I bought a similar model with the 4 gigs, but mine has 32 gig drive. I paid $249 for a refurb at Microcenter. Knowing what I now know after two weeks I would have bought this one instead. 16 gigs is way enough at this point and with the shdc 64 gig card, I have not even put a single file on it yet. I am a computer geek. I buy things like this to check them out.
If you roam during your work, get a tablet.
At work I use it over my laptop for google searches because it is so fast. My wireless is faster than my laptop on a 1 gig network for the Internet vs much slower wifi. My job now has me behind a desk all day so this is a side computer. I use it for google searches and checking my gmail. This is all about google. You have to adjust the screen size for some apps like facebook games to be smaller. My trendnet usb to rj45 cable works fine. The app store is meek at this point. Things you take granted from a regular computer is not available like paint, but there are online versions that are full of ads.
No malware, if you do not open it up for changes like putting on Linux, when you reboot all the malware seems to be erased like ransom ware.
Also the keyboard is missing many functions that most people are use to like taking a screen shot. There are guides of how you can do this with this machine. It is just not on the keyboard, but if you print out the guide you can do most of the functions available.
Before this computer I was using an IPAD3 and some Android tablets. The IPAD3 dropped connections to the wireless about 7 times a day. The Androids about 3 times. In two weeks, I have never lost a connection.
The speakers are ok, but good quality with my headphones for Pandora. And yes there is a pandora app.
Except for a few games and programs that work offline, everything is about running things in the chrome browser.
The Internet belongs to cats and the cat licking screen 2 versions, one good, the other ok, is why cats own the Internet.
We had a network outage the other day and I switched to T-Mobile and there I was, working. T-Mobile coverage has always been bad. But in an emergency it is nice to have for general Internet, not online movies.
