    I don't see the Windows 7 downgrade mentioned on any of the current toughbooks on Panasonic's site. Have they EOL'd them and no longer selling them? Anyone know anything concrete?

    See attachment.

    "Consequently, after 31 October 2018, Panasonic will no longer be able to ship any systems with the OEM downgrade
    facility option with pre-installed Windows 7 Professional from Windows 10 Pro. Instead, from that date onwards, all
    current models from Panasonic will be available with pre-installed Windows 10 Pro."

    Yes. Also, dirty and rough around the edges.

    Could draw a reference about a computer being "bricked" with Windows 10 installed. Still marginally functional, but worthless, LOL.

    Windows 7 FTW!

    LOL! The only thing Windows 10 is good at is ruining CPU performance. The best BIOS settings in the world are not enough to make it run well.

    Same BIOS settings. Boot Windows 7, run test. Boot Windoze OS X, run test. Flush toilet. Reboot back to Windows 7. Profit! Numbers never lie. People do.

    If points in a benchmark or FPS in a game are your ultimate goal keep beating that dead OS for all it's worth! For every person here complaining about Windows 10, there are literally thousands of happy users drinking the Windows 10 Koolaid. Me included! *gulp*

    I do use Win10 on my work PC.
    It works fine on that. BUT, I did a LOT of work tweaking the install to eliminate most of the crap.
    It looks and works more like Win7 now.
