Intel UHD 600 benchmark score of 323. I would have loved to use this for retro emulation gaming, but I doubt it can handle even n64 games with that score.

I don't personally need it, but this is an excellent deal for a brand new laptop for basic needs. Thanks OP!

? It has a celeron N4000 which is scored at around 1500.

Anyway the problem isnt hte CPU. It's the DRAM.

I have similar system (Dell Inspiron 3180 11.6") and with 4GB ram is consistently sits at 3GB usage. 2GB ram will have MASSIVE slowdowns, while it swaps memory.

HARD pass.

Is the RAM upgradable? A 4GB stick shouldn't cost too much to upgrade if so

This machine's RAM is NOT upgradable, as it's soldiered onto the board. However, looking at a couple of youtube videos, this machine seems to hold itself well and doesn't seem super slow. Hope that helps

To those looking for a similar 11.6" basic laptop with 4GB RAM, this Dell with an AMD A6 is only $99 at AAFES [shopmyexchange.com] (military only). If you don't have access to AAFES, B&H has the next lowest price at $155. [bhphotovideo.com]

I have a very similar one with 4gb/32 and truthfully I don't know how Windows could even run on 2GB - mine is slow to the point of unusable... And when windows upgrades - it is a hoot with only 32 GB...

You'd be better off with a chromebook if spending this little.

Looks like there's a 4 GB option, but that bumps up the price from $120 to $200. I haven't tried checking out but the coupon code says it'll only knock off $20 maximum.

ChronoTriggered was giving the benchmark score for the integrated graphics--not the cpu--contesting (rightly so) the OPs assertion that it can even "game." The cpu is barely adequate... but, indeed, adequate.

The biggest issue I see with this is having just 32 GB of eMMC storage, not enough for what Windows 10 has ballooned into. If this is not upgradable, then it will require the workaround involving an external drive.
