    The usual, minimum requirements, recommended requirements...
    SLAT, VT-x, even better.
    But for as long as 800x600* is a supported resolution, I'll upgrade for sure.
    (yep, it is!)

    Interesting part are the modern variations of 800x480 & 854x840 (check mobile devices).

    *THE resolution of resolutions was removed a while back, if I recall correctly Win7 had 1024x768 as minimum recommended.
    Now that it's back on paper, don't look the wrong way: this is good for the UI.
    This has to do with the mobile devices allowing the resolution on smaller screens.

    Yes, of course any current Windows 10 user will be able to clean install 1607. There will be no requirement to upgrade first as there was last year. Once your computer has run Windows 10 it has become a registered Windows 10 device and the current version (whatever that is) of Windows 10 (same edition) will clean install and activate without a product key or anything else.

    As for the new Windows Logo requirements taking effect in a couple of months, those apply ONLY to computers manufactured after that date. Your PRESENT Windows 10 computer will not suddenly become unusable just because of changes to the requirements for OEMs for NEW devices. You are not running one of those devices.

    If the Anniversary update requires more RAM (as stated here), specifically that the minimum goes up from 1GB to 2GB, then I would have thought it would affect upgraded machines too.

    I have a tablet with 1GB of RAM, which I can't add to. If I install the July 2016 update (assuming it lets me), will it be too slow to be usable? If not, what is so different about a new machine that means it requires 2GB

    You know, if they keep updating 10, eventually your machine won't be able to support an update.

    What ya need to do is a disk clean up to remove the Windows.old folders and that wouldn't be an issue. I do that and I get frequent updates from the insider program.

    Absolutely true. At some point old hardware will no longer support new features so you will then either stay at the current release or go buy a new computer. The first thing I expect to see go is 32 bit support.

    Given the variety of form-factors involved, 32-bit may be longer-lived than you expect, but perhaps not on some main-stream devices.

    I have burnt 1511 onto a DVD as an installation disk. Should I do the same to 1607 when it is available? Will people do so?

    I sure will. It can't hurt and I want it so I can go to that build if I drop out of the insider program some time in the future.

    The more major updates, the more DVDs are needed.
