My wife had an older i5 Dell Inspiron with 8 gigs of Ram, which was maxed out, and that thing was so slow I tossed it in the recycle bin after I built my latest PC in April. I canít even imagine an i3 with 4 gigs of Ram.
After you pulled the HDD or SSD right?

Oh yeah, I wiped the hard drive, then took a hammer to it. :-)

I don't even throw away dead hard drives that were used in my studio, I just keep them in a box in my garage.

Disposing of them is not worth the risk, however infinitesimally small.

If they don't have errors, I keep them. Otherwise, they get burned.

There are some major differences for sure, but I have trouble getting too worked up about it. Everyone threw a fit when they dumped the start menu in Windows 8, but these days I barely use it. Moving the icons to the middle is definitely very Mac-like, but I'm sure the point is to reduce the amount of mouse movement, and people will get used to that pretty quickly.

Just in general, though, it's hard to care that much anymore. For most people, your web browser has far more to do with your day-to-day computing experience than your OS does.

I still use my windows like windows 98. I use My Computer which gets more hidden with every version of windows. I definitely use the start menu and windows 10 did a great thing with it allowing the search function.

Sure, but some of us are on our computers 40+ hours a week for work and not talking a web browser. Changes to the OS can make a difference so we will whine about it thank you very much.

:-)

And I too remember Microsoft's claim about Windows 10 being the last one.

This looks like 10x but rebranded for mArKeTiNg Buzz

I have done some work on the dev preview and it's ok

Looks like you have 2 slots allowing for a max of 16GB. DDR3 1600 or DDR3 SDRAM but not sure which yet.

Received. Here it is:

https://www.newegg.com/asus-m11ad-us...82E16883220448 I like that case a lot.

16GB max, 2 slots. You don't need 16 so hopefully you just have one stick of 4 installed so we can just add one more for around $20.

Here's your user manual: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/55...sus-M11ad.html

Here's a tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIl6mmosgMc

MB pic received. One stick is all you need to add to the open slot. And get a can of air and clean out the dust and dirt in there and everywhere else. It's piled on your processor inside it's cooling fan like a sand dune. That can cause heat issues (probably is), unseating, and a myriad of other issues. The fan might not even be spinning up to max speed with all that Arizona in there and up around the post. Shoot, try that first and see if it improves things. Ideally, you'll want to remove the fan during cleanup. An air compressor works great! MS Edge uses far less RAM too. I've been real happy with Edge.

I gotta assume you can move the start button, as you can now in 10.

You are a gentleman and a scholar. Thank you.

I'm going with this one unless anyone else has suggestions?
