Will your next PC be "Vista Ready"?

"Will your next PC be "Vista Ready"?"

Search News


Microsoft have announced that they have given out the specs list to OEM Manufacturers for the requirements of a "Vista Ready" PC. They will have a "Vista Ready" badge to give customers *ahem* confidence that their PC can "run" Vista.

The spec is for the very basic-of-basics Home edition and would not include the "Glass" GUI effects so once again Microsoft are coming up with a bit of a con. The whole shebang is more likely to require much meatier spec but so far Microsoft have not released this.
You will need 512mb memory, a directX 9.0 class video card and a compatible processor from eith AMD, Intel or Via.
