You can get a 64GB SSD for £25.

Hp stream isn't upgradable. Maybe you could get away with an SD and install to that basically it's gooseberry fool.

Just had a message pop up on the Action Centre saying 'unfortunately this computer cannot be upgraded to the latest version of Windows 10. 8GB required.'

Oh, so NOW you tell me. That feedback. :datass:

What was you thinking buying this?

It was a temporary measure before I bought a Macbook...but it's just ended up a little less temporary than planned.

The storage must be upgradable surely? Is it not just a case of it being one of those M.2 cards instead of a traditional 2.5” drive? Although if this device only cost £200 then an M.2 drive will be about half the cost of the thing :lol:

Seems like Microsoft are just giving up on Windows as their market share declines.

I remember when everyone had a Windows PC at home, now it's increasingly all about Android and Apple.

By the time Nadella's done Microsoft will no longer be a household name.

No way. If you want a PC at home it isn't going to be Android. If you are on a budget or want a bigger range of software, it isn't going to be Apple. If you are a business, your workers will be using Windows.

Yes?

That's the thing though, most people don't want that, it's all about iPads for them. Kids HAVE to have an iPad at high school (don't see the appeal myself) and get most of their work done on them.

Microsoft are talking about AI focus, but from a consumer standpoint it's all about Google Assistant, Alexa and Siri. People at work are oblivious to Cortana and react like I've performed voodoo magic when I use it to find programs on their PC.

Sounds like Microsoft should do the honourable thing and pull out of the software business.

If it wasn't for gaming I would happily use Linux.

However, I don't think MS is going to 'abandon' Windows any time soon. It might simply end up giving it away for free or close to free to home users and using it as a vehicle for a) promoting services like Office 365 and b) providing continuity for people who use Windows for work and keeping people inside the ecosystem.

As things like chromebook become more popular I suspect MS will be compelled to drop charging OEMs for Windows. Windows does not offer as much compelling reasons for consumers to choose it now so I would suggest making products that run Windows cost more than their competitors is a mistake.

I think Nadella wanted to focus on the business market. Didnt he once say that he wanted to sell Xbox off to someone else.

I put a script on my work computer that constantly changes the 'Active Hours' setting so that the update can't automatically run. Problem is Windows will just ignore your settings after a week or two and install the update anyway :x
