Microsoft’s much awaited operating system, Windows 7 is going to hit the market by the end of 2009. But you can download Windows 7 RC candidate version and give it a try now. To activate your copy, you can use windows 7 RC product activation keys. But just keep one thing in mind, Windows 7 RC is far far better that other Windows operating systems in terms of look, feel, performance and stability. Since it’s a high end version, you need to have specific system requirements, else Windows 7 won’t be your cup of tea.
Final version of Windows 7 is not expected to have a hell and heaven change, so, must get a system that supports the basic Windows 7 requirements. Here is the list of Windows 7 system requirements :
- 1GHz processor (32-bit or 64-bit)
- 1GB of RAM
- 16GB of disk space (or 20GB for 64-bit users)
- Direct X 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
If you want to use Windows XP mode on Windows 7 platform, you need to have a minimum of 2GB memory with 15 GB additional disk space. Windows 7 demands a decent platform to run smoothly. So if you are planning to try your hands on this finest operating system yet, you need to upgrade your system to meet the minimum requirements at least.
The best part of Windows 7 is that it will run smoothly on notebooks. Vista was eating up much memory and hence it was making your system slow. But Windows 7 is designed to work fine and fast, if it finds the minimum needs, as I mentioned above.
