an opinion from you would be helpful. Our Dell desktop is operating Windows7, Turbotax says no more support from Microsoft after 1/15???/20. We like a desktop, I have a decent laptop running Windows 10.
A friend who is fairly good with computers said to just upgrade this one? His wife works at VCU and can get a good price. We have enough memory free about 700GB's available to do this. This system is about 5 yrs old, replaced the fan 3 yrs ago.
What are your thoughts and opinions. Replace the system or upgrade to windows 10?

What do you do with the system? A nice machine from 5 years ago is still a solid midrange PC today. Depending on what specs you have in your system.. upgrading may very well be a valid thing for you.
