According to Dells Website, this item is not being upgraded to Windows 10. Doesn't necessarily mean you can't upgrade, but it could cause issues as there are no Windows 10 drivers made for this device. So features of your computer may not work at all.

Product not tested for Windows 10 upgrade

Dell is not testing or developing Windows 10 drivers for this product. If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected.

As stated doesn't mean that you can't upgrade or run win-10
Just means you might have touchpad issues... and no bios updates

You can however clean install windows 10 after using a clone or restore a system image to another ssd or hdd and upgrade it

This will at least give you the original install so you can get back to where you are now
Plus you'll have a system image too :)

If you do decide to upgrade I would search the forum for a way to backup your computer now to make the return to Win 7 faster if you don't like it.
