Instead of a hard drive. Much faster.Posted 1 year agoToastyMember
I don’t see why not, we’ve upgraded everything to Windows 10 including an old Surface Pro 2 which is a similar spec.
On which note, you can still upgrade for free using:Posted 1 year agooldnpastitMember
If my experience is anything to go by, laptops bought for 15 year-olds tend to have quite a short and brutal life, brought to an abrupt end by a screen-to-floor collision experience. With more than one son.
I would try to get something either very cheap, like a Chromebook, or made of steel. Chromo would be OK, no need to go for anything fancy like 531.Posted 1 year ago

As i only really need a spreadsheet calculation program thing is thete a free one i can use thats compatible with excel on my Mac?
As a first time windows user since NT can you recommend me an Anti virus phishing everything package?
Windows Defender and Anti Virus is just fine, and all built in.
I like Libreoffice as a free office suite, and not had any file compatibility issues with PC version MS Office. I imagine if you are only doing simple financial type spreadsheets it’d be portable to/from Mac, but I’ve never done that personally.
You can buy multi-user versions of Office 365, but we installed the free first month on my daughters Laptop, then logged into her 6th form supplied account on that computer. It’s worked fine ever since, so one account across multiple PC’s seems OK, as long as you don’t mind sharing the cloud storage with the other user. I think.Posted 1 year agoxoraSubscriber

Yes and no, Libreoffice and Google docs are compatible to some degree but break down very rapidly when you get to complex operations. If your a power excel user then they won’t cut it (unless you port all your spreadsheets). But if you just looking for basic calcs on data they should be fine.Posted 1 year ago
