There's a tool you can download directly from MS that'll create an install image on a USB key. You'd probably need to change the boot order (SSD > USB) in the BIOS, but that just involves hitting a key and navigating a few menus.

Is the 4500U worth the extra €50 over the 4300U? It'd mainly be used for browsing, no image or video editing, and the only games played would be the Facebook kind.

The screen will be more than good enough. The rest of the spec you selected is spot on. Pretty much same as mine (I did throw in the touch screen option - a gimmick I'm sure I'll never use - and finger print scanner)

For what you intend to use it for, the 4300 won't even break a sweat. EVER.

Should I select the dummy drive then for the second one select my preference like 256gb?

Will that let me increase capacity later on?

If you select NONE rather than DUMMY in the first selection, it will allow selection of a better 70wh battery
