The main reason for me to upgrade is to stay current with my customer's experience and be able to test my desktop code on Windows 11. Since the two machines I use regularly do not have a supported CPU, I'll wait another year for a new company laptop.

Windows 11 should be a more secure platform going forward, but I don't absolutely need it today. In another year or two I'm sure I'll have a new work laptop as the workplace requires more secure computing.

My HP work laptop is over 5 years old. Two years ago I installed a Samsung M2 drive and relegated the spinning disk to bulk storage. It works just fine with the most recent version of Windows 10 21H1. But it will never support Windows 11. That said as it is it works very very well. Fast and stable. I have no complaints, other than resuming after undocking at times.

My home machine is a 3 year old AMD ThreadRipper 1900X. I built the thing hoping it would easily last 10-years like my previous HP tower. It has worked well except for the watercoolers. But after a second failure I ended up getting a large thermal heatsink for the CPU and it works great. Runs cooler than the water based coolers ever did.

I was shocked to find out that Windows 11 wouldn't support the processor. My ASROCK Taichi motherboard does support a ThreadRripper that is on the Win 11 approved list, but I will probably not bother until the CPU price comes down and Win 11 has been tuned.
