Thanks for your thoughts.
If you go with Win 10, go with the pro version as others have suggested. 10 has been good
for a while, but I continue to use the 7 machine as the primary SSDR station computer. I
stopped automatic "upgrades" in win 10, but it's been so long, I've forgotten how I did it.
Good luck and have fun,
and as 2nd PC a Panasonic Toughbook if you want water resistant and "tough" or an
ASUS Zenbook if you want small, but super high resolution.
Always go for SSD's and an i5 or i7 CPU. And Windows 7, if you want no update
problems. 73, Alex - DH2ID
Windows 10 is a far superior operating system to win 7. When win 10 was available as a free update, I updated approximately 30 machines with no problems. It is true that Microsoft will push out updates to win 10. However, I have not personally found this to be a big issue. Good luck with your search for a new computer. I would stay away from HP as their quality has seriously slipped in recent years. ASUS is a good name and Dell as always hangs in there with good quality.
