    What's the lightest footprint / lowest drain version of 10 for an older notebook with an atom chip.

    Many Thanks

    No real difference measured with benchmarks between standard, ltsb's, chopped, and butchered installs.

    NTLite stripped 32bit 2016 LTSB N for lowest footprint for a general laptop. If x64 was able to downsize to 4GB with all important functions intact i could guess 32bit could get down to 3GB on disk (exclude .net cache). Less file and processes on load mean helps boot up faster on slower HDD with slight lower RAM usage, you'll also likely get a better responsive UI out of it and that's it.
