    At this price it would be worth a few more dollars to set Gram up on a Chromebook or any other sub-200 dollar laptop. Gram is still trying to master the double-click. This is too steep a learning curve.

    This Xtra PC is a gimmick from around 2015. Ubuntu is old and free. The USB stick from Xtra PC is a rip off and they should make a Manjaro version as you guys pointed out. I'm surprised that Sandisk hasn't sued them for copyright infringement. I'd rather put my money towards a tablet for Gran. My grandma can't read engrish and has issues with reading small fonts anyway. Tapping on a tablet makes it easier for her to use instead of a mouse. I'm pretty sure you can pick up an i7 2600 Sandybridge Lenovo/IBM or DELL shitbox for $70 US with Windows 10 from Craigs list/Gummy or Ebay anyway!

    The thing is once you create that USB image of the Linux distro you want to use you can make multiple copies without having to do anything extra so the first one I can understand but any sold after that one is pure profit minus the cost of the USB flash drive

      Also if you want to watch IDclips on, say, an Inspiron 6000 (Tested, it's a little buggy, but still great), you could try SMTube (preferably on linux for better performance)

    The Xtra-PC Pro is just a SanDisk Ultra. LOL
    The cherry on top of that joke is that you are using some customized Linux distro in which the original is available for free.

    I thought the main point of this "resurrection" is having a clean OS without all the unnecessary trash software and files piled up in it throughout the years.
    Many peoples hardware is not that bad, but still works awfully slow because of all the poor life choices they make. Like not unchecking that "Avast" antivirus button in the free software installed.

    The truth is ... you guys know a ton of shit about computers but nobody cares about grandma to have a simple operating system. Where she can check pictures of grandkids in Facebook, check silly emails, etc.
    Someone did: extra PC.
    Now. Grandma prefers to pay 80 dollars to a stranger than to a grandkid that has no patience to help her with her old laptop.
    That’s the truth.
