4GB of ram nowadays with fully fledged Windows 10, even if it's SSD, let's say you want to open 2 tabs with news sites, the computer will feel slow. Those specs are from year 2012, and for that price, it's not a bargain per se

Show me more of 100eur laptops like these it is not the best choice of laptops, although it definitely is cheap

Ordered the Fujitsu myself - if it comes, which I doubt it will, would be a good laptop for the parents I feel.

Not a chance they will honour it though...

Iv a 2009 laptop with a SSD running Win7 and it is very responsive. So if Win10 is slow just install 7.

Just install any Linux distro.


Not complaining, but most of the people who might buy this will use it right out from the box, and won't bother.... they will complain that they bought a computer, and it's not working as they expect. And expectations differ for each one of us.


If it were me, I'd install Debian 8, any lightweight desktop, then forget about it all.

Gimmicks really. A variant of this is probably the best for terrestrial TV.
