What are the Windows 7 System Requirements

It’s been a long time since Microsoft Windows 7 was released but still many users have not upgraded to it. Microsoft Windows XP is the operating system that many of you have stuck with due to many reasons including upgrade issues, lack of minimum system requirements, or lack of proper knowledge etc. While Microsoft’s Windows 8 is on the way, users with other than Windows 7 and Vista will not be able to enjoy this stylish Metro-style operating system on their machines.
So, if you want to enhance your experience with Microsoft products and the way you use your machine, it’s time to upgrade to Windows 7. Afterwards only, you will be able to upgrade to Windows 8, the upcoming stylish product which I am sure you are going to love. Before you upgrade to Windows 7 from Windows XP or Vista, it’s better to check whether your system meets the minimum system requirements for Windows 7 upgrade or not. Check them below:
Minimum System Requirements for Windows 7:
  • 1GB RAM for 32-bit version and 2GB RAM for 64-bit version
  • 1 GHz or faster processor for 32-bit (x86) version or 64-bit (x64) version
