Windows Along with the release of the Windows 7 release candidate came new system requirements for Microsoft's next operating system. This updated set of requirements has been declared final, making them the official system requirements for Windows 7 final. Seeing Microsoft's rather... Dubious past dealings with minimum system requirements, let's take a look at Windows 7's.

No, they're quite realistic. My wife ran XP Pro SP2 on her P3 450 MHz laptop with 256 MB of RAM for several years.


Errm, XP's Minimum requirements were a 233MHz processor with 64MB RAM. Your wife's PC was above even the recommended requirements of a 333Mhz processor with 128MB RAM (coincidentally also the specs of the oldest PC I've ever run XP on...).
