Because this notebook has an ARM CPU, it runs limited number of applications well because many of apps are not optimized for ARM cpus, including common apps like Chrome. The only thing going for this laptop is the battery life which is more than 12 hours. Samsung should've made a chromebook version of this laptop to make it more appealing.

Quote from MemorableSeed427 :
This is misstated. I believe halluc1nati0n meant to say "not all Windows apps are going to run out of the box." The way it was stated reads as if no Windows apps are going to run, which is completely incorrect.

This model is running a Snapdragon processor, which is Arm64 architecture. It's basically a modified phone/tablet processor. As such, at present, it can't run 64 bit x86 Windows apps. It can however run Arm32/64 apps natively and can run 32 bit x86 using built-in emulation. It's something to watch out for.

This device is really meant for entertainment/email/Office/web browsing. I've got a Surface Pro X which has the same processor and all that works really well. This processor is great for long battery life, not getting hot, no fans (so silent), and connected standby (instant on).
In other words, everytime I try to run the most basic windows essential software like 7-zip or PDF readers, whatsapp, Telegram, basically anything beyond MS' own office software and Brave, I will get an error message?? Nice. I wonder if my Xerox printer driver can even install on this, the installer is x86 .exe, or if supports USB hubs or multiple monitors.

Edit: oops, apparently it doesnt run Chrome either so Brave wont work. I dont know what anyone can do with a Windows using ARM. This seems to be more like ARM trying to flex its muscle on Intel and we are the guinea pigs.

You can trade-in any 9.7" model. I've traded in a 10 year old iPad 2 in the past without issue.
and gotten the full $200?

Yeah. At that time the value was actually $250. You can chat with their CS before placing an order to confirm and take screenshots should you have issues.

Yup. I did it too with an ipad Gen 2. I think they might have changed the descriptor at this point. For awhile it just said "ipad 9.7" which they meant the year that the iPad was actually called "ipad 9.7" and not just any 9.7" screen. Very confusing and it seemed they accepted all or most of the trade ins. If they deny, just contact chat and they will approve it manually.

Keep in mind that this is ARM based. All windows apps are not going to run out of the box.
Meaning: "Not all Windows apps are going to run out of the box" (32-bit yes, 64-bit no…)

IMO the better deal if you're willing to jump through a few hoops and can spend a bit more is the base Galaxy Book Pro with iPad 9.7 trade-in for $442. You can easily get a used iPad 9.7 on eBay for $40. It also comes with the Galaxy Buds Pro, which you can sell for $100 without issues. So net cost would be about $400.
Only seeing $210 trade in for ipad 9.7 " and brings price to $790 not $442???

Quote from bloomfielderic :
Guess they are trying to differentiate with the Chromebook lineup. Although ARM Windows has never been relevant, somehow it's still around...
Let's say "it's back" as the Surface 2 crashed and burned on the Windows RT/ARM platform combination in 2013. With no evidence yet that Windows on ARM will receive the same level of continued development, functionality and support as mainline x86 Windows I can't imagine all but a very few restricted use cases justifying this purchase.

This kind of device isn't garbage, and could be a valuable part of organizations built around Windows-driven system administration, but I think the value for an individual would be highly questionable relative to a Chromebook, off-lease Windows laptop (or a new, low-spec model), or even an Android tablet.

Good luck!
Jon

Quote from JulioM5176 :
Can this thing run Minecraft and Roblox? If so it seems like a great option for my kid.
Minecraft can run but doing so is non-trivial. I think Roblox is basically a no-go. Windows on ARM is a terrible option for most use cases that require the installation of applications beyond the main Microsoft productivity suite.

Good luck!

You probably didn't activate the EPP/EDU discount properly.

There should be a 32bit version of Chrome that runs. Generally, Apps from Microsoft's App store run on ARM, and most 32bit apps should run on ARM.

But if what was said in post 7 is true (that it uses some sort of emulation to run 32 bit apps that aren't made specifically for this chip), then I believe it's going to be slowwwwwwwww.
