Can you take it back? If you can, run don't walk and beg them to give you your money back and buy a computer with a real processor and a decent amount of memory, and some storage. That laptop has the Celeron N3050 and 2 gigs of non-upgradeable RAM, and a puny 32 gig hard drive which also cannot be upgraded, which is just rubbish. I mean it is $265US which will not buy a decent cell phone. It is a dirty secret and not popular to hear but the computer market is a race to the bottom; everybody trying to sell computers as cheap as possible and to do so corners must be cut and that computer is a circle. No corners at all.

Good call. Don't blame HP. I mean, it is what it is and may be enough for some people but try to get a laptop with at least an i3 processor, 4 gigs RAM and a 500 gig hard drive. You will be much happier with it and it will be useful so much longer it is actually a better buy.
