    What kind of performance can you expect at the minimum requirements? I'm curious because I have a few older machines that I may want to upgrade Windows on. If they will work better with 7 or 8.1 I wont waste the time.

      there is no huge difference between windows 10 and windows 8.1. so if a pc is working well with windows 7 or windows 8.1 it will work nicely with windows 10. no problem.

        I can confirm the minimum requirements and recommended requirements' differences aren't that notable. If your Windows 8 runs smoothly and without any kind of lag, you will encounter the same good treatment from Windows 10 as well. It's a pretty well-optimized OS at the first glance.

              Well this is one area that always worry me whenever I try a new OS, but thankfully I did just purchase a new computer not long before getting Windows 10, so I knew that I would be okay. If it were not this computer though, I would probably be struggling to do some research and wondering if I needed to go out and get something extra, which is never any fun. I am glad to report that there are no issues so far, but with my luck I will keep these fingers crossed for some time. Thanks for sharing.

                The same thing happens to me, the last time I bought an expensive game I just could not play it because of my actual PC specs, it was a shame I could not even resell the game, Steam should allow you to do that by the way.

                  The first time I used Windows 10, it was on an older machine with the bare minimum specifications. Surprisingly, it ran even faster than the previous version of Windows which I had. Really, I was very surprised. Now I have a new laptop and it comes pre-installed with Windows 10. The strange part is that it doesn't seem to be as fast as before. I am not sure what happened. Perhaps the first version was optimized for mobile machines which means that the hardware is more limited in scope than desktops. The latest version probably works better on higher end desktops. Still it is working and I can play World of Warcraft on it, so I am happy with it.
