Hi:

 

There are Windows 10 drivers for that model, so W10 should work fine.

You can upgrade the PC for free to W10 and see how it works, by clicking on the blue Update Now button at the link below.

 

Download Windows 10 (microsoft.com)

 

If W10 does not perform up to snuff, then you have 10 days to go back to W8.1 according to this link.

 

Go back to Windows 8.1 (microsoft.com)

 

Microsoft will be ending support for W8.1 next year (January 10, 2023).
