Your laptop is old for 4 years. I would bite the bullet and buy a new laptop, you would then get Windows 7.

It would be better to just download your applications again, I know it's a pain but it would be easier and you would benefit from the most recent updated programs.

Be aware that some of your Peripherals will not run with Windows 7.

For example, older Printers, Scanners, Cameras and even some Software. So the cost of upgrading is not necessarily just that of the new Lappy.

One of the advantages of having an old Lappy, that does all you need, is that no one is likely to even think of stealing it.
