But I watch YouTube in 720P (display is 1280x800), so most of the time it works but it's not rare that I have to end stuff.
Actually my Core 2 Duo gets even more affected by that because it has half the amount of cores and threads.
But I'd do anything to keep my vintage looking Dell Inspiron 1520 up and running a modern OS! It has an incredible keyboard and sound card (when using headphones ofc)

[UPDATE] In the Windows 10 1703 install Lenovo Recovery gives you, directly on local disk, there is a folder called drivers that contains absolutely all the required drivers for the tablet (there are a lot of them that Windows does not find for you and anything from Lenovo website appeared to just crash Windows, likely due to me installing the VGA driver before some more important stuff).
So I clean installed Windows 11 on the tablet (not only do I want Windows 11 but also Windows 10 would just be impossible to install due to massive graphical glitching), and it looks like it works perfectly.
It's definitely better than my clone-reclone which required me to delete windows.old, clean up winsxs, and a lot of stuff like that all the time.

For now I am no longer experiencing freezes, although I did while installing the drivers and during the Windows install. But again I am pretty sure this was caused by missing drivers!
