Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I purchased a new Hp 14 ryzen 5 5500u laptop today, Just for casual use. Have I made a good decision? Do I need to install an antivirus in it?

@AdiKumar 

Your "good decision" is so vague and ambiguous that we can not possibly answer it.

 

As to AV, Windows 10 comes with Windows Defender already installed and it might also come with McAfee preloaded as well.  Both of these will server as useful AV products.  Anything else, you would have to buy and install.  We don't have ratings of the AV products, so you would have to do online searches to see if you want something else.
