Question If any systems should be sold with Optane, then this would be one.

Reading the reviews, this is a ($300) Celeron with a (7200RPM, at least) HDD.

Combined with the factory OEM install with McAfee, it seems like some of the reviewers thought that it was a bloated pig.

This really sounds like a job for Optane(tm)!

Sadly, the extra $25 cost would likely be significant, because then the Celeron PC with 4GB of DDR4 wouldn't be able to hit the $300 price-point. Or maybe it could, just lower profits for HP.

Selling systems with only a HDD is IMHO somewhat disgraceful these days.
