Hi,

I have a Lenovo Yoga 500 laptop. Core i7 6500, 8GB RAM.
I'm a computer science student, so every bit of performance I can get is welcome.

I'm thinking of creating a dual boot system of two Windows 10 installations, where one is tweaked towards the performance extreme, and the other for comfort and utility.

For example, the performance one will have much less services enabled, almost no programs installed except for Visual Studio, no animations etc, and the other will be rich with "everything I could need". uTorrent will be there, VLC, Ultramon etc.

I'm assuming a separate registry, c:\users, c:\windows and so on will help each system to be more stable, and do its designated job better.

Basically I'm tired of trying to find out the "right balance" between performance / usability (or stability) in a pretty mediocre laptop. Might as well have 2 operating systems.


What do you think?

Thanks a lot,

Gilad

You're probably going to put more effort into this and frustration stitching between the two then real value you'll get out of it. Reducing the number of services results in barely any gains on modern high performance computers, regular upkeep and not install unnecessary software will accomplish that too.

Also, you don't have a mediocre laptop, it's a pretty high end one. If you don't have an SSD then add that to the system instead, that's something that will give you real gains.
