    Its code name is "RedStone 5" and its bi-annual update name is "October 2018 Update".

    You can download the Media Creation Tool (10.0.17763.1) from HERE so you can create bootable install media with a DVD disc or USB thumb drive.

    I just finished creating a bootable DVD disc and will install it later this week.

    For those of you who already have RedStone 4 Version 1803 OS Build 17134 installed, a "check for updates" should detect and upgrade it to RedStone 5 Version 1809 OS Build 17763.

    The upgrade went fine in my Dell OptiPlex 7010, but I did have to re-do some personalization changes and had to update 2 device drivers afterwards.

    Note: If your computer has a 6th generation or newer Intel processor, make sure its Intel graphic driver is up-to-date before you make the upgrade.
    The upgrade will be blocked or will display a warning in some computers if that driver is outdated.

    I installed this on my test laptop yesterday (an old Dell Inspiron 1545 with a few hardware upgrades) and everything seems fine so far. I didn't need to update any drivers.

    Widows 10 updated to Version 1809, build 17763.1 yesterday, 10/04/18. on my Acer AX 3300 purchased May 2010. everything OK so far. Yes it's slow, 'turtle' comes to mind Frank, but with Windows 10 and only 3 gig of Ram ,no surprise there. It's working and does all that I need so OK.

    Your Acer Aspire X3300 is running Windows 10 Home 64-bit and has 2.75 GB of its 3.00 GB of RAM usable.

    If it had a faster and snappier processor, I would suggest increasing it to 4.00 or 8.00 GB.
    Sticking with 3.00 GB is okay, especially if you use it only for basic functions.
