Can my 6 yr old laptop handle Windows 8 pro?(upgrade)
Hey all, i have a 6 year old Samsung SensQ35 Laptop with WinXP pre-installed (says "Vista Capable" on a sticker on the laptop... but we know how that turned out!). The specs are:
Intel CoreDuo T2300 @ 1.6ghz (65nm)
2.3gb DDR2 RAM @ 4-4-4-16
5400RPM 61GB hdd
Intel 945GM integrated graphics
It runs WinXP fine with no stuttering or slowdowns. My question is, if i upgrade to Windows 8 for $39.99, can this laptop handle Windows 8 or will it be slow, stuttery, & sluggish? I ask cause its a really old laptop (i'm surprised it even lasted this long!). Would Win8 detect the drivers for it automatically or do i have to manually find them?
Thanks for any feedback!
