I may be "?" getting this for Christmas as a gift from my Mother and seek opinions from current fs9/fsx users that have used Win10 I have heard some have problems using FS on Win10. Note this is completely rebuilt with warrenty from Amazon for $239 Is it worth it or a waste? (Mom ordered two of these and the are being shipped as I type)?

I went on to maybe order this but it was sold out.
Keep checking with them as they post new items constantly. We ordered ours on "Black Friday" and I got mine yesterday. The other will be here by Tuesday. (BTW - Free shipping).
The pain is gonna be transfering files to the Win10 from Vista sys.! I just installed FS9 but I still need to transfer the aircraft,gauges,sounds, et al and that will take time as I have close to 1,000 aircraft. Not to mention add on scenery! After all is done, I may do a clean Vista install & use it for back up's and try to get back into painting. Also a new 24/7 server for us but that's a maybe. Knowing myself, I may just give the whole thing to Froggie! It's going to be awhile before I get the 10 set up the way I want as I'm a newbie with Win10! May have to find a 12 year old to set up for me!
Started flying MSFS when the original came out 4 colors!
Lots of Dell OptiPlex 9010s, which is the computer I have, but with more RAM. I can say, this is a very good computer if you upgrade the graphics card! I've had it since late 2016 with no issues at all
