Will my laptop run Windows 8?

If you have recently purchased a Windows 8 laptop, then you’re good. But what if you have purchased a laptop or a computer last year? Does that mean you cannot run Windows 8? Definitely not! In fact, Microsoft is offering you to upgrade to Windows 8 if you have Windows 7 for less than the full price. If that doesn’t convince you that your laptop can certainly be capable, then I suggest you read through:

This is the list of the minimum requirements that your laptop should have in order to upgrade to Windows 8. If one of these doses not meet the requirements, I suggest you upgrade it.

  • 1 Ghz processor or faster
  • 1 GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-Bit)
  • 16 GB hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics card

Keep in mind that there is absolutely no need to reinstall your apps when upgrading to Windows 8 IF your PC is in Windows 7. If you’re running Vista or XP, then you have to reinstall them.

If you’re still not mighty sure about it, I highly suggest you download Microsoft’s Upgrade Assistant which will scan your laptop or PC and check if it can run Windows 8.
