The tech giant, Microsoft, has officially announced that Windows 11 is on its way during their event “What’s Next for Windows” which happened last June 24, 2021.
It is also said that all users of Windows 10 can upgrade their OS completely FREE! Everyone will be able to get their hands on it, but not all computers may not be able to handle the changes and have its features, and here’s why:
Minimum System Requirements:[ Windows 11 ]
Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with 2 or more cores
RAM: 4 gigabytes (GB)
Storage: 64 GB or larger
Graphics Card: DirectX 12 or later
Display: HD 720P Resolution; at least 9″ screen (diagonally)
Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB)
Storage: 32 GB or larger
Graphics Card: DirectX 9 or later
Display: 800×600 Resolution
See the difference? If your unit have 4-8 GB of RAM, it is recommended that you stay with Windows 10, and switch once you’ve upgraded your trusty companion. If you decided to go for it, be ready to experience difficulties in terms of multi-tasking or operating multiple apps/programs at once.
Windows 10 is NOT saying farewell. In fact, the support is until January 9, 2029 which gives us more time to be fully ready for the new era of operating systems.
As users, we are ecstatic to know right away what the new OS brings to the table, but let’s not forget that Windows 10 has not yet reached its peak (8 more years). Before we jump into the bandwagon, let’s stick to the one that is compatible with our systems and doesn’t stress its RAM too much.
