Windows 10: Does Windows 10 work on an old computer?

    I have an 2007-ish laptop (dualcore 1.5Ghz, 2GB ram, integrated intel gfx) and it is really sluggish with 8, 8.1 and 10. I blame the metro interface. You might see a difference with dedicated rather than integrated graphics, but for more efficient use I'd prefer something alot simpler. I have Linux Mint xfce on my old laptop which works well and is stable.

    I'm running Windows 10 on a Dell Optiplex 945 Microtower:

    1.86 Ghz Intel Core 2Duo
    5 GB RAM
    Stock graphics.

    It works but it's not pretty. Once I can get a Core2Quad in it and a half decent graphics card, I think it will work just as good as something thats a few years old.

    You can get the 775 Intel Core 2 Quad Core if your motherboard was made to use it. I have a Lenovo M58P 1637 with a Quad core, but the issue is that it will run hotter than it does with a Dual Core, even with the upgraded heatsink with fan.

    I went on the Dell forums and many people have upgraded to a C2Q as long as it's a Kentsfield and its a 1066 bus speed.
