Can I upgrade to Windows 10

I've got a HP Pavilion dv7 laptop that has Windows Vista OS. I wanted to find out if I can load Windows 10 onto it. General Google search says Windows 10 needs:

1 GHz or faster processor,

Ram: 2 GB (64bit)

16 GB free hard disk space

MS DirectX 9 Graphics device with WDDM driver

This laptop has:

Processor: AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core Mobile RM-70 2.00GHz

Ram: 4 GB (64bit OS)

and once I clear old stuff off would have plenty of hard disk space.

It appears to meet the specs (but i'm not a technical person) and the one thing I'm not sure about is the Graphics card. It's a ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics, which I read elsewhere (another general google search) that it is supposed to work but may not work for Windows 10.

If anyone has more specific information I would really appreciate it. This Laptop is in great shape, has a larger screen than my new one, so I would like to keep it.

Yes, you can upgrade. It will actually work better than Vista. However, you do have to purchase a license.
