Odds this will run Win11?
I've had this system for a long time due to what I paid for it and how well it has held up over time with the i7-3770 CPU. I've also looked into upgrading it to something newer but I could never justify it due to how well the system has held up. Sadly I think it met the final boss with Win11: TPM required/8th gen+ CPU required.
Look I'm okay with taking the L on this XPS if need be but my issue now is if this will work I'm doing so at higher risk until I know it will work for sure, especially since this system is no longer supported by Dell. If I need to take an L on the Dell and upgrade it to 10 and stay there until 2025, so be it.
I've held onto it so long since I paid $40 for it a few years ago from someone who wanted it gone - this will be hard to beat. A lot of newer prebuilts are sardine cans with nonstandard motherboard and power supply combinations - it's a hard sell when this has held up so well. I will never get NVMe on 3rd gen but I've never been unhappy with it otherwise.
Besides the fact I'm potentially screwed on 6th gen unnecessarily, what hope do I have for Windows beyond 10 with the XPS?
