I think Siegart, sorry if I spelled your name incorrectly, hit the nail on the head when he talked about the hard drive being on its last legs. Maybe I am out of the loop of techies however, when I hear the term refurbished, I think new hard drive, new battery and brand new operating system. In this case, I think they just installed a windows 10 CD. It runs hot within 10 minutes. This is why I think it is running something it does not have the power to run and is basically working to hard.

I would say if you have 6 gigs of ram or more, you’ll probably be ok. Anything less then 6 or even 8 may not be a good idea.
I have Windows 10 running on a Dell Laptop that came with Windows 8 originally and it is working, but, with a little hesitation.
Since I put an SSD in it, it flies, compared to what it used to do.

I have a refurbished computer that it was estimated ran windows 7 originally, now running windows 10. It does work, however, you could make and drink your coffee by the time JAWS loads up. It started with JAWS 18. I now have a Mac Book pro that was built around 012. It was converted to a windows 10 computer and it runs a lot faster. That is just my thoughts, yes a windows 7 can be upgraded to 10, you just might get frustrated with the slowness of the performance.
I'm running Windows 10 on older machines--2012 older anyway--and it works just fine. I haven't had one single problem since upgrading in February, 2017.
