This computer has XP. I would like to upgrade to a newer system. What should I upgrade to?

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today.

The hardware for a XP machine won't be able to handle anything other than Vista and possibly Windows 7. Both are going to go out of warranty in the next couple years.

You are better off investing in a new computer, and the only thing new computers come with anymore is Windows 10.

you would have to purchase a Windows 7 license to be able to upgrade to it.
