Edit: oops @deanhills =)

lol This weekend discovered a dirt cheap laptop with generally low specs, but note it has a whopping 32 SSD!  So I guess the SSD is used for processing rather than storage.  AND to cope with anti-virus corporations.  Kaspersky will probably love it.  Tounge It's got free everything including Windows 10. Guess one would use cloud or external hard disks for actual storage.  It's on a super special in the UAE:  135 US$

With a standard solid state drive of up to 32GB, the ZED AIR can launch applications quicker, transfers files faster and provides better protection if you should ever bump or drop your PC.

I bought a 32GB SSD drive like 4-5 years ago for about 50 used. It worked good but since i used it for my Desktop i had to use a HDD as storage. Maybe I did something wrong but i didnt notice huge speed change. So I I have started using HDD again.

Anyone use Avast Free version here ?

I used Avast like 7-8 years ago I think and never liked it. It was doing way too many things that you expected become a real pain. So I had to find another free virus guard. I found Comodo is lot better and less problematic for user.

I am use it..
I've use it since 7 years old, 3 year with crack avast pro Tounge , and 4 years + (until now) use avast free.
I'm recommend to use avast, lower process (both cpu and ram), and extra security protection.

@deanhills I actually mentioned you because of the MalwareBytes thingy Cheese

Yea that laptop has great specs for the price but it would be unusable for things other than light browsing, social networks and video playback. The battery life seems nice from the various reviews. Pros: good battery life, lite, good price. Cons: 2gb ram, 32gb ssd, 64gb max microsd capacity, low resolution, no ac wifi, slow processor(imo). But without seeing how it performs i can't actually say if it's good or not. Cheese

Really ? When I used to it for first time like 7 years ago I had a really bad time. I had read few reviews and then installed it in several computers including mine. I was asked all my office mates to install another coz it was real pain. I couldn't blame them since I had same problem. It was blocking files and asking permission for every single thing etc.

True.  A giant of an anti-virus like Kaspersky would not work on it at all - like one would need to stick with the built-in Defender Anti-Virus that comes with Windows 10.  Today when I went to have a look at it again I was told that the 32 GB SSD would be barely enough to run the Windows 10.  So decided not to buy it as a gift.  Also heard that TouchMate is marketing the exact same spec laptop.  The sales agent says it's for young kids first users.  I was thinking it would be "cool" for South Africa.  When there's a break-in robbery or car hijacking the first things the robbers want are laptops and phones.  Once they've got a laptop and a phone they seem to be a little less adrenaline driven.  Mind you, maybe would be much cheaper to get a second-hand laptop instead with a built-in pepper spray device.  Tounge

Yea, if only it had a 64GB drive. Would have been an ok gift for a 5yo to abuse.
Huh, i've never been robbed but i rekon it's not pleasant. Dunno how i would react in that situation. Maybe a keychain pepper spray or like a small necklace or a phone cover Cheese. Lots of parasites these days, sadly.

@dudex yea its true, before i choose Avast as my antivirus. I've using other antivirus like avira (always lagging / hang when scanned), avg (proc/ram eater). Sry no offense.
Maybe the avast engine updated after they're got issues as you said. Now better, go try it haha

Well I should give it a try. I haven't had any problem with Comodo but it's good to keep an second option. I can try it on my laptop and also on few office computers. Does it have a firewall feature too ?
