Even if not used as a main computer it should have enough HD space to house the OS. Downloading and installing Windows updates is good practice, even when using a computer for internet use (think hackers and viruses). And if a user wanted to surf unprotected, it's getting harder for users to opt out of updates.
upgrade your hd with a dell 500 gb sata ss hd - Seagate FireCuda ST500LX025 - Hybrid hard drive - 500 GB - internal - 2.5-inch - SATA 6Gb/s - $54.95. Not a bad price for dell.

I upgraded the RAM to 8 GB and put in a 1 TB SATA SSHD and the spects said tyhe max hd was 500 GB so I had to split the partition on the 1tb hd and it worked ok. not a lot of money and you get a pretty good laptop for the cost.
I was told you can't install another drive in this unit, I was told this by dell support. Is this not the case? from what I gathered the 32gig storage is hard wired to the system board, again, is that not the case? I would love to install a 256gb ssd or something like that into this unit to get some more bang out of it.
Thanks for any information you an provide.
