Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
The Windows 8 general availability date is October 26, 2012.
<p>Are there any special requirements for Windows 8 for it to function well? </p>
<p>It looks like I am going to be buying a new laptop to replace my old one. </p>
<p>I assume that you still like Lenovo laptops. What is your favorite model?</p>
<p>Linda, I have not reviewed the hardware requirements for Windows 8. I am waiting for the RTM like everyone else, and the final documentation.</p>
<p>As for the Lenovo laptops, I already have a portable workstations so I am looking for a light travel machine next to replace my T61p. I hope to be able to test the ThinkPad X1 Carbon soon. From what I've seen so far, it looks like it might be a nice machine but the finals specifications and price have not been released.</p>
