Yep, will need an external disc drive. Sadly, a lot of systems are forgoing drive bays now. Not really sure why as they’re incredibly useful. They also take less space on the desk than all these external hubs we now need as we keep running out of USB ports 😛
Yep, Chrome. The tablet didn’t come with a browser at all, it was pretty bare bones but there were no bones about it. Yeah, haven’t had any issues on the desktop at all with the cache. I used to clear it after every session but haven’t done that in ten years and haven’t noticed any slowdowns like I thought there’d be.
