The ram is soldered on. I'm not sure if you can upgrade eMMc storage. https://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/IdeaPad/IP_Flex_3_Chrome_11M836?M=82KM0003US

I haven't tried it out myself, but I have a theory that it's not good to use an HDMI cable with this laptop. This laptop only has 1 usb-c 2.0 port that is used for both external display (USB-C to HDMI) and charging. Meaning, I don't think you can charge the laptop and use an external display at the same time.

Here's the spec sheet: https://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/IdeaPad/IP_Flex_3_Chrome_11M836?M=82KM0003US

The N4000 is quicker for browsing and video but I've read a few times that the Mediatek handles Android apps a little better. I actually returned a MT8183C Lenovo about 6 months ago after comparing it to my N4000 and N4020 Chromebooks. The MT8183C can barely crack 10,000 on Googles Octane test which I consider the bare minimum for a Chromebook today. That said, this is a nice deal for a budget convertible Chromebook with a touchscreen.

What's your use case? Is this a variation of RPi with a touchscreen?

You can install roblox using Chrome OS. Lots of videos on you tube showing how to do this.

Got this for my aging mother. I like that i can access it remotely, add Duo, and use Google meet, games, etc. The touchscreen makes it easy for my mom to touch the icon rather than accidently tapping a mouse and opening a can of worms.

https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/p/la...82km0003us *Look at the link below for a more detailed spec sheet.
These are the official specs. The Best Buy specs are kinda sus like how they called the Processor an "MT8173c".

*Edit: Oh yea, can someone check out if the USBs are 3.1/3.2 or 2.0? Best Buy specs say the USBs are 3.1/3.2 while the official Lenovo sites say they're both 2.0 (Check the image at the bottom).

**Edit: Ok, so the USB-A and USB-C ports are both 2.0 based on the specs sheet Frown What are the chances they're wrong?
https://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/I...82KM0003US

***Edit: I just realized. If there's only 1 USB-C port and the sole USB-C port is used for power or hdmi. ̶I̶ ̶g̶u̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶d̶e̶v̶i̶c̶e̶ ̶c̶a̶n̶'̶t̶ ̶b̶e̶ ̶c̶h̶a̶r̶g̶e̶d̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶h̶a̶v̶e̶ ̶a̶n̶ ̶e̶x̶t̶e̶r̶n̶a̶l̶ ̶d̶i̶s̶p̶l̶a̶y̶ ̶a̶t̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶s̶a̶m̶e̶ ̶t̶i̶m̶e̶.̶ Apparently, it can be charged and also have an external display by using a dongle that splits the USB-C port into multiple ports.

I also bought this the last go around and mainly use for streaming video while working on my company computer. Installed a few games from the Play Store and all have worked great. Not slow at all and 4GB of RAM is more than enough for a Chromebook (so shutup you "WhAt R u GoInG tO dO wItH 4gB of RaM" people). Touch screen picture and response is outstanding for a $100 machine. Screen collects finger prints quickly.

I mainly bought because I had surgery on my left arm. Can minimally use it for the time being and rather drop this than my Samsung S8 Tab. Actually been a godsend because the screen is infinitely adjustable as compared to my Samsung folio case which only has three positions. Keyboard is decent, and folds out of the way for tablet use.

And no, I do not think Raspberry Pi is any how involved.
