Great price. If it wasn't for the 4Gb maximum RAM this would make a great home server for docker images.

Still might be enough for a media server though

Are there customs/import chargers ordering through eBay when they come from the US? I've only ordered through Lenovo direct before.

Got the lower end one on Black Friday. Knew it was small, was not prepared for just how small it was.

4 GB is the maximum amount of memory? Don't reward them for this behavior. There are a ton of old laptops floating around on the used market with 4 or even 8 GB of memory that can be had for much less than this. They shouldn't be making these boxes that are basically e-waste the moment they roll off the line.

4 GB is more than enough for the original use cases for these units. Instore displays and, virtual desktops, retail and industrial uses. They were not designed for home use.

For those of you who don't have the next generation Xbox Series X or PS5 this is a great way to try Cyberpunk and get a similar console-like experience.

My first desktop had 4.3GB HARD DRIVE with 128mb Ram - worked fine for years for internet & ms office suit. Grinning Face
IMO, 4GB RAM should serve the purpose of day to day computing needs. Obsolescence rate is very high in electronic & computers Grinning Face

Modern CPUs have been safe to overheat for over a decade, you need not worry about this. Still, don't buy a new system with 4 GB of soldered on memory.

Emphatically no, not even for web browsing.
