Re: What do different "builds," same model have in

Thanks for all of the info.  That's a great rundown on things.  I think I am a bit disappointed in the ability to quickly figure out what's in a machine based off of the model number.  But, I think that's the way of the world in non-server computers that come packaged with Windows.  

I am surprised at how many Windows operating systems each of these machines can run.  I recently bought a Lenovo Thinkcentre M82 Az6 Machine type: 2929, which is comparable to an Optiplex 7010 that I'm considering, and it doesn't seem to support Windows 8.1, but it does support Windows 7 and Windows 10.  Perhaps it could support 8.1 but you would have to dig deep to find drivers (motherboard manufacturer or Intel).  I seem to have "exhausted" Lenovo support and the peer forum.
