Review of Walmart's $140 laptop

This review of an absolute bottom-of-the-barrel laptop is quite interesting read. It demonstrates that two gigabytes of memory and 32 GB of storage are not enough to run Windows 10.

Still would be satisfactory specs for a netbook running either an older version of Windows or Linux :lol:

The Ars reviewer actually tested Fedora on there. I think it could be okay if you run really barebones apps, but even running YouTube at 720p would be a struggle I'm guessing.
is it stealth? ;)
