I guess it's time to take back the low end market as well.

I feel sorry for Google Chromebooks.

Have fun with a 32GB SSD once you have Windows and Office on it.

Use OneDrive, just like you'd use Google Drive on a Chromebook.

Seems like one of the main benefits of getting this Windows PC is being able to run applications that you couldn't on the Chromebook. Hard to do that when there's no space left for programs.

Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.

Office 365, One Drive, you're done. You have almost everything you could possibly want from a Windows PC except games. Nobody said this was intended to be gaming quality.

Office 365 installs the full Office 2013 Pro onto your device, so not sure how that would help in regards to storage space. However, on my Asus T100, with Office 2013 Pro installed, I still had ~10GB of available space. Then, I have a 64GB MicroSD for my desktop, downloads, OneDrive sync folder, and libraries. Works pretty well for me. Still enough space to install most applications I will need from a device of that category.

You must be very narrow minded about PC usage.
