Question

Windows 10 To buy a new PC with Win 10 or not?

I've just been informed that my 4 year old All-in-One (DELL) Inspiron ONE 2310 Intel (R) Core (TM) i5 CPU, M 480C 2.67GHz - 64 bit, Windows 7 (with 4GB RAM) system is not compatible with Windows 10.
My question is... should I consider purchasing a new PC with Win 10 or should I spend time and money trying to fix multiple problems on my 4 yr old All-in-One? Troubleshooter not working, can't save an Excel file, Java can't download, can't print emails - (last is probably my fault for changing back to Outlook and messing up the settings!)
My phone support advisor said to back-up everything so that he could investigate fully. Does he mean revert to factory settings? Is this 4 yr old PC capable - does it have the capacity to continually be upgraded with all the other regular things like Java, PDFs, Outlook etc, and will I be able to get Win 7 support in the future? Or should I buy a new PC with Win 10 and a larger capacity?

Clarification Request
I'd keep running that with 7.

While I do like the move to 10, if it's at 7, that's fine for many and many years.

-> about the issues. All look like issues folk have solved in this forum for years.

Java for me is pretty simple most of the time. I use JAVARA to remove it all then a trip to Ninite.com to install. HOWEVER most things don't need JAVA. I'd try this without JAVA for now.
