    Today? Try to plan ahead for your next purchase.

    If you're worried about warranty/service, would Latitude 3379 do (no HDD slot, ticks other boxes)? There are not many options that provide business service at this price.

    The hardware will do, but you lose the business service.

    In case you picked up this model due to the newer platform/processor, the i5-8250U is a noticeably more powerful CPU, but I doubt you'll notice the difference because your workload won't be heavily multi-threaded.

    That depends on what you're doing with the computer. "School, word& internet" doesn't tell us much. Microsoft Word doesn't have high computing requirements (a netbook or even a smartphone can run it) and internet performance is more of a function of your ISP connection plan than anything on the computer itself (gigabit Ethernet and Wireless-AC mean nothing if you're on a dial-up internet plan, for example).

    What sort of software do you plan on using, specifically?
