OS should always be on the fastest drive available. Because it is the drive the machine interacts most frequently. In your case it is the 256gb SSD.

Hi guys, I purchased an e485 with ryzen 3 2200u, I only need to use the laptop for excel/macros and accounting programs, I saw the question posted about ryzen 3 being duo core, am I ****ed?

Also what wifi card should I buy and where can I buy them?

Don't worry Ryzen 3 for your usage is more than sufficient.
Yes it is dual core APU but the graphic part can trash Intel UHD easily.

If you are not tech savvy than just use the included Wifi.
Cuz not all Wifi card can work on this laptop.

It will be installed on the first drive on the order page.

Just pulled the trigger and ordered one at $697.03 after $300 student discount.

Lenovo E585 AMD Ryzen 7. 8GB RAM. FHD. 1TB HDD, No SSD. 65W Adaptor.

Kept it simple and upgrade components slowly. Wallet limited.

Good job! I ordered one 2500U for a mate and got Linux Mint installed on a self-installed m.2 nvme drive! This is easily the best buy of the year!
