Hi everybody, nice offer for a low budget machine and therefore I am having hard times to withstand. Do you think the specs will be a problem to install Peppermint as the only OS? Edit: I ask because of the 32GB EMMC drive. I have no idea if this may cause trouble during the installation (lack of support?).

Lenovo 120S-14IAP 81A500ACGE 14", Intel Pentium N4200, 4GB Onboard Ram (LPDDR4 2400), 32GB EMMC, W10

I reckon this should give you a clue

I'd expect the 14IAP to act similarly.

eMMC shouldn't be a problem in and of itself.

Linux has no problems booting from memory cards (or any other type of flash memory) as long as the BIOS presents it as a block device and supports booting from it .. and in this case (as the primary drive) I'd be pretty certain the BIOS will, otherwise NO OS would be able to boot from it.

Obviously I can't talk for the compatibility of the rest of the hardware though.
