The MSRP is $99 which is what I paid here but the price keeps going up here at Amazon. I have seen it here for $99 to $184 so you really have to shop well. You can get this from Lenovo directly for $99 shipped free. Edit: I see it is now only $89 at Amazon which is the price it should have been all the time

I have had several similar pc’s and this one has features which make it stand out. First, the fan is absolutely a necessity in this type pc. Second the micro SDHC card is a nice feature especially in a pc with just 32 GB storage even though I have a 1TB external hard drive and USB Flash drives attached. Third, Windows 10 pre-loaded is a good thing. Fourth, there are no batteries which is good as batteries are doomed to failure. Fifth, the $99 price is perfect. Finally, a two year extended warranty is available for under $7. I am able to stream HD Video (WiFi) and listen on bluetooth speakers with no problems.

OK, CPU core temps are 123F.+ (49C.) at idle and 145F (62C.) under a load. That’s hot but not extreme. Fanless pc’s run much hotter. CPU speed is 1.583 GHz to 1.833GHz under a load.
