    hi guys , i really want to know what is better ? to do a normal upgrade for windows 10 on my laptop ?
    or i have to do a lean install because is better ?

    and is the clean install is good for laptops ?

    im afraid that maybe there will be some problems to do a clean install on the laptop , like all the drivers , the recovery partition ... ETC

    so what do you think ?

    Clean is the best for any O/S installs. But make sure to get the drivers first before wiping anything clean before doing so. And if this is a factory computer built make the REcovery disk before going to Windows X just incase.

    I have always done a clean install on every OS I install. That changed obviously with the way Windows 10 upgrades your previous product keys. To my amazement I kept all files and programs on both laptops and they are old, old like a 2007 ThinkPad T60 and Dell Vostro 1520 and everything worked after the upgrade. So count me highly impressed MS was able to pull it off. I haven't been so lucky seeing that when upgrading OS X on my Mac so kudos to Microsoft.

    if you want to convert your 8.1 key then it's upgrade then do a clean install.

    It does in one case, this is C2Q. With the older non-NUMA CPU's since Windows 8.0 the scheduler has been optimized. If you came from Windows 7 though the optimization was never in full effect for non optimized single threads. For Windows 8.0 and above you need the clean install.
