Hi Jim

I wouldn't by that one as one comment say it comes with 12.04 (which is out
of support) and you can't easily update it because of the driver for the
Realtek wifi card.

I would go for any other computer that will run 14.04 or 16.04 out of the
box, whether or not I had to overwrite the Windows on it.  You don't save
much money by going for one with Ubuntu on it.
