Windows 10 Anniversary Update to make new PCs desirable

Windows 10

The new Windows 10 Anniversary Update are boasting features that will make new PCs desirable. The upgrade to Windows 10 for free has ended and analysts believe people will buy a new PC instead of shelling out $119.99 to $199.99 for a Windows 10 license.

Companies like Lenovo and HP are slowly getting rid of lingering Windows 7 Professional PC models, which will ultimately force holdover users to Windows 10.

PC makers are using this time to toss older Windows OS in new PCs. Lenovo "will migrate fully to Windows 10 as the operating system on new systems,” but they will still continue support for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 systems.

"As the Windows 10 Anniversary Update begins on August 2, 2016, we are fully committed to shipping all Lenovo PCs with Windows 10 across both our consumer and commercial product lines, including the multimode Yoga convertibles, legendary ThinkPads, Y series gaming devices and Miix detachables," a Lenovo spokeswoman said in an e-mail.
