which do I prefer company or assembled windows 10 pro system.
« on: October 11, 2022, 06:25:12 pm »
Hi, I am thinking of buying windows 10 for all practical purposes.
Company sells hardware with os is one way of doing it.
prefered parts and then assembling and install Os is another way of doing it.
For windows 7 , I have chosen the second way.
The dvd was there to install with key.
But Now, there is no dvd . just a key and then installation of OS.
So, I think companies made pcs with windows will be having compatible hardware , like main parts, cpu,motherboard,ram,graphics card, audio system,smps,dvd drives for specific hard disk size.
The OS preinstalled like windows pro 10 64 bit.
On the other hand, our own choice of these products and obtaining key and then install OS iso.
Here we can be choosy about the spare parts brand lke intel chip, inter processors , prefered cabinet,prefered sound system video card etc.
plese also say, will there be so much cost between home and pro version
Expecting a detailed reply

Some years ago I was on an electronics course and there was a guy on it who decided to build his own computer.
.
When he was done, he found that a pre-built one would have been fractionally cheaper.

Fair enough, you may not be able to find one with the same specs as you want but the manufactures seem to know what they are doing.

It could be a case of shopping around until you find one with specs you would be happy with and compare the price of that with the cost of building your own.

Some years ago my brother built his own pc - not for financial reasons but just for the fun of doing it.

He'd been into electronics when he served in the RAF.

Hi, Thanks .
But company pcs would have some outdated components.
But I do feel that company built pcs would have no compatible problems of components.
Let me get this details from you.
what are so many builds in windows 10.
Windows have the latest edition of ultimate in windows 7 64 bit and only updates and service packs for them.
But here in windows 10, i know that there are 2 versions , home and pro.
But what about so many builds in that . are they mere updates or separate sub OSes in these two home and pro
little bit confusing..
are dvds available for windows 10 .
I ask this query, as companies system would be OS pre installed
if suppose, there is problem unforseen in mobo, then how could i reinstall the OS.
thaks for your advice on company pcs

The safest way to protect from a computer failure is to create a system image onto either DVDs or an external HDD and the means to recover from them.

I use an external HDD and use the free version of Macrium Reflect to recover with should I ever need it.

For DVDs you would create a System Recovery disk which you can do from within Windows.

This is a bootable disk.
