2015 line up of Windows PCs are designed for the upcoming OS and easy to upgrade


HP announced that their currently shipping portfolios of Windows-based PCs are expected to be able to upgrade to Windows 10 when available on July 29, 2015.

“Working closely with Microsoft we designed all our 2015 products to be ready for Windows 10,” said Ketan Patel, director, Personal Systems, PPS, HP India.

“As a result, customers who purchased or plan to buy a 2015 Windows PC from HP should have a smooth transition to Windows 10. We have a strong relationship with Microsoft and together we believe in offering the best computing experiences for our customers,” Patel added.


When HP designed its 2015 products, it planned its entire 2015 portfolio to be Windows 10 ready. While HP will update the 2015 products to Windows 10 after it ships, HP PCs currently shipping with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 are expected to upgrade to Windows 10. To make this an excellent experience, HP is working with both hardware component suppliers and Microsoft to have full coverage for drivers for Windows 10.

“HP’s collaboration and feedback during the Windows 10 planning process has been extremely valuable,” said Peter Han, VP Worldwide OEM Marketing, Microsoft.

He further stated, “We look forward to HP launching their new devices that will light up Windows 10 capabilities and provide new experiences to our joint customers around the world.”


The Path to Windows 10

Consumers who choose to purchase a PC before July 29, 2015 can upgrade to Windows 10 with qualified HP technicians to run the complete upgrade process when it becomes available on July 29, 2015.
