Microsoft has officially unveiled Windows 11, the new operating system that will replace Windows 10. Windows 11 looks to feature a more streamlined design layout, with a centralised tool bar and windows with more curved edges.
It looks very similar to macOS, but that’s certainly not a bad thing.
Windows 11 will also reportedly be faster than Windows 10, with quicker boot up times, improved speeds for web browsers and more efficiency to maximise battery life for laptops. To know more about Windows 11 OS, please read here.
The free Windows 11 update – coming later this year and free for eligible Windows 10 machines – won’t ask too much of desktop or laptop machines running the current operating system.
Microsoft has published the minimum specs required for the update, which can be seen below. The long and short of it is a 64-bit processor with just 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
It’s largely great news for those not quite ready to buy a new Windows PC in order to access the dramatically revamped operating system. However, 32-bit machines won’t be invited to the party. Here’s the lowdown from the horse’s mouth.

Microsoft also says the PC Health Check app will enable PC users to perform a check to ensure their machine can handle the update. That app can be downloaded here.
The Windows 11 operating system enjoyed a spectacular debut during the live stream on June 24. You can get a run down of the new Start menu, taskbar, widgets, snap tools, Android apps, app store and gaming features in our Windows 11 hub.
The company hasn’t confirmed whether Windows 7 machines will be eligible for the free upgrade, or whether there’ll be a charge involved. There’s usually loopholes most users can exploit one way or another anyway.
