    I had the same PC for years, but upgraded a year ago since it was really worn out.
    Run now also WIN10 on a 2008 Latitude laptop with 4 GB.
    This OS really runs fine on old hardware.

    Never experienced such slow updated, IMO the problems are at the Microsoft servers.
    You can enable downloads from other PC's within or out of your own network.

    Apart from some minor settings losses no problems with 1903.

    Like the audio setting MONO. Since I only hear from one side, finished with soldered wires for my headphone.

    This is at least part of why this major update took so long.

    https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core2+Quad+Q9400+@+2.66GHz&id=1045

    Still, 14 hours is a horribly slow install time. There may be other issues, such as internet data transfer speed, minimal free hard drive space available, hard drive speed and/or failing components.

    Many people comment the same. Windows 10 is the best MS OS, outliers exempted.

    I had an SSD in the Inspiron.

    Win 10 1903 has issues...or the supporting ecosystem has not caught up yet. I am also experiencing stuttering on Netflix both on the App and using MS Edge with subtitles on. I checked on the internet and sure enough, I am not alone. Gamers are also seeing stuttering on some games as well. The source of that can either be related or separate. I am also hearing the occasional dropout on streaming music as well this could be related but the rollback could take of this. This weekend I am rolling back my HTPCs with saved images. Macrium works like a champ here. Over the last 2-3 years I've had to do this over 20 times on various machines. Sure hope this is resolved by the end of the summer.

    Palombian, don't feel bad. The time it takes to update will depend on the specific hardware and apps loaded on the machine. There is a huge difference between updating a Ryzen7 1800X with a Samsung M.2 960 EVO as compared to updating a FX8320 @4Ghz with a Samsung 860 EVO Sata. The latter took 2 hours whereas the Ryzen took less than 15 mins.... TO confirm the differences, it also took less time to update a Phenom X4 965 (older than FX8320) using only an older 120GB Sandisk SSD but with few apps loaded than the FX8320 system. My connection is rated at 250GB/s but I can peak at around 500! Get this though my old AMD AM2 system over a decade old now running a Phenom X3 720 updated in less than an hour using a cheap USB wireless adapter. It was a TPlink and cost less than $10 about 5 years ago! Definitely not an AC rated one.

    I suppose you mean 250 Mbps (megabits per second).
    I have here 100 Mbps from the phone company over copper wire.
    This is already very fast, I did not have to wait long for the last Windows update.
    Install time maybe 5-10 minutes.

    But I had cleaned my OS SSD before.
    Not sure if lack of disk space on SSD's had the same slowing down effect as on a hard disk.
    On the latter it is easy explainable by excessive head movements and the fact that the data rate on the inner tracks is less.

    IMO the hard disk is @TGWOH 's problem, not the CPU.
    Never had 14 hrs on my Q9400 with an SSD.

    PS: I have an i5-8600 now.

    Friend has an i5 8400 with 8 GB RAM and an Samsung EVO SSD. It's impressive.

    Indeed, and it was downplayed as a "cheap" processor.
    6 cores helps a lot.
    And Lightroom uses them all. I don't care about previews anymore, I evaluate my photo's directly in the editor.
    Very glad I built this machine last september.
    Only RAM was expensive then. Installed 16 GB, with 8 GB it is difficult to open a second editor within LR.
    Memory price almost halved since.
