HP 285 G2 microtower
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Thanks for your and everyone else's replies to my May posts.

I added an extra 4GB of RAM, which made a huge difference to the PC performance, and then upgraded from Outlook 2016 to Microsoft 365.  Total cost <$150, including technician's time, a lot less than buying a new PC or laptop.

Haven't got round to having a SSD fitted to supplement the hard drive yet, but will do so this summer.

 

Especially glad I didn't buy that PC in light of the news that a lot of existing PCs won't be able to run Windows 11 as currently specified.  Hope I can keep this PC running until Windows 10 support ends in 2025...
