I am a Business major. I have used/use it with all parts of Office. Spreadsheets with active formulas 2600X120 and it doesn't miss a beat. Screen resizing is amazing. Will search the Internet as fast as your router will go.
- QuestionIs this good for school work as well ? And can I add more memory ? (2 Answers)Answers
Good question. This would be a good computer for a high school student. It is perfect for casual use, Microsoft Office, web surfing, social media, etc. I would not recommend this computer for any program that is demanding because it has a basic processor. As far as RAM goes, you cannot expand it because the memory slots are not accessible.

- QuestionCan you add extra ram to this pc? (3 Answers)Answers
Yes you can bump the RAM to 8GB. This PC is a little harder to open but it is accessible. You need to follow the instructions in the Maintenance and Service Guide (which is a 90 page wonderful document on HP's site - I think HP has one for each of their various models). In short you remove 12 screws from the bottom, flip it over and pull up the keyboard and remove a couple ZIF ribbon cables (a little tricky as keyboard is held in by tabs) - but you're using the same procedure a Best Buy Geek would do as you follow the steps in the manual. I replaced the HDD with an SDD I cloned using a free program called EASEUS Backup. Wow is it faster now. Anyway the memory is under a shield and their is one slot so you would have to remove the 4GB and insert an 8GB. It will give you better performance but not the uplift you get with an SSD. The memory spec from the same manual I mentioned is 8-GB (PCL3, 12800, 1600; for use only on computer models equipped with an Intel Pentium or Intel Celeron processor) p/n: 693374-005 The 4 GB is DDR3L-1600 SDRAM (1 x 4 GB), the 4GB p/n should be: 691740-005 Note: if you follow the steps to swap in the SSD, it will tell you to remove the power cable from the battery and also another ZIF ribbon connector on the HDD. Lastly if you go to the HP site you can find the Hardware and Maintenance Manual at http://support.hp.com/us-en/search?q=m-u001dx%20Maintenance%20and%20Service%20Guide&filter= scroll down and select the document called: HP Pavilion x360 m1 Convertible PC (model numbers m1-u100 through m1- u199 and m1-u000 through m1-u099) - Maintenance and Service Guide.

- QuestionCan this computer run programming Applications like SQL server 2012, Eclipse IDE and Visual studio Express (2 Answers)Answers
Good question. This computer is capable of running all of those programs because it meets the minimum system requirements to run them. However, I recommend a laptop that is a step up from this model because this is an entry level laptop. Something with an Intel Core i3 processor would be a better option. I hope this helps.
