Just got my E-15 from Amazon Prime Day deal (under 3 bills); I also bought a Crucial BX500 240GB 3D NAND SATA 2.5-Inch Internal SSD ($30), and swapped it with the 1-T HDD, which came with the E-15: I never even booted into it. Then I plugged in the power, ethernet, and an external USB DVD/CD Driver with Mint 19.1-C already on it, and ran it after hitting F2 and instructing it to boot from the DVD/CD Drive. I did the OS install, then ran updates, then installed Chrome Browser, Asunder, Handbrake, Gparted, and deleted a few programs I never use, and pow; it's awesome! With a SATA-to-USB cable (got 3 of them), later on I will wipe the 1-T HDD (via a format with Gparted to Ext4) and then use it as an external storage for movies.
