Microsoft reveals for the First Time Officially Vista requirements

Microsoft is, officially and for the first time, telling PC owners what are the requirements to run Vista here. You can find a complete list of the minimum requeriments here.


Windows Vista Minimum Supported System Requirements
  • Processor - 800 MHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

  • System Memory - 512 MB (forget about any UMPC with 256 MB of RAM if you are planning to update it to Vista)

  • GPU - SVGA (800x600) (is not 800x480 the default Origami Resolution?)

  • HDD - 20 GB, HDD Free Space 15 GB

  • CD-ROM - At least an external CDROM

  • A Graphics processor that is DirectX 9 capable.


As you can see, probably we are going to be able to "run" Vista in our first generation UMPCs but forget about the "new Windows Aero user experience".. But, if you want to be sure you better run the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor.
