    I thought it may be interesting to see who's running Windows 10 on the oldest hardware, considering the minimum requirements are fairly modest.

    My main PC is my oldest system and it's 6 years old (i5 3570k with 16GB RAM) - it still does everything I need of it, so I can't imagine upgrading any time soon. This isn't too old, so I'm sure this will be an easy one to beat :D.

    I'm sure there will be plenty of 10+ year old systems running Windows 10, but I'm interested to see what the oldest one we can find is :).

    HP Compaq NX9420 Laptop purchased in 2007 and a Toshiba Laptop Satellite Series purchased in 2008.
    My Desktops are incompatible with Windows 10, even Win8.

    Dell OptiPlex 745, 755 and 780 and Dell Inspiron 530S. The 755 and 530S started with the first Technical Preview and now are running the latest Insider Preview version.

    Not sure if this applies to this thread, but....
    My primary physical Insider Preview machine was thrown together with some pretty old bits and bobs.

    An old MSI motherboard with an old LGA775 socket containing a 3 Ghz Dual core HT (not core two duo), 4 gigs of Ram and a cheap nVidia GPU.
