    My Ex had a SSD fitted to her laptop while I was away last week. The chap who did it left it on Win 7 until she had checked the new drive out.
    She put it on my lap last night and asked if I would install Windows 10 and AVG without loosing any of her Apps and documents today.:)
    Success story, installed both without a single hiccup. It used about 10 GB of her memory but works like a dream. The ssd along with Win 10 is lightning fast, hardly have time to get my finger off the key before the page is displayed.
    Added it to my home network so she can use my remote drive for extra storage if required.
    If I say it myself it was a good job done.(y)

    I wonder how long it will be before she gums it up with a load of rubbish until it's just plodding along.. :LOL:

    on a serious note.. also have an SSD on a high end desktop, also with W10 .. and yes it's fast..

    but it's still crawls compared to my Macbook pro :D

    She is pretty good with her office based skills and believe it or not she doesn't use any social media.(y) Unlike my pc chaos she is a totally organised user.

    Like Apple phones those Macbook thingys are just a badge that can influence the young vulnerable users;).

    if its capable of running 8.1 then it will run 10 as fast if not faster

    as for taking up 10gb of space, only whilst it installs and then it uses the space to hold a backup in case you want to roll back the update. when you no longer need the backup it frees off about 5gb

    I'm no expert judgeM but windows will do a test of you lap top and state if suitable or not prior to loading. As far as speed, I have done three now and they are all much faster with win 10 than they were prior to the upgrade.
