Moving to Windows 10 in the Wake of Windows 7 End of Life

A moment of silence for Windows 7, as support for the 10+ year OS has ridden off into the sunset.

Microsoft has announced EOL for Windows 7 OS as of January 14, 2020. In short, Microsoft will no longer release security updates or provide technical support to systems running Windows 7. The simplest solution would be to purchase and install Windows 10 onto your existing PC, just ensure your system’s compatibility beforehand. 

According to the Upgrade to Windows 10: FAQ, Microsoft recommends using Windows 10 on a new PC to take advantage of the latest features and security improvements. Furthermore, purchasing a system with Windows 10 pre-installed negates the risk of faulty installations. 

All iBUYPOWER systems come equipped with Windows 10 pre-installed. Whether you’re in the market for a high-end gaming PC or an entry-level desktop, we cover all ranges of specs and pricepoints for your next-generation Windows 10 desktop.
