just bought a toshiba 1K1 with wins 8.1 and want to upgrade to win 10 .....any reason why i should not proceed ??

No reason. But I would create a set of recovery discs before the update, just in case. Then once updated to W10, create another set of recovery discs for W10.

Jollyjohn was correct in saying no reason.

W10 is far better than W8 but not as good as W7. maybe when you get used to it that it may grow on you. But so far it has not worked for me.. W10 is better than W8.

Other than being faster win 10 is pretty similar to win 8.1

however now is the time to upgrade as win 10 is only free upto 29th July.

make an image of your win 8.1 set up to an external source ( with a recuce media to boot from)

do the upgrade

then make another image of the win 10 setup.
