............I would rather use xp or vista ..............

The problem there is that those ancient operating systems haven't had any Windows updates for years so they're more vulnerable to infections. Also, because they're so old, you won't find any up-to-date web browsers or software available and you'll be lucky to find any new printers etc that work. Some anti-virus providers do still cater for XP/Vista users though.

Windows updates for Windows 7 ends in January so it's only a matter of time before the same happens to that operating system too.

If you plan on keeping your laptop for more than three years or so then you really should buy one with Windows 10.
