    I have upgraded all my personal and home laptops and despite the privacy concerns mentioned in several well known forums, a detailed run through security settings in the OS, plus the use of third party tools like VPNs or encrypted instant messaging, would leave your PC decently protected.

    In terms of performance, Windows 10 works quite well and similar to Windows 8.1 (not to be confused with Windows 8), so RAM and CPU usage are quite low, space used in hard disk has been reduced and stability of the OS overall is quite good.

    My personal advice is do upgrade, make sure that prior to that you have a backup of all your important data, and review all the new settings and control panel to stay updated.

        You can roll back to win 7 within 30 days I think if the system doesn't function as well.

          It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

            Sorry to read you had issues. Win 7 was good, but Win 10 improves performance in the same machine based on benchmarking:

            I don't play with the computer so I cannot say in terms of video rendering.

                    On mid-high end laptops, win 10 works well. I tried upgrading on an older pc, it was very slow and laggy. So had to revert back to win 8

                      Re: upgrade from windows 7 to windows 10

                      I had windows 7 then I bought a new laptop which had windows 8.1 and last year I upgraded to windows 10

                      I would say try upgrading and see how it goes, if you don't like it you have a short time to go back to windows 7
                      If you memorize just 1 verse from the Quran everyday you would become a hafiz in 18 years and that's the Slowest pace, so what's stopping you?
                      And if you die during that time, then you at least had the intention of becoming a Hafiz

                          Up to you. You can use Windows 7 until 14 January 2020. As on that date, Microsoft will stop fixing security issues with Windows 7, and you will be forced to upgrade to Windows 10 at that point if you want security fixes from microsoft.
