This is a brand new Acer laptop. The original 1TB drive has been replaced with the ultra reliable Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD and is used as an external usb storage drive. The SSD has been loaded with Linux Mint 18.3. The two most common reasons for laptop failure are bad drive and corrupted OS. We've just eliminated those 2 problems.
Unless you absolutely have to use proprietary Windows software, this is the perfect laptop. Linux Mint systems are the ultimate in reliability. Most devices are plug and play (drivers included). Upgrades cover all installed applications. Computers should be a joy to use, not an endless and costly headache. If you're disillusioned with consumer-grade hardware and proprietary software, then it's time to step up. There's no registration and no licensing either; you don't need permission to use a Linux system on your computer. Linux systems don't get viruses, malware, registry errors, file fragmentation, slow down, or crash, and Linux doesn't spy on you.
Linux Mint software is free. There are 86000 program packages available for download using the software manager. This computer is not for Quickbooks or Office 365. It comes with Libra Office which opens Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. This computer does everything you'd want a computer to do except run expensive proprietary software which most people don't need.
