There are no compatibility issues running 7 on one laptop and 10 on the other. I did the same thing before updating the drivers on my main laptop. Honestly, give it a go, you can always revert to 7 again.


At present I am not running any laptop as BT internet is down.Evil If I was using a pc however...I  currently have no time at all to get used to Win 10...so no interest in trying..even if I could. Come on BT GET this blue light back on!! Lol

There is nothing to get used to - the layout and settings etc are very similar to Win7.

Win7 will also become obsolete before 10 so at some point you will run the risk of becoming vunerable to security attacks like all those people running XP machines on a network now (and no free upgrade for them).

I know I know I know...I have Ray rattling away in my ear about exactly that...so let's put this to bed for once and all. When I go to Spain in June I will bring that laptop back to the UK...they can both be done at the same time. I know how I learn stuff and having one running one system and the the other running a different one is not something I PERSONALLY am comfortable with....so by the end of June both will be upgraded to 10....I hope all those 'worrying on my behalf' are happy now? LOL

If there is anybody still running Vista LOL or XP then here's a link for Win7 which is a little cheaper than an equivalent paid for version of Win10.
