    or Intel? Atom? N280, FSB 667 MHz 1,66 GHz

    2 cores
    around 200 gb disc hdd

    I'd recommend trying with XFCE on a thumbdrive (Live) to see how it works. It will probably be fairly slow.

    Even though they support 64 bit (as you can see with ARK), 32 bit might be better with just 2Gb of RAM (32 bit is usually better in memory usage).

    If you want to use the system for ANYTHING usefully intensive, definitely go 32 bit.

    I haven't, 64 bit and 2 GB . It's ok for casual web browsing and the odd download but more than 4 tabs open it gets very laggy.

    Kali does bring a certain zip factor to using old hardware, I'll say that much for it, but don't expect miracles.

    I saw a better laptop offer with this parameters:
    Processor: Intel N2940 4 cores x 1.83 - 2.16Ghz
    RAM memory: 4GB DDR3 1600Mhz
    Bluetooth 4.0
    WIFI: Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260

    What should I pay attention to when choosing a laptop for kali?

    I would like the laptop to work smoothly.

    There are a few threads about that specific question.

    I wouldn't use an atom CPU for anything except a router.
