Windows 7 Final System Requirements

According Mary Jo Foley’s All About Microsoft blog, Microsoft made the final system requirements for Windows 7 available today. Here it is:

  • 1 GHz processor (32- or 64-bit)
  • 1 GB of RAM (32-bit); 2 GB of RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB of available disk space (32-bit); 20 GB of available disk space (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

The requirements look reasonable and realistic this time around compared to Vista which recommended 512 MBs of RAM as the minimum. If you plan on storing a lot of data on your PC, I suggest you choose more than 16 or 20 GBs to install it on.

    Good. I guess I can easily upgrade to Win7 on my fairly cheap lappy. 🙂

    Yep…I\’m looking forward to the final (yes, I know the RC is probably stable enough. But I have some apps that I\’m afraid might not work with Win7….even though most do).
