Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am thinking about buying a cheap Lenovo ThinkPad t61 off of eBay and putting a cheap SSD in it would it be fast enough to install windows 10 pro 64bit on it Screenshot_20200928-173836.thumb.png.f6e57d911db2584bc14cbaa3e88d2c5e.pngScreenshot_20200928-173836.thumb.png.f6e57d911db2584bc14cbaa3e88d2c5e.pngand be fast enough to watch YouTube and do some web browsing?

as long as your expectations are set correctly, yes.


These are the stats of the MacBookPro I'm using right now, and browsing and youtube is pretty much what I use it for these days.

No! don't buy core 2 duos.

At least you can find a i3 second gen with ddr3.

You're gonna have trouble finding enough memory modules for DDR2.

Usually it only max out at 4gb.

Windows 10 will use 2-3gb.
