You can see at Lenovo's support site that they have drivers for Windows 10,  so i'd say yes.

Yes. Any Lenovo machine we have that started with Windows 8 will run Windows 10.

The difference in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 cores is not so hreat. So the answer is yes, the machine which runs Windows 8.1 will run also Windows 10.
Check with Lenovo if you get free upgrade to Windows 10 for this laptop.
