Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system comes out tomorrow.If you want to upgrade, make sure your computer can meet or beat the requirements below:
- 1 GHz processor
- 1 GB RAM for a 32-bit system or 2 GB RAM for a 64-bit system
- 16 GB available hard disk space for a 32-bit system or 20 GB for a 64-bit system
- DirectX 9
How are you supposed to find out this information? If you’re a technical whiz or you kept the manuals from when you bought your machine, you can look it up. But a much easier way is to download Microsoft’s Windows Upgrade Assistant software.
