microsoft windows 7 to windows 8 upgrade

  baldyx 15:13 15 Jul 2013

I am thinking of upgrading to Windows 8 from current Windows 7(64bit) on my Dell pc with 4gb memory and 286gb disk.

I am not sure 1) if the memory & hard disk are sufficient for the upgrade? 2) upgrade or overwrite windows 7?

Dont you mean downgrade? -grin

Load as a dual boot system and you can choose which one you want to use.

I agree with wiz-king, leave yourself the option in case you do not like 8.

I use W8 on a laptop but having used it I would not pay to upgrade my desktop. W8 boots very quickly and I like it with a touch screen but at that point I stop to think of any other advantages.
