Here are just a few benefits of Windows 10

Windows 10: Things to check before you try the upgrade

If you would like to take advantage of the benefits that Windows 10 has to offer then the key to success is to first ensure that your computer (providing it’s a ‘qualified device)  is running the latest version of Windows; this is  Windows 8.1 Update.

I'm already using Windows 8.1?

Then hurrah, you will be able to upgrade for free within a year, as long as you meet the requirements above.  Recommendation today is to upgrade for free to Windows 8.1 update.

What’s the difference between Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 update?

Windows 8.1 Update includes additional features that improve the compatibility of Internet Explorer, extend policy settings for mobile device management and easier deployments across businesses, plus provides more familiar mouse and keyboard options.

Not sure what Operating System your on....

If you don’t know, then you can find out via http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/which-operating-system

How do I know if I am using a qualified device?  

The device is qualified if it is running Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 however some requirements apply:

Your device must be connected to the internet
Your device must have Windows Update enabled (ISP fees may apply)
Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1 Updates are required

What if I’m still using unsupported Windows XP, Windows Vista operating systems? 

Upgrade operating system or, if its the original device the operating system came installed on, upgrade your device.  If you buy a device with Windows 8.1 pre-installed, you'll get a free upgrade to Windows 10!
