Win 7 x64 Home Premium (and x86 VirtualBox VM)/Win10

As theog says, run the Upgrade advisor, but judging from the specs alone it will very happily run Win 7 - installing XP would require drivers for the SATA disk.

Acer's website contains any drivers you may need for WIn 7 - so you should be good to go
(note that if you're not in the UK t would be a good idea to go first to and then select your area, and follow the links to Support, then Drivers and Downloads.)
