In by now, I’m sure everyone has seen commercials and pricing on lots of new computers, laptops and tablets with Windows 8 preinstalled. If you’re not in the market to buy a new computer, but want to get to Windows 8 installed on your existing computer, then you’ll need to know the requirements and options. There are two options –  in-place upgrade your existing Windows 7 computer or install a fresh new copy of Windows 8.  Either way, there are system requirements that you need to meet.
