Solución Elegida

The SSD is soldered as it is eMMC. The RAM is also soldered and most of these only include 2GB of RAM. You can get 4GB, but only on the Stream 13 - which is more expensive.

The problem with these systems was the Windows 8.1 with Bing licensing requirements - you can’t have more then 32GB of storage and 4GB of RAM - most only use 2GB of RAM to be compliant and meet price margins. Technically any type of storage works as long as the storage requirements are met from the OEM. However, eMMC is popular due to the low cost since these are disposable devices — even though they can use a M.2 SSD and if the user upgrades, that’s not on the OEM.
Note: Even then, these would only take SATA M.2 drives due to the chipset, but a M.2 2242 SSD like what they use in some Enterprise Chromebooks would work. 2280 may be too large for these, unless they did some clever engineering.
The other issue is these were meant to compete with Chromebooks, which is why they impose such requirements. However, it also is used as a OneDrive upsell. These Win10 Cloudbooks compete against in same market, but with better specs.

These 8.1 with Bing notebooks remind me of the Office 2010 Starter era when you could keep buying these every year for a new license, but the only difference is the offer is now a 1 year Office 365 license vs a lifetime copy. Office 2010 Starter only came with low end PCs (think Celeron, with barely any RAM) and was a direct attempt to sell Office licenses to remove the restrictions. Everyone who wasn't eligible did the right thing and bought it, and didn’t pirate the leaked Techspot installer. Right? Right? I hope you bought a legal copy in that case! /s

Due to the unique Microsoft imposed RAM and SSD limitations, they’re not upgrade friendly, and are basically disposable. However, the 2GB limit HP stuck to on these was due to cost reduction AND the Microsoft requirements, since they were chosen due to cost, and caution to not run afoul of what Microsoft required from this generation. These 8.1 with Bing systems are dead end.
Now I will give Microsoft credit here as much as this is a beatdown of how they directly generated millions of pounds of eWaste with the first generation. The 10 S devices can have up to 64GB and 4GB is more feasible than the older ones due to the allowances being improved this time around. In addition, the restrictions can be removed for free on 10 Home S devices. That was not possible with 8.1 with Bing’s search engine lock. Now the eWaste issue is on the OEMs, as many dump S Mode on laptops that only last 2-3 years due to being so low end.

What @nick wrote is true. Although I was able to install Windows 10 Single Language on the eMMC and move all the links to User Documents, Downloads, Desktop, Videos and Images to a 16GB SD Card as D drive. I even installed there, Office and some other applications. This way I was able to keep 4GB of free storage in the C Drive while 9GB was free in the D Drive.

Due to the disk being SSD the speed of the system is quite fast, considering the 2GB on RAM.

Hope it helps.

These things seriously give me Office Starter vibes, especially with the hindsight I have from the Starter fiasco. It was a total de-javu, but instead of a leaked installer anyone who wanted it could get online since the files weren't restricted you have eWaste. At least with Office Starter, there was no physical waste. The difference is these cannot be upgraded, so the Office Starter thieves who put it on good machines will not touch these outside of getting one year of Office 365, if it isn't permanently reduced to 3 months these days and will never get another since you can only do it once. That's not to say I want to put anyone who bought one into a shame corner if it's all you can afford but still, you can't deny this class of laptop is always going to be disposable and subpart.

These things are a wasteful class of product. Does Microsoft really think people will want these once you can no longer get the 1 year? I was looking into one before the 1 year offer was no longer guaranteed and it would have been my only one.

Now I will give Microsoft credit where it's due and they realized the 8.1 requirements were junk, but the 10 spec is marginally better and you lose the 1 year of 365 per machine so one step forward two steps back.

With my Ubuntu 22.04 I see that I'm using 2 GB of memory, but when I use command "sudo dmidecode -t memory", it gives me a maximum capacity of 8 GB. Can I trust this value?
