[Canada Computers] ISmart SMTB4002 N14H Pro-R 14.1" (1920x1080) laptop - $99

It’s a pretty basic laptop with a 1080p TN display. Can’t go wrong for only $99.

if you buy this piece of junk (likely from China), then you are the opposite of iSmart.

There are so many electronics (and other goods) that are made in China now, are you sure you are so "ismart" that you don't have one or two of those items?

He probably thinks his iPhones are made in a factory in California.

I did a double take, this is actually a decent deal, much better than the $349 vivobook from MS. Half the speed / storage/ ram, yet 1/3 of the price, and you aren't stuck with a restricted OS.

however, it would appear that this item is for in-store pick up only.

Upvoted regardless.

Chrome OS would be better suited for this hardware.

I wonder which Linux distribution would run well on it. It's decent for $99...even just as a media player.

I got an aspire switch 10 a few years ago @ thesource for around $100 (and other RFD members too). It's pretty much the same spec as this little laptop and I use it everyday VS my main laptop.

I wish there was 4GB and 64GB but it still runs great.

At $100 this doesn't seem that bad VS getting a cheap RCA tablet with a keyboard at walmart. But everyone has their own opinion on these products. As long as there's a good return policy it would be nice to try. :)

Could Chrome OS be installed on this? Sorry if this is a stupid question.

63 open box units available chainwide, you're probably going to be returning your unit a couple of times before you get a good one
