    Most likely it's going to be a driver issue. 1GB of RAM is the minimum and will provide the minimal experience, but that requirement was the same for Windows 8. Usually 10 has not proven slower than 8.

    Look for a video card driver, chipset driver or a hard drive controller. These things can make a big difference.

    The tablet is not upgradeable. It ships with 1gb and upgrading is not an option, and you didn't answer the question I originally posted.
    Trucker answered your question. Microsoft recommends at least 4 GB RAM for Windows 10. From what I could see with his answer, he looked your tablet up and it should take 4 GB Maiximum.

    When people try to help you, you don't slap the around by saying, "You didn't answer the question I posted."

    You might as well downgrade to Windows 8.1. Ultimately, the only problem with Windows 8.1 is the tablet-optimized user interface, which isn't a problem for the tablet. So upgrading is not necessary for you.

    I am sure you can get Windows 10 to run with 1 GB of RAM, but it doesn't mean you should.

    Unless you enjoy self-flagellation, running Windows 10 on a more optimal system would be preferable.

    The tablet can be purchased with up to 4GB of RAM, but the RAM is soldered to the main board. So, like a Mac, you need to purchase it with the amount of ram you need right at the start, as you don't have the option to upgrade it later.

    For devices like that CleanMem Free is mandatory, just like CCleaner for any Windows.

    Depending on what you want to do with it, Win 10 works perfectly on a tablet with 1GB of RAM

    If you want to run lots of Win32 style apps at the same time then you will have issues, but using the store based apps mainly then its a non issue

    I use mine mainly with store apps (only win 32 are ms office) and it has no issues at all, the way the store apps are designed to suspend in the background is ideal for these types of devices

    CleanMemem is neither necessary nor desirable. Windows 10 has excellent memory management and will not benefit from such programs. With limited memory it is even more important that Windows memory manager be allowed to operate without interference.

    Unlike many other competing products CleanMem is relatively harmless but still not beneficial. Any perceived benefits are due to the placebo effect.

    I do understand how CleanMem works, and in greater detail than provided on the website.

    I've got an old Atom based PC with 2gb ram and it seems to be running slower on 10 than 8.1, I think it must be a driver thing because other PCs that I have are running faster.
    I've decided I will use Win 8.1 on this tablet. I have an OTG cable and Dell support sent me a reinstall thumbdrive with the Win 8.1 32bit Dell image.

    My apologies, I should have been specific. I do have Win 10 x86 installed, but compared to Win 8.1 x86 it is much slower.
    Really? One thing I will say for Windows 10 is that it ran surprisingly brisk when I tested it on an old HP Pentium IV system with 1 GB of RAM.
