End of life for Windows 10

End of life for Windows 10 is the 14th of October 2025. We appreciate that this may sound like a long way off, but we implore you to contact IT support sooner rather than later to discuss your options and arrange a plan of action. Please note: that this end of life is quite unlike those previously issued by Microsoft.
This time Microsoft have defined a *strict* set of hardware requirements and systems that fail to meet these requirements will be completely unable to upgrade to Windows 11. The majority of systems purchased in the last six years will meet the requirements (This includes all Lenovo systems provide by Physics IT).
