Well, yeah, that´s what I feared too w/ Win 10.dawman wrote: ↑Thu Feb 21, 2019 6:40 pmI’m concerned about not being online all the time.
Will dubya 10 do stupid shit from that?
I always hook it up to check for updates when I’m not gigging.
But noticed it sometimes won’t let tha LAN LEDs on the faceplate side light up, and acts like it’s disconnected.
I’d hate to have crap go wrong when gigging.
Sometimes it’s offline for 4 days.
That´s why I wanted Win7 Pro ...
After Gary replied yesterday, I went to the dealer´s website to pull the trigger,- but even they had 12 "A-category" machines left the day before,- they were sold out unfortunately,- and before I had recognized they had lowered the price by EUR 100,-.
Now I´d have the option to buy the quad core variant W540, 2.7GHz /6mb cache i7 4800QM Haswell w/ Win10 Pro 64Bit pre-installed, licenced by Win8 Pro key in BIOS.
Is that kind of licence policy cool ?
Is Win 10 "free" when there´s a Win 8 licence key existing ???
More of these laptops come ´til march 10,- but all will be Win10 Pro 64Bit already.
Seems I have to go w/ Win 10 too.
