Hi,

Without knowing the exact model number of your laptop, it may be, that given the age of your laptop, (you state that you have Vista installed), it may not even work properly with Win 10.

By this I mean that there may not be the correct Win 10 drivers available for the hardware that is installed or that the manufacturer has not provided BIOS support for Win 10 for your particular model. Therefore maybe not all the features and facilities that you have in the laptop now under Vista will be available to you with Win 10 installed, e.g. WiFi or Touchpad mightn't work for instance.

If it turns out that there is Win 7 support for your laptop it may be that it might work OK with Win 10. Also I have looked at the specs for some variants of the G60 model and they all only support a maximum of 4GB of RAM. Whilst this is enough for Win 10, in my opinion having 8GB of RAM allows for a better performing OS.

Upon further checking some HP G60 variants are supported by HP for Win 10.

So the conclusion is that it is necessary to know your exact model number to determine if an upgrade is even feasible and therefore worth the expense.
