Graphics should be better with the Celeron N3450 in the iSmart with dx12 support and a significantly lower TDP again:

1080p IPS is a big plus in the iSmart, and 4gb RAM is still quite useable for everyday tasks, the intention for this device, I'm assuming DDR4 for more efficient heating.
The 32 gb eMMC is probably the weakest link in the iSmart, but a simple and inexpensive m.2 upgrade will solve that issue.
AC wifi is a plus in the iSmart as well.
The Samsung was bought for about $1100 CAD on sale at the time of April 2013 (CAD dollar on par with USD at time, not 1.35 CAD for every 1 USD like today plus inflation), and I had to replace the keyboard 2 years ago for $200... aside from that, runs well, battery is still quite good, user experience is fine, the wife uses it everyday.
Aside from hoping the battery will last decently for years to come, I'm pretty confident in what to expect.
So if you're wondering what the experience will be like for a $200 machine (plus a minimal SSD upgrade), take this into consideration.
Cheers everyone, and thanks again OP for the find.
