    Hardware:
    Intel Celeron J1900 Quad Core 2.42Ghz
    Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail)
    4GB DDR3 system memory
    500GB HDD

    Current OS = Windows 7 Ultimate x64

    Should I stick with what I got or go for it?

    10 Pro Preview x64

    Higher specs than me in every regard so it should work fine. As brummyfan says give it a go.

    Thread Starter

    My computer came with windows 8.1 Pro x64 but downgraded to windows 7 ultimate x64 due to compatibility issues.

    Edit: just noticed there was an expiration date on the preview so i have a big urge to not want to upgrade.

    Win10 Home and Pro, Win10 Insider Preview, Win7 Home, Linux Mint

    I have Win10 TP on a Dell Inspiron 530S [SFF/Small Form Factor] computer with an Intel 2.20GHz that originally came with Vista, seems to be okay on 4GB RAM and 500GB HDD. I have only one small issue and it most likely is because the computer has an Add-in DVI Video card and Win10 is also picking up the built-in VGA adapter as an Unknown device. It's not a problem as the built-in is not usable. [I saved the computer from going to the recycler.]

    All Microsoft beta's have expirations. If this is a problem for you, then I would suggest forgetting about ever installing and using any beta Microsoft software. Ever.

    That's routine for Microsoft. They'll becoming out with a new version (with a new expiration date) long before this one expires.

    If 7 was any indicator they'll probably release two betas and a rc.
