I got notifications on the two desktops but so far not on the laptop....

You would have to have the laptop equivalent of PeeWee Herman for it not to run according to the specs on Microsoft's website:

System requirements

If you want to upgrade to Windows 10 on your PC or tablet, here’s what it takes.

Latest OS: Make sure you are running the latest version either Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1 Update.

Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC
RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit
Hard disk space: 16 GB for 32-bit OS 20 GB for 64-bit OS
Graphics card: DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver
Display: 1024x600

If all else fails you can manually get the reservation here

You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

So hat's the minimum for it to run, what's the minimum for it to run well?

I reckon it will be something akin to the Windows 8.1 specs  rubschin:
