Last month, I wrote about the end of Microsoft’s support of Windows XP. Since then, I found a few additional articles that my readers might find of interest.
Lifehacker provides information on upgrading your old computer. I tried doing that with mine and it did not turn out well. If you wish to keep your old computer, I suggest reading the following article: http://lifehacker.com/how-to-move-on-after-windows-xp-without-giving-up-your-1556573928.
However, I recommend buying a new computer. Clark Howard and Kim Komando offer some advice here

If you buy a new computer with Windows 8, you might also need to buy a new router. Check out www.windows.com for recommendations.
