Windows 10 has been much better than anything I had. Windows 95 and then XP. I only wish Windows 11 could turn my now 5 year old PC into one that can play 4K vids. 720p is really its limit with short vids of SOME 1080 playing ok..some buffering. I have tried the 1400 just to see it play for a few seconds before it froze. Maybe the next tax rebate I can get something that has a top notch video card since I spend more time watching the internet, movies, and youtube on PC to Samsung TV.

Still have 7 as I tried to upload 10 but there is a partition Issue and I can't get into BIOS right now without fiddling with the motherboard. Assuming 7 to 11 isn't an option, or if it is the partition will be an issue.
One of my husbands 7 downloaded the 10 and the other wouldn't and it's about enabling it in the Bios and windows 7 isn't allowed with 11 i read such a shame.
In my opinion there's to many versions keep going and all for the sake of people spending more money, where they have pc's that are fine already it's totally disgusting.
) I did some research to see why that was an issue and how to resolve that and that's when I found out that I would have to disable my motherboard in order to enter BIOS which can become disabled after you had your computer for a while
I read to enter Bios and watched video's they reckon you press F2 and your Bios comes up and there's things in there to enable and disable, it's a right game though after doing your pc up.
Quite frankly, if I could get an apple computer in this town I would because I can't stand windows10 or their updates that keep screwing up my machine.
Colin it's caused some issues and what you have to do would drive me totally mad. My step son swears by apple computers and that's all he as besides iphones, anything to do with windows or android phones he won't touch.
Windows 10 has been a very stable OS for me, that noise you hear is me knocking on wood. I will likely update to Window 11 in the not too distant future. When you consider how many hardware configurations Windows supports it is actually pretty surprising how well it works. Honestly, I do not work for Microsoft.
Like yourself i've been lucky with no trouble but i could go mad about my Hp my hubby as had off me only 5yrs old gaming laptop, 8gb memory and 1Tb with 4 core and loads left on it and it's not showing tpm.msc 1.2 or 2.0 but in system information it contains everything you should have for windows 11 otherwise.

I mainly use computers for web browsing, emails, basic word processing, etc. My HP Chromebook work efficently, is very fast, updates in seconds, turns on in seconds, has a hi-definition screen, doesn't get hot, and battery lasts for 10 hours. Between my iphone 6s plus and the chomebook, I am very happy.

Before this covid started me and my husband looked at the chrome books and someone said the memories get used up quick, so we didn't venture.

I bought an upscale chromebook...has 8gb memory, 64 GB drive, free cloud drive storage, sd slot to add more storage, a fast I3 processor, lighted keyboard, fingerprint sensor, IPS hi-def screen, and touch screen input if desired. It has a 360 degree hinge. You can find it on sale for about $450--normally sells for $629 Here's the model I bought...presently not on sale.
The reviews rate this chromebook very highly.

The processor speeds good at 2.1 and none of this was mentioned what you explained they mainly mentioned the memory usage, as we've never had one before.

I can't moan though with the one i've had they downloaded the system for me for £40 on SD card and besides 12mths warranty i took out a 2yrs besides which hit just over £700. Hopefully it lasts a few years.

What i do laugh at though when me husband is purchasing for me, he's telling me stuff over the phone while dealing with it. lol
