Re: Desktops can take a long time to become obsolete nowadays

Agree, I think the upgrade issue is more acute in those businesses who run basic systems, here it probably is wise to simply replace 3+-year-old W7 boxes with new W10 boxes. However, running something semi-decent and those 3+-year-old boxes will happily upgrade to W10.

For one client, in the third-sector, we are buying in refurbished 3 year old business machines which have W10Pro pre-installed - this being significantly cheaper and less work than refurbishing their existing W7 boxes.
