    What specifications are best for Win 7 vs 8 vs 10


    So my parents buy used laptops every year and give them away to children who can't afford them back home and need them for school (yeah they are pretty awesome people =]). So I generally do reformatting and tweaking and adding in programs or things they might need so if they aren't computer savvy they won't have to waste too much time.

    I just got a Toshiba Tecra A11 with Windows 7 preinstalled, but I wanted to format the whole thing but when I went to toshiba website to ensure I could grab all its drivers I realized they also had drivers for 8.1. I figured most likely it would probably upgrade to the 10 on its on, but any ideas which OS would be best to put on it would be greatly appreciated. I don't want the users to have to do anything on their own or have any issues and hopefully have the laptop running smoothly =]

    Here's a link to the specs. Hope you have a great day!
