Acer Swift 1 (Acer Refurbished) - copynpast from Eden' old post ( SORRY OOS already )
Model: SF114-32-P2PK

Scratch & Dent: $161.99 [acerrecertified.com]
Refurbished Excellent: $189.99 [acerrecertified.com]

Ram: 4 GB
Processor: Intel Pentium N5000 Quad-core
Screen Size:14"
Display Technology: 1920 x 1080p IPS
Storage: 64 GB Flash ( Open slot for M.2 SATA )

We bought couple of these for low income families earlier last month, as the result, I love it so much I bought one for myself. Smilie I am NOT a heavy user or gamer..
* 2.8lb and thin ( this may be one of the lightest laptop for 14" )
* Long battery life, advertise for 14hr, but I can easily get through 9hr of watching TV and browsing with 20% left
* NO FAN!!! on my old fat lap still don't feel much, maybe little warm after 2 hours of movie
* Metal casing, don't know.. feel cool to touch
* Although 160mhz wifi doesn't do me anything, but wifi seem responsive.
* Webcam support MS hello
* 2800 benchmark point........ not that I care, but won't hurt to compare with my i3-7100u Smilie
* yes, I put an OLD Intel 180GB SSD m.2 SATA and boot from it.

p.s. When you are doing windows clean install, or bios upgrade, make sure you install Intel driver v26.20.100.7325 or newer FIRST.
Nope, you wont break it! Without the driver, you get blank screen after reboot. .. then, you have to plug your laptop to TV via HDMI....

Is there a chance to expend the RAM to 8GB? 64GB storage is OK for Windows. My PC only uses less than 40GB.

Sorry, not the RAM.

ONLY thing expandable or removable is
Wifi AC card
Open M.2 SATA slot
Huge battery~

4GB RAM (Max) is a pretty big limitation.

Looks like no USB-C charging and that this has been $140 for refurbished version in past at Staples.

It's a non-touch screen. So Pen input would be through something other than the screen. If that's what you want, a desktop PC is capable of Pen input. In other words, any PC is Pen input.

If you have Wacom, you will not be able to install the drivers for it since the Windows is in S mode. If you take Windows out of S mode, then you I have heard the laptop is a lot more sluggish.

The Acer Spin 1 shows support, but costs too much. IPad Pro 2017 seems like the cheapest device.

Of course I'd install a full version of Windows. I don't want something that is only half capacity.

I have switched to regular HOME but I honestly don't feel any sluggish, perhaps I always do the following "boost mode"

1. Settings -> Privacy -> Turn everything off in
[General]
[Speech]
[Inking & typing personalization]
[Activity history]
[Backgroud apps]
[App diagnostics]

2. Settings-> System- Turn everything off in
[Shared experiences]

3. Control Panel -> All Control Panel item -> System -> Advanced system settings
Select [Advanced] tab and go to <Performance> Settings...
Click on <Adjust for best performance>
check only
- Show shadows under windows
- Show thumbnails instead of icons
- Smooth edges of screen fonts
- Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop

you should see huge different Smilie
