As they approach 10 years of great service, Microsoft has announced that free support for Windows 7 & 8 will cease on January 14th 2020 and January 10th 2023 respectively.
With many users still utilising these once cutting-edge operating systems, this latest announcement raises one major question: What do I do now?
For most organisations, this presents two clear choices – accept the risk of sticking with an outdated operating system, or upgrade to the latest offering.
Should you stick rather than twist, there is some important detail you need to know to inform you’re thinking, all helpfully laid out in our recent blog post.
If you know the time is right to upgrade, Microsoft has the perfect solution.
Windows 10 Pro – the ultimate OS upgrade
The right operating system takes your devices to another level, providing a platform for your people to reach their full potential.
Windows 10 Pro is built for business, and you’ll benefit from improved performance, enhanced ease of use and enterprise grade security. Should you choose, you can seamlessly upgrade your existing Windows 7/8 or 8.1 device before the end of their free OS support.
But a Pro operating system requires a top device to make the most of what it offers, and there’s no better machine to use than one of HP’s Elite range.
