It's a beautiful looking device, I can definitely see the appeal of them. Although, I wouldn't like to take it apart to try and fix/replace something.

If I may try to clear the muddied waters. What I read but still unable to find is, it is the combination of ddr4 and skylake-s that will create the block.
  • If for example you run ddr3 and skylake-s you won't be blocked.
  • If you run ddr4 and any other 5th gen cpu you won't be blocked.
  • Again, nothing that I have found indicates that MS is blocking any ddr4 ram.
Thanks for clearing that up Anak.

I did think that would be a bit of a stretch too far, even for MS!

Think I'll take the plunge and get the 6600k, keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best in future. If it gets blocked somewhere down the road, then I'll have to look for an alternative OS to install.

I still have loads of Retail versions of 7 and 8.1 so I've just got to make sure the chip I buy for my next build won't be blocked by MS. I always get a good few years out of my builds. I've never felt the need to upgrade everything regularly.
Hi,
You can run win-7 on a mac just need to use boot camp I hear
Kind of tough to build a laptop though so off the rack we go

That's why I bought two spares while I could.

I only use a notebook when I'm traveling or if my desktop is down for repairs or upgrades so the three I have will easily outlast Win 7.

I just installed the April RollUp on the system in My specs and it went quick and smooth.
Now both of my systems have the RollUp installed without any problems so far.

The i7-6800k (Broadwell-E) is not affected, Kaby Lake and Ryzen are affected.

I totally understand that.
My post was intended to just let folks know that things worked well for me with my hardware.
Just a little information nothing else.
