    I have a $50 + shipping netbook with a SSD I can sell u.
    The SSD is almost worth the price of the laptop.

    Very nice system! Be sure to pull that Hyper 212 off the motherboard before you box it up or ship it or it WILL come off and break a lot of other stuff by the time the receiver gets it.

    OP, I saw that Winbook and thought it was a steal for what it was. A w10 licensed system at that price with any decent specs will be hard to find, especially with support. (y)

    Agreed.
    The system I had for him is a g3258 acer tower, but it seems like it goes to sleep and then won't wake up after until you hard power down. I had it running fine for days until it went to 'sleep' and he's absolutely not tech savvy so I don't want him having to deal with the BS too much.

    Turn sleeping off--problem solved. :D

    I actually disable hibernation and sleeping on all my systems. If it's on, I'll be using it. And it will be off if I'm not. SSDs make boot time trivial these days.

    I assume he also doesn't have a monitor, keyboard, and a mouse as well?
