Hi,

So perhaps technically not HPC, but very small PC with same form factor...!

Just wondered if anyone had one of these, whether they had already tried upgrading to windows 10 already? Mine is giving me the option, but wondering whether the drivers will support all the functions?

Cheers

JT

I think there is a reason that the N5 came with Win7 Starter...so it wouldn't overtax the handheld. I guess if you have 16-20Gb free, you could install Win10 on it...but you would have to find some source for the drivers and that device is not listed on Microsoft's site as supported by Win10. But other than the drivers, since it is an Atom processor, I would think it feasible to upgrade...just make sure you have a full image of your existing system in case you fail in your attempt.
