Looks like quite a nice little ultra-portable. What's it running now? Still on W8.1 or something else?

Windows 8.1 with Bing.
The problem is they use a 64bit processor with 32 bit eufi. So currently you can't install/run any linux distro by default.
You would need a 64 bit distro using an 32bit grub version.... or something.

Well that sucks quite a bit!

Can I ask you a quick question, have you considered upgrading the RAM/SSD on it? If so is it easy to do? I've seen a tear-down to do a screen replacement but the video didn't show the RAM/SSD slots so I wanted to see if it was user-upgradeable.

I don't have it (i want to buy it if its possible to get some sort of linux , or evolve os on it).
It has an onboard flash ssd so thats not upgradable and im not sure if the memory is also upgradable.

Well that's no fun if you can't upgrade the memory or hdd.
