?

        • Good luck getting guarantees of battery life on nearly all second-hand laptops. Let alone getting something light and small for everyday tasks with a decent warranty.

          Completely different needs and.wants.

            @wiffy: The battery life on this new garbage will be rubbish, so hardly the big plus you’re trying to paint it as.

            This sort of crap is a total waste of money, and not even suitable for everyday tasks. Windows Update will cripple this thing before you even load any other apps.

              • @Bretttick: you're saying you can't find anything for $200… in a thread about a laptop with warranty that costs $198?

                hmmmm.

              • @Bretttick: I was comparing more like-for-like with the ~$250 14-inch model.

                I picked up two Lenovo L450 refurbs for my mum and mother in law, both had about two years left on their 5 year on-site warranties. According to the Lenovo support site, both were purchased with the extended service package. Certainly a YMMV situation, but both of the units had only ~100 cycles on the battery too.

                Neither have had any issues with either machine in the year since purchase.

                • @Mitch889: those secondhand Lenovos are good value if those came with the 1920x1080 screen option (the 14" Ollee doesn'!), and Lenovos are often modular, upgradable and repairable; a new battery would be $40.

                  The drawbacks for me are that the Lenovo is twice as heavy as the Ollee, a good bit larger, not silent, and less likely to spend time sitting coolly on my lap. I view netbooks as laptops and laptops as desktops.

                  • @mantichoral: I’d be surprised if those Ollee’s sit coolly on your lap with no fan. They’ll be light because the mainboard is tiny and has a very small cooling solution. The CPU will always be working hard considering the low performance potential.

                    The Lenovos don’t have to work hard under normal conditions, and seemed to run quite cool when I was using them.

                    But to each their own, I would rather a performant refurb over these Ollee’s every day of the week.

    • Curious to know, what do you think is the cheapest price for a decent new laptop?

      • +2

        Depends on what you want your laptop to do. Gaming? You can get an okay-ish one for $1000 to $1200. General productivity? Maybe around $800 to $1000. Extremely basic stuff? $600 to $800.

                @Omk4r123:

                For ~$89 more than this laptop, you can get a Realme 6(wireless1.com.au) from Wireless1, which has 8gb of RAM.

                You are comparing RAM size between a phone and a laptop. Stronly suggesting more RAM = better. Why don't u spend $89 more and buy a phone then?

                Should I point out the absurdity of comparing 2 devices with different architectures, different OSs and different use-cases?

                You have just outed yourself as an enthusiast out of touch with everyday computing. We can go back and forth like this trying to prove one or the other is better. The laptop will win in some areas. The phone in others.

                And then what? I run a phone using the latest LineageOS with hardware from 8 years ago and 3GB of ram. It runs superbly. 32-bit ARM. Must be trash…

      Having used the same processor in a smaller NUC style device, avoid if possible for this purpose. For 1080p YouTube, I was dropping around 20% frames with the CPU pinging. This is due in part to the lack of hardware support for decoding any recent video codec. In a faster CPU you can manage with software decoding, but not this. You may find it "ok" with 720p and below, but it's not going to be enjoyable, and certainly not if multitasking.

      If you're hoping to use Netflix/Disney, I'd do further research to confirm that this chipset can even handle the DRM requirements these days. Far more trouble than its worth.

      • This model's Intel HD 500 graphics chipset supports hardware AVC, H.264 and HEVC decoding, per its specs.

        https://www.cpu-monkey.com/en/igpu-intel_hd_graphics_500-57

        There's a lot of difference between chip hardware released in 2016, and in, say, 2006.

        (I have no idea what hardware support for codecs has to do with DRM, but then, neither does the post I'm replying to.)

    • +2

      Just use a cheap tablet or phone. My mum got a similar laptop and it couldn't handle streaming video without dropping the quality. Was a complete waste of time, her phone was faster in every way.

      • Absolutely this. At least a modern Android tablet will have far more comprehensive hardware codec decoding and proper DRM chipset support.

    Not worth it. Even at $200, running Windows these things are SLOW AF.

        Not at all. My posts are sincere. Feel free to buy your second-hand laptop. I prefer to buy hardware with very low TDP processors that perform the everyday basics well enough for me to use them daily, in a small size and with light weight and no heat-related early death, preferably.
