Windows & Exchange 2003 & Office 2010

We have a couple of Windows 2003 Servers and one Exchange 2003 on HP hardware (purchased 2006 and currently have hardware maintenance contracts). The workstations are mainly Windows XP with a couple of Windows 7 workstations. What are the things I need to consider when putting together a proposal to have the servers replaced?

I am aware of the following
- Outlook 2013 is not compatible with Exchange 2003.
- Office 2013 can be purchased under a MOLP agreement and downgrade to Office 2010
- Office 2010 mainstream support end on 13/10/2015 and extended support date on 13/10/2020. Should I continue to use Office 2010 beyond 2015?
-  If the problem is specific to the program, Microsoft will provide support. If the problem is a result of the combination of the operating system and the program, that particular problem will not be supported.

Is there anything else I need to consider?

Thanks you in advance.

Windows OS license are not transferable if you are using OEM license, hence Windows OS license is required for the new server. And need a Exchange 2013 license required along with the Exchange CAL's.
