If Win7/8.1 works for ya, you can probably stick with them for now.

I recently bought the latest and greatest Lenovo P70 workstation (64 GB of RAM!), and for this one, I honestly had to upgrade to Win10 due to the fact that my monitor is 4K. There was no Win8 option on my case, and Win7 doesn't handle 4K well at all.

When you upgrade to Win10, you'll have to do quite a bit of configuration tweaking to make it work to your liking, but it can certainly be done. One thing I hate A LOT about Win10 is the startup time - it's worse than Win8 on my previous laptop. So basically this laptop, should pretty much be at least 4X times my previous laptop in power, but doesn't really act like it.

I wish you the best of luck if you decide to "upgrade" (instead of a clean install).

All in all, win10 is nice, and at some point you will have to upgrade. But at this point, I don't see many advantages over win8.1, other than the UI looks a bit nicer.

Best,
John
