End of Support – Windows 10

End of Support for Windows 10

Support for Windows 10 is ending soon in October 2025 and devices will no longer get security and feature updates. Older devices can be less secure so delaying upgrades could be costly to your business. Ensure your organization stays protected and productive with all the latest security and feature updates with Windows 11 Pro, including Copilot your personal AI assistant.

Bad actors continue to increase, and today’s PCs offer better hardware, firmware, and OS security.

    What are the Windows 11 hardware requirements?

    Before purchasing a new computer with Windows 11 or upgrading a computer to Windows 11, users are advised to review the Windows 11 minimum hardware requirements. However, are these minimum requirements enough to carry your day-to-day business tasks? Most likely not.

    It is important to understand that minimum requirements are specified to execute a particular task, Windows 11 in this case. What does this mean? It means Windows 11 minimum requirements will ensure that your computer can run Windows 11, but it will not take into account performance and/or other third-party applications (E.g. QuickBooks, Outlook, MS Excel).
