Hello Tech Gurus.
I am in need of a computer that is able to run XP (old but gold! xD). I have some requirements and I'm able to find a solution myself, but I wish for the best solution and that is why I'm here :)
My requirements are:
  • It has to be reliable - 24/7.
  • Should not take up much space. The smaller the better.
  • It should be able to handle a "harsh" environment (more dust than usual)
  • It should be upgradeable to windows 10.
So basically a small, reliable, resilient PC with specs for Windows 10 :)
Thank you!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Besides the dust, what type is it and are there temperature range  extremes? If the environment is a major concern you may want to consider an all in one unit. You may be able to partially enclose it so it’s still functional and protected from the dust. The other option is install some type of dust collection system to capture the dust before it has a chance to circulate in the air.

    Provide more details on how it be be used and we can maybe provide a better solution. Will this be a stand alone unit or on a network? Why the 24/7 uptime? Why is size a concern? There are many ways you could go depending on the specs and your budget.

    For your kind information, Microsoft closed support of Windows XP since April,2014. So why are you interested to use XP that you did not reveal here. It is better to acquire a computer that supports to install Windows 7 and if XP is really required for you, you can install XP by using Windows XP mode on Windows 7.

    Moreover, Windows 7 supports to upgrade to Windows 10 as you asked for. Assuming your budget is constraint and to fulfill this one, it is better to contact a local but good hardware person/agency and ask for the same.
