    Windows 8.1, Win10Pro

    My own advice would be to check with Dell -- BEFORE doing any upgrade. I made the mistake of upgrading my HP laptop to Win10 and the upgrade failed -- trashing my laptop in the process. It took doing a complete reinstall using the HP Recovery Media to get it back to its original condition.

    Case in point -- Sony is telling its PC owners to wait until October to do the update. They are working on new drivers for their PCs.

    Also, there are LOTS of posts from laptop owners in this forum about stuff not working after the Win10 upgrade -- due primarily to drivers, and (in the case of HP), OEMs are not necessarily providing Win10 drivers for older laptops. So, if the default MS drivers don't work, you're stuck.
