I picked up a desktop computer that had been thrown out.
It had Windows XP and 256 MB RAM.
I upped the RAM to 2 GB then threw to whole thing out!

Puts a dent in your 4GB minimum story.

I said ordinary programs and its true.
It can play youtube full screen.
I suppose it helps that it has a dual core processor and
an Nvidea 128 MB video card.
I have an Acer Aspire One netbook with 1 gig RAM and XP.
It runs ordinary programs OK.
Microsoft say 1.0 Ghz CPU and 1 gig RAM will run Windows 10.

I was given a Dell laptop which I fixed and upgraded from Windows 7 
to Windows 10. It has a paid Nortons with 100 days left.
