    Yes, but remember, this is not the final version. There will be bugs, problems and other uncertainties. In addition MS will monitor your key strokes to uncover problems. You would not want to use the OS for anything that was personal or confidential. You may double boot or use 10 in a VM and keep your other OS.

    Okay. Well, I use mine for personal use. I just hate waiting.

    Now, can you or someone look at this link https://gigaom.com/2015/01/26/got-a-...e-some-effort/? I have an Acer. Is it considered a low-cost laptop?

    I will assume that you ask the question to determine if you can use 10. Find out for sure with the upgrade advisor

    I ran the Windows 8.1 Upgrade Assistant. Supposedly, Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 have nearly identical requirements. I will upload my Windows 8.1 Upgrade Assistant results, and let you all have a look.

    Here is the Windows 8.1 Upgrade Assistant. Again, supposedly Windows 10 will have nearly identical requirements as Windows 8.1.

    You have asked this same question in numerous threads. Yes, you have to wait! No one knows the final version requirements until we get it. Relax and enjoy the preview, you will be fine.

    I am sorry about that Dude. Should I try out the Preview then? This is a personal computer. I hope I am not upsetting you.

    Not at all Jesse, the choice is yours. Read the tutorials, try a virtual version, or dual boot. It's your choice. I did not mean to offend you.
