Which Windows version for new laptop?

Postby pianist » Wed Nov 14, 2018 9:38 am

I'm going to purchase a new gaming laptop for running Manager with video previewing three different players - one software player (on the local PC) and a Compact Player, Dual output. It will be fitted with 512 GB M.2, 32 GB Ram and GTX1070 I have a similar machine running Manager + Software Player + WD simultaneously with previewing of one fullHD stream and a 720p stream which runs perfect. This PC came with Win8.1.

All new consumer gaming PC's come with Win10 HOME. Win 8.1 may be hard to find, but can still be purchased - especially as downloadable versions

When I read the forum, you still recommend 8.1, since WIN10 is more difficult to optimize for PB. If going with WIN10, what should I pay special attention to, when optimizing the system?

Go with Win 8.1 Pro if you can.
If you can not. For sure use Win 10 Pro never Home.
