Half of business PCs can't run Windows Vista

Posted on Sunday, December 10 2006 @ 14:17:49 CET by


A study by Softchoice Research says half of the average business PCs in North America can't run Windows Vista. For Windows Vista Premium, 94 percent don't meet the system requirements needed to run this new operating system.
Within these figures, 41 percent and 78 percent, respectively, require RAM upgrades to meet the minimum and premium system requirements of Vista, says a new study by Softchoice Research, which is expected to be released later this week.

In comparison, when Windows XP was released, some 71 percent of the PCs met its system requirements, Softchoice services consultant Dean Williams said in an executive summary of the report.

"At the time of release 71 percent of the PCs met the system requirements for Windows XP, whereas only 50 percent of the PCs included in this study meet the minimum requirements to run Windows Vista. This difference suggests that jump in system requirements to run Vista presents a significant barrier to adoption," he said.
