    windows 8.1 tablets upgrade


    Been looking at some windows tablets and some of them don't come with much storage space. Some of this space is taken up with boot info and recovery partition.

    Will these tablets be upgradable to win 10, is there enough space for an update or should I just wait until new win 10 tablets come out?

    My memory is really bad ,but i think I read that 8.1 tablets are not in line for the free win10 upgrade ,but I could be wrong , ,so if my memory is correct ,I would wait till new tablets come out with win10 ,,, I'm going to google to check out my memory ,

    edit- sorry my memory was bad , it was Microsoft surface RT version that was not getting the upgrade

    Yes, but I forgot to say don't get one that has Windows RT. Make sure its the full windows version, otherwise you've had it
