You said this

I looked it up, and supposedly Windows 10 will require the same requirements as Windows 8.1.
Then I responded with this

Jesse Williams,
I thought the minimum system requirements was going to based on Windows 7 service pack one, so Microsoft could get more system running windows 10.

Mine is a 2011 or 2012 Acer laptop. It said I needed to review some things. Those things were that I would need to install an app to play DVD's (which I don't fool with anyways). Sidebar gadgets aren't supported. Secure Boot isn't compatible with your PC. They said I would need to reinstall the ATI Catalyst Control Center, and the ATI Catalyst Install Manager. Also, something about iTunes.

To check, see if this link will open. C:\Users\Jesse\Documents\Windows 8_1 Upgrade Assistant.html
Nobody here will be able to open a link to your [C] drive.

You can use this tutorial by Brink to upload a file so folks here can see it:

Ah, it's not on the allowable file types you can upload.
You can zip it and try uploading the zip file.

Your PC looks fine for an upgrade.

Here's what's in the report that is not listed as "compatible"

What about Windows 10? I'm guessing the same. Yes, I saw those that I need to review. Should I worry about them?

OEM Windows should be eligible for the free upgrade. We'll all know more as Win10 RTM gets closer (at least 7 months away by my guess, probably closer to 9 months)

It's a good question.

The information I have doesn't say anything about the device type. I'll go out on a limb and say tablets and phones will be included in the Win10 upgrade offer
