Hi Axel, now that eMMC has reared its ugly head that is probably the main sticking point - you may have enough space etc., but let's remember that eMMC hardware is not designed to be modified - It's a throwaway device like a Chromebook - as soon as anything goes on those beasties you can bin it as literally everything is soldered on to the motherboard, memory, storage, etc. If you really want to run GNU/Linux on a new piece of kit you need to consider purchasing 'grey machine' or building one yourself, or purchase dedicated kit from any of the following suppliers. As I don't know where you are based I'll point you to all possible suppliers:

https://zareason.com/Laptops/

https://system76.com/laptops

Mhm, ok. So, I will try the Core edition and the Lite. If it doesn't work, I will install Window$ 8.1. Oh, and is not possible to install Zorin Desktop on Ubuntu ? Like Deepin ?

You could using VirtualBox or DualBoot but on this particular kit you will have major problems due to lack of space (storage of 32 Gb really isn't a viable option. You could attempt to put on external drive which you connect to an ordinary computer, minus the hard drive, then you could attempt to put EasyBCD by NeoSmart on to boot to the external drive - but suspect that everything will be UEFI enabled on this kit so you could be on a hiding to nothing. I would be tempted to trade it in against a reasonably priced i3. ;)

Mhm, I understand. I installed Windows 8.1. Is it possible to install Zorin on a micro SD Card?
