I'd been keeping my old Acer Netbook on Windows 7 and pretty much dedicated to Tunerstudio. I liked the machine itself because; 1. it's really light, 2. Really long battery life 8hr+ and 3. I hate to throw stuff out if I can find a use. I'd kept it on Windows 7 mainly because I hated 8 and didn't want to take the time, considering how little I used it to go up to 8.1. Toyed with the idea of just installing Linux and the Linux version of Tunerstudio but decided against it because it's just another operating system to gain proficiency with and my business life is pretty much centered around the MS stuff for computers. No Linux bashing please...
Because I'd installed Windows 10 Preview on another couple computers, and liked it I decided to see what the old Netbook could do.
1. Installed a spare SSD drive - 64 Gig to help boot times
2. I'd already maxed the RAM prior to the 2G and because the price for 4G 200 pin SODIMMS is out of sight will stay at 2G.
No other upgrades to the machine itself. Same old 10.1 display @ 1024x600 resolution.
Installed the Win 10 preview off a USB drive.
End result is I actually like the machine for what it is. A light, cheap, small form factor laptop that I can just throw in the car and pull out when the need arises.
1. Boot time, from no power to desktop = 17 seconds
2. Tunerstudio & Megalogviewer both start quickly and run fine
If you happen to have an old Netbook hanging around you can put some life back into it reasonably cheap.
