Only one review... "Slowest Laptop I've ever seen. Save your money and your frustration, stay away from this under powered laptop." , not exactly a ringing endorsement.

4GB ram may have something to do with it - anyone know if that's easily upgradeable? crucial.com thinks they sell ram for it, but doesn't have instructions.

With Windows 10 you need at least 8GB of RAM to run it smoothly. Cortana sucks up a lot of resources and there's lots of bloatware with the Microsoft store. If you can only do 4GB of RAM then you should turn off Cortana and all the "smart" features of Windows 10. You could run Windows 7 on 4GB of RAM pretty smoothly unless you were a multi-tasking a lot of apps.

Correct. This i3-8130U (PassMark: 5003) compared favorably against the i5-6300U in my Elitebook (PassMark: 4369).

Nope, Windows 10 runs fantastic on 4GB.
