Both Gnome (the `desktop` bundle) and Xfce4 (deprecated) are available,
and with Intel HD graphics in your system you shouldn't have issues.
Yes It has got an Intel HD graphics.

No, but this is not necessarily a problem. The tweaking we do for
performance are generally also beneficial for power, since we use
policies like keeping the server in idle, reduce memory usage and
finishing work quicker.
Good to know.
The gnome desktop may contain some additional options and tools to
adjustments, as well as powertop. Things like suspend to disk are
however not supported.
Does it much difficult to enable it in ClearLinux? Once enabled could
it break something else?

I have experience running clearlinux on celeron based laptops (2015
models) for a personal project (school owned equipment - not paid for by
Intel) where I tought a class using clearlinux booted off a USB stick
(16gb storage) with similar RAM, and there were no issues with those
resource constraints. The students in the project even used gimp,
blender (flatpak based versions) on clearlinux without issues.
Thanks for reassured me!
In the office, I also have ClearLinux running on a Minnowboard Max
ram/atom processor/6gb storage) and it's running a web browser with
xfce4 without issues.
That's an also interesting thing for use ClearLinux in little appliances!
Just out of curiosity, Does it work with GNOME? If xfce4 is deprecated
I don't expect to use it in future...
Thanks a lot Auke!
