Is Your Computer Vista Ready???

vista.pngJanuary 30, 2007 is the consumer launch date of Windows Vista. Is your computer Vista ready? To make sure that you get the most out of Windows Vista, you should make sure that your computer is Vista Premium Ready. If you plan on buying a computer for Vista either now or after the release make sure that the computer is Vista Premium Ready and not just Vista compatible. Qualifying for Vista Compatible is to run just Windows Vista Home Basic which doesn’t include the new Aero Glass features which is one of the key new technologies. See Microsoft’s Windows Vista Get Ready web site for more info.

A Windows Vista Premium Ready PC includes at least:

  1. 1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  2. 1 GB of system memory.
  3. Support for DirectX 9 graphics with a WDDM driver, 128 MB of graphics memory (minimum)
  4. Pixel Shader 2.0 and 32 bits per pixel.
  5. 40 GB of hard drive capacity with 15 GB free space.
  6. DVD-ROM Drive
  7. Audio output capability.
  8. Internet access capability.
