the world of laptops is actually regressing back in time, and I can hardly wait for the 2020 models with a black board and chalk you carry around - and at only $99!!

It'd display video of both legal and illegal forms just fine.

The big issue is Windows 10 is "free" to OEMs for 2GB and lower, but full price >2GB. So for this price point that is why you typically see 2GB.

seriously? I would never buy a laptop with a passmark below 4K, as then it won't do much in terms of real-world performance.

I've never had a problem with 2GB in windows 10. I have two devices both Z3735F's with 2GB and windows 10 and they are the fastest machines I own. I'm right now working on one with 30 tabs open in firefox, editing a powerpoint presentation and with word open as well as the standard stuff like dropbox and skype running in the background and it's only using 1.3GB with 1% disk usage in the past 5 minutes. I've even had over 200 tabs open before and it still didn't reach 2gb.

It is a big deal. I had more usage out of my 'now-cracked-screen Acer Windows 10 Netbox" vs my Samsung Chromebook. Even watching a basic movie off a USB is a challenge with Chromebook. You can do the same with Chrome running on this laptop.retrothing wrote: ↑I would pay $10 more to get an Acer 11.6" Chromebook from Best Buy ($209.99 until June 16). The n2840 processor scores better on Passmark, and because Chrome OS is a lightweight operating system I find that Chromebooks feel fast -- even with 2GB of RAM.
And, no, for most people the inability to run Windows programs isn't a big deal.

Base model of surface 3 has only 2GB as well. Its probably enough for basic users.

The old Samsung Chromebooks with ARM processors are horribly under-powered. The latest crop of Intel-based Chromebooks do much better (the n2840 in the one I linked to is about 10% faster than the Inspiron 11's processor).

maybe there is a ms requirement with smaller laptops like this, to make 100% sure that they just can't be upgraded and use a free license?

Yup got a refurbed Lenovo Thinkpad T430S with 4GB RAM, 320 GB hard drive for $315 final price shipped. Passmark over 4000. Not the best, but cheap and usable. Easy and cheap to add more RAM and a decent SSD.

I believe those PC only support 64bit UEFI/Secure boot mode. You need to use "legacy" bios for 32 bit Window10.BabaMeca wrote: ↑And what is the reason they to deploy a 64-bit version on that 2GB laptop?
I have HP Stream 13 - the same specs and recently did Win10 clean install (which went fine, BTW, no more bloatware). I'm just wondering what if I put 32-bit Win10 instead of original shipped 64-bit?
RAM is not upgradable and I would probably can save few resources by running 32-bit OS with 2GB of RAM.
What do you think?
