    Windows 10

    Should I Upgrade?


    So, the question is, should I upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10? I'm asking this as my CPU is only 2.1 GHz and wondering if it would run normally or even better in cases than W7.

    All comments appreciated!

    Windows 10 Pro (64 bit)

    I would personally only migrate to Windows 10 with a new machine. The update has potential pitfalls. Unfortunately we can't stay away from 10 forever. Eventually software will be Windows 10 only.

    put it this way , I bought a new uber powerful gaming desktop recently which had Windows 10 pre installed. I already own a 4 year old gaming laptop with 7 on it. I resist the nagging update to 10. I much prefer the older laptop. Everything just works as it should whilst 10 is quirky and glitchy. Plus I have a lot of very old software/games that run pretty good on 7, by upgrading to 10 you run the risk of losing that ability . So I recommend keep your machine on 7 and try to keep it as an alternate machine if you ever purchase a new machine

    Yep, I'll be building a new PC ( http://www.sevenforums.com/pc-custom...tom-build.html )

    Don't forget that this is not a "Is Windows 10 better than Windows 7?" discussion. I'm asking If my CPU could handle Windows 10 and run appropriately. Windows 10 specs are 1 GHz but I still want to know the above question.

    That has been my experience as well. In fact, it seems like the "weaker" the computer is in hardware, the greater benefit over Windows 7 or 8 I have noticed.

W10 Insider Prev upgrade to Win10 full vs of W7/8 upgrade to W10
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?
