As the topic states,...what to do? Genuinely seeking for advice here.
Background info/ Here is the spec of my laptop:
Sony VAIO vgn-ar770U ( some considered a old model but it's a custom order piece ( I paid US$3800 for it) with hardware still kicking well comparing with so called new trend stuff)
32-bit/ OS: Vista Ultimate SP2
intel 2.6 Ghz
Solid State Drive: 400 GB
Nvidia video card
Blu Ray Read+Write disc drive
Resolution: 1900x 1200 (not 1080)
I have been thinking about switching the OS to Windows 10, and I have no problem with paying for it IF windows10 is truly as good as many people said. But as I read on this forum, some express concern(s) and problem(s)
1. VAIO is no longer part of Sony. VAIO does not support any older models. Sony said while they support older models but actually only for last 2-3 years products. My laptop does not qualified on their list, ie, no driver update(s) will come from Sony nor VAIO for Windows 10 switch......seems it is truly a technical problem I will have...
2. I don't want to waste this laptop, as personally I still think it is functioning better than those i-"stuffs", and others run on android OS. I believe being a true computer, has certain capacity, + I truly enjoy the blu ray experience.
3. Sometime ago, I faced the blue screen of dealth, Windows restore and Windows repairs both suggested that some Window's components are broken and can not be repaired on its own, although still running, but a proper way, the only way to fix, will be a clean re-installation of OS, & then all update(s) from microsoft, which will takes days...if not forever, then + reinstallation of all softwares....--while this part is unavoidable, but the OS part can be, if I choose to buy Windows 10, then it will only takes perhaps half an hour and be done with OS fix...and more importantly, an new OS upgrade, which can be last for a few more years.
4. Flip side: it's 32-bit. Some suggest: if paying for Windows10 while most people are getting free ( those who had 7 & 8), it will be stupid for me, ...then why not buying a 64 bits computer with Windows10 ? Or perhaps buying a desktop with monitor and other device detached in case one device broken, it is cheaper to replace, plus, desktop always offer stronger hardware for the same $, comparing with portable devices like laptops, i-stuffs and mobile phones. Yet, my sony laptop, has been my "desk-top substitute"....i also use mobile phone more than just talking. I guess, what I am saying is, if buying, it will, decentralize my life, not be laptop, istuffs or mobile phones, but rather a desktop.
But, before spending $$ and wasting my laptop, which I am actually trying to avoid,....
Is Windows10 on my sony, workable given no drivers update from sony not vaio??....Don't worry about askng Sony forums / support .....they don't care,...i think Sony will fold, just a matter of time, .....
