Just updated to 16.1 and running it on an older HP DC5700 system. Ram usage is much lower as it was 989mb but now its 683mb. Thats probably due to the older system with its simpler design but Ill test it on my newer system to see what happens.

No issues with the 16.1 update and it includes a lot of newer hardware support.

After many issues with the HP DC5800 Ive got Zorin running on a Dell 7010 Optiplex MT with terrific performance.

Runs very well on my Dell Optiplex 960 MT and for those looking for options away from Win10, you should give it a look.

This is the longest Ive stuck with one distro without hopping around. Feels odd but working with just one capable distro makes things a lot easier.

Recent updates have knocked down the resource usage quite a bit as it was around 1GB with the HP system but its down to 725MB.
