The Best Preparation for Windows 8

Their preparation for the release of Windows 8 is their announcement of their first tablets that will use this revolutionary operating system. Asus announced their tablet named Asus Tablet 810 that is also a netbook. Their tablet can be attached to its corresponding keyboard and when it is attached it will look like a normal netbook. It will run Windows 8 using the “Clover Trail” chip that is newly announced by Intel.

Samsung is also joining the Windows 8 bandwagon by releasing a new hybrid pc (laptop and tablet combination) called the Series 5. This hybrid pc is a beast, for it can last for continuous use for about 10 hours.

Acer also has their own competitor in the Windows 8 market by giving a preview of their Ionia W700. This is a monster compared to the other two because it uses Intel’s Ivy Bridge architecture – which can be used on quad-core processors. This means that the processing power and user response of this tablet is blazingly fast, almost comparable to Apple’s IoS in their IPad line. This is a perfect time to use it because Windows 8’s Metro User Interface needs to have a lot of processing room to provide the maximum tablet experience.

These 3 premiere companies are already prepared for Windows 8. The question is, are the consumers prepared to use another revolutionary flagship operating system from Microsoft.

Microsoft Windows 8 is a failure. Though many have anticipated its release, the operating system encountered so many problems including complaints from users when it was finally released. Its development started back in 2009 before Microsoft Windows 7 was released. Windows 8 was released to manufacturing on August 1, 2012 and on October 26, 2012 for general availability.

Because of the numerous complaints, Windows 8.1 was released on October 17, 2013. This release, according to Microsoft, is only a Service Pack update for Windows 8 and it addresses some of the aspects that were criticized by reviewers and added improvements to different aspects of the operating system.

The reign of Windows 8 didn’t last long unlike Windows XP because on January 12, 2016 support for Windows 8 has been discontinued. To continue receiving updates and support, Windows 8 users should update their operating system to Windows 8.1. For those who are still interested to try this operating system, make sure your computer meets the following system requirements:

  • Processor – to run Microsoft Windows 8, your computer should be running on 1 GHz or faster processor.
  • RAM – to run Microsoft Windows 8, your computer should be installed with at least 1 GB RAM for 32-bit version or 2 GB RAM for 64-bit version.
  • Hard drive space – to install Microsoft Windows 8, you need 16 GB hard drive space for 32-bit version or 20 GB hard drive space for 64-bit version.
  • Video card – to run Microsoft Windows 8, you should have a Microsoft DirectX 9-compatible video card or higher.
