I don't think it's good deal. CPU are all 2 cores, 8-24gb memory. I had 1 laptop like this at home, they run normal browsing web and light weight app just fine. With couple hundred more bucks, you can get decent laptop can last longer.

Have a look at this - https://www.tomshardware.com/how-...equirement.

It should be possible to install Windows 11 on this, by employing one of those hacks.

I am typing this right now on a Dell Latitude E7470, which also can't be upgraded (officially) to Windows 11. Big Grin I am going to use one of those hacks if/when Microsoft stops providing security updates/support for Windows 10.

I am not in a hurry to use Windows 11. I don't like it. I'll use Windows 10 until I must upgrade, to ensure I still receive security patches.

I hope it works out for you in the future.
I still recommend against buying such old tech.

I'm sure it will be fine, thanks. Wink When I bought this laptop in February of 2021, I did not even think about whether it would work with Windows 11. That wasn't even on my mind, as I never thought to check. I was surprised when this laptop's CPU didn't make the cut for "official" Windows 11 support, but as it was an older refurbished laptop I guess it's not too unbelievable that it isn't supported.

If I can't get Windows 11 on it, I'll probably install Linux (Ubuntu) instead. I have set up Ubuntu and Windows 11 on another laptop (dual-booting), and think Ubuntu runs fairly well on it.

I agree, it's best not to buy old technology, unless it's intended for a very specific use case and you are willing to accept the shortcomings that accompany buying older technology (less support, higher chance of component failure, more expensive repair if parts are not common, etc.).

The rebates typically don't work on refurbished components. The fine print for those coupons/rebates should clearly state what is covered & what is excluded. Good luck!

2025 not that far away. That is when hacking windows 11 onto a machine will possibly stop working. Newer apps may not even work on hacked machines.

You should be able to get a refurbished quad core for about this price. Not saying Dells are not good they are good.

Guess if you only need if for two years go for it.

What's going ti happen in 2025?

I think this is a good laptop for someone in a tight budget, or as a secondary laptop etc. For browsing and light office work.

Also i second using linux os like ubuntu, it's so smooth, and so compatible with the hardwares nowadays (not comparable to linux 20 years ago which was not as userfriendly) if you don't need any special software that's not available on linux.

6th gen CPUs are pretty slow these days. Passmark score about 3000. The only saving grace on this model is that the keyboard is actually pretty nice. So if you do a lot of typing, this would be a nice model

EOL for Windows 10. Perfect time for MS to stop allowing these old processors to work on Windows 11. They warned security updates would stop just not real clear on when. Perhaps nothing will happen but that seems unlikely to me giving the pass of MS. They lied Windows 10 was the last version.

If you go to Linux then no need to worry at all.

They are decent laptops and should work fine for most things. You can add DDR if you need it. They can most likely even do rather hard office work with more memory.
