Windows 8 hardware requirements

I was surprised at the low numbers in Microsoft's recommended system requirements, however it might be if you don't plan to run any applications.


Mimimum: CPU 1 GHz or faster, 1GB memory and 16GB disk for 32-bit, 2GB memory and 20 GB disk for 64-bit, graphics card for Microsoft DirectX 9 with WDDM driver.

Recommended: touch screen, internet connection.

P.S. Touch screen for a desktop monitor is kinda dumb.

P.P.S. Can't disagree with the recommendation of Linux Mint. It is pretty easy to learn after Windows - very little muscle memory needs retraining. On the plus side, you get multiple desktops.
