The little machine is powered by an Intel Atom Quad-core processor. It will run on the latest Windows 8.1. With 2 GB of RAM and the fast processor the user needn’t be in doubt about the Splendo’s processing multitasking capabilities. It also has 32 GB of in-built storage. There are doubts as to whether the Splendo will be able to run the soon-to-come Windows 10 O.S. Although Microsoft has stated that any device running Windows 8.1 can be upgraded to Windows 10, it has also stated that some 32 GB devices might not support Windows 10. So, in case you are set on using Windows 10, you might want to wait for iBall to make a statement regarding the issue.
