I would assume it's a Cortex-A52 design given the 3ZW designation--maybe a single core in a new package that allows the same 512MB memory-stacking trick used on present Zero models.

I have a leftover RPi 1 Model B with 512MB of RAM.
I would like to run it for web browsing. I mostly need Wikipedia browsing, actually. No fancy WebGL or supercool sites with effects needed.
However, I do need the browser to be "decent" w.r.t. layout, being recognized as WebKit or something-compatible.
I tried Raspbian Buster with Chromium, Midori and Epiphany - none can even reach the Wikipedia home page. Too low on resources probably.
Dillo is just wayy to lightweight a browser. Wikipedia does not even recognize it and turns on mobile browsing. I don't want that.
I tried Kweb, and this one works. Pffew. This is great, but I feel it's struggling a bit.
Raspbian Buster, once booted, has 100MB of RAM left. I can't even sudo apt-get update/upgrade. I get a E: defective paquets error (any idea why?)
512MB of RAM is not much, but I could try to improve the situation.
Would you have any distro/browser recommendation? Kweb is really kiosk mode (no Desktop GUI) with a minimal OS would be great.
