    Windows 10

    Who has the oldest Machine that runs Windows 10?


    So ive heard that Windows 10 can run on some fairly old PC's Let see who here is running the oldest setup with Windows 10 installed

    I have a laptop, a Dell Insprion 1520, which was bought brand new in May, 2008. It had Windows Xp on it. I then did an upgrade to Windows 7. I took the free upgrade to Windows 10.

    So, anyone here have an older setup than mine that is running Windows 10?

    That is interesting!

    I have a system from 2007 I believe. It also came with Windows XP and I have Windows 7 on it currently. No changes to the hardware done. On Windows 7 -compared to current PCs- I would say it feels slow.

    How is your old PC running with Windows 10? Would you say it is slower than it has been with Windows 7? Or is it about the same? (I won't ask if it got faster... ;-) )

    I am not sure, if I should upgrade this old machine. I mean: I could - but would I be happy with the result? In terms of speed?

    Perfectly usable, better in some ways than Windows 7 and 8 on more modern processors (no SpeedStep throttling).
