    It has Windows 10 Pro x64 already on it, so...

    I am that buddy and foo has guided me through some misadventures..I've always thought of myself as pretty geeky but this one proves that I am most certainly not..this laptop was slooooooow with Win 10 Education installed so a user suggested Linux..I installed Ubuntu and it runs amazingly well and I regret not knowing more about it as I want to use this for work in the field and programs like TeraTerm are not supported..I'm sure there are alternatives that do the same but the learning curve is too trying at this stage..I tried putting multiple versions of Win10 back on but it's, as John above (dig that Mr. Natural Avatar,old fan) says, lacking a driver that can see the 64gb emmc at final setup phase...not sure how to institute an .exe file @ the point it says "load drivers" but I will play with it and thanks, think I am on the right road now!

    LTSC is apt to be as slow as Edu. This was my experience with similar devices. The problem lies with the eMMC device which has very few lanes of data transfer.

    Last year i've installed 2016 LTSB x86 (before LTSC was released) on a Lenovo device with just 2GB RAM and a 32GB eMMC, that ran fine.

    My wife has an Asus T100TA (2GB ram, 32GB eMMC) and she runs 1903 x86 Home, also no complaints (she only plays the hated store games;):D)

    I do believe they will run fine. I only noticed no noticeable speed increase between LTSC, Pro vanilla, or Pro stripped.

    Stripping mostly doesn't improve speed, disabling some services might, but my benchmarks from last year didn't show much difference between all the SKUs, the chopped ones i've tested were discarded because of major basic problems.

    Thank you gents.....worked a charm..they have even edited the Wiki @ Slickdeals to include a link for the drivers as I obviously wasn't the only one who had problems trying to "upgrade"...while it is no speed demon it def runs cleaner than the original OS...I intend it only as a laptop for field work and it will serve that purpose just fine, it is well worth the price paid regardless of the whiner in deal forum who must have expected a threadripper for the money!...Much appreciated!
