    Should I upgrade to windows 10?


    Hi all,

    I have myself a dell latitude D630 with windows 7 home premium that is genuine.

    I am thinking about upgrading to windows 10, however, will my laptop slow down a lot from upgrading? If not, will it slow down over time? I heard windows 10 will get more demanding as time goes on, is this true?

    Thanks all and I can't wait to see other thoughts since I can't make up my mind.

    You should make an image of your Windows 7 and upgrade to Windows 10 so that you get the digital entitlement while it is free. Then if you don't like it, restore the windows 7 image.

    Dell doesn't support the Windows 10 upgrade on the D630. That doesn't mean that the laptop is incompatible, but that you won't get any help from Dell with drivers.

    I don't personally recommend going from 7 to 10. 10 is more of an upgrade over Win 8, in my opinion, if only because the integration of the desktop and the interface once known as Metro is poor in 8 (or 8.1).

    If you choose to upgrade anyway (as Microsoft would prefer), you shouldn't see a slowdown in normal operation. I doubt that will change in the future.

    If you go with the upgrade, be sure to have a means of imaging your current Win 7 installation. It's the most reliable way of going back if you decide to do so. (Everyone should have that capability anyway, for backup.)

    Thanks all

    I will try to upgrade soon, but first, how do I make an image of my current system?

    I will now mark this as solved as I have no further questions.

Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
