      On with the testing....Windows First.
      An easy Start Cortana was chatty all why thru the start asking all these Questions about the set up.
      First time I have experienced that Talk thru, Different I guess.

      All easy with setup, WINDOWS, WIFI and the bits to get us started..

      As this is a Dual operating system 2/32GB, not much room for Windows 10 or free space
      10GB used of the 14GB partition available so no major BIG updates this day.

      Unit performed well for what it is, so Major lagg or issues installed a few apps to testing and was ok.


      All activated and OK

      No much space

      System Info

      HW Info

      Antutu

      Crystal Diskmark

      Aida64 bit of a torture test was OK

      Stop

      GPU

      Memory


      That went smooth enough with no problems all worked.

        On to testing the Android 5 side of things, again pretty good, Android on Intel a forgotten thing, works ok in most cases.
        Works well, numbers shows it can do it pretty well and performance and operation to me was much the same as running pure android. if not smoother.

        Well that was a let down launcher, Nothing

        Installed apps

        System Info

        DRM Info

        Storage and Ram Truth


        Antutu


        CPU-Z

        A1SD


        I should say when the unit boots you have the option to select WIndows or android with an Icon....
        In windows there is a boot to Android Icon so easy to switch between
        .
        Cmos settings very sparse not much at all, 4 or so screen of basic setting
        Video Playback on windows Ok Netflix also.

        So what to do...do you remove the Android Partition to get more space for WIndows 10
        Works well as is, add a sd card for more storage etc, ext hdd and that internal USB port might be able to hide a USB stick in there


        For what this is had a lot worse,
        If you want a Basic unit for under I think $80us, this would have to have some use.
        Office, Internet casual games, lots of things....


        And thanks to Gearbest.

          Not a bad player.
          It can be very useful if you know what you are doing and get the best of both worlds.

          Not many android media boxes match the antutu score ,or even the internal storage and ram speeds. Should be good at medium 3d games too.

          Windows can be also useful for apllications, web browsing,youtube,blu ray menus etc.

          I am expecting it! For 67€ it is a great bargain.

              I'm planning to buy this one and want to use it as a NAS.

              Can somebody tell me the R/W speeds with usb 3.0 external hdd?
              Also is there any way to remove the android so that I can use full 32gb for windows?

              Any help would be appreciated.

              Regards,

                  I'm curious what does the bios look like ?
                  Can you boot from usb / usb3 ? (install win10 to usb3 ssd for example)

                  Also can you install linux/grub (i don't care about hdmi / wifi issues).
                  AZW mentioned some "andoid/windows bios" versus a "linux bios" ? that does not make much sense to me..

                  thx

                      Hi everybody!
                      Does anyone know if it would be any problem to install a Windows removing all the previous partitions (android and windows) on the system? Would it be better to install a Windows 32bits instead of 64 in relation to performance and memory consumption of the system?
                      Thank you.

                          Hi,
                          Can you boot from a pen-drive?
                          If the answer is positive I can give you a copy that I made of this device with Clonezilla. Try to boot from a Clonezilla USB: http://clonezilla.org/clonezilla-live.php
