Hi to all, First of all. Some clients require hardware and software in Windows, so LINUX isn't an easy option (and would require learning and knowing still another OS.) And I UNDERSTAND (painfully) about (so-called) IT Departments. (Short story: I used to work for a medical center [name withheld to protect the guilty] that required ALL software be on their supported list, NO exception. One day, our secretary had a problem printing from WordPerfect (yes, it WAS a long time ago) which was one of their "supported" programs. Their IT department poured over the problem for two hours until I came in at about 10:00 AM because I had a doctor's appt. I had the printer working in about five [maybe seven] minutes.) I agree that 4 GB is small, but especially so for Win 10. But the 4 GB will only exist in the AMD machine until I determine Win 8.1 actually works, then I will upgrade to 8 GB. That is still on the "smallish" side, but all the machine is worth. My "REAL" machine is an i7-7700 with 16 GB running Win 10. Since I don't play games (except for solitaire on occasion) I think that is more than adequate. (I think the last GAME I bought was "Choplifter" for the Apple ][+) I DO use Norton (Internet Security, finely honed to not use too many resources) and a firewall, so I should be (relatively) safe.
