It's almost here...

Hi everyone,


What is? Windows 11, of course.


This is the biggest release of a new Windows operating system for six years. It looks amazing. And it should be here next month.


Microsoft announced the launch of Windows 11 back in June, at an online event. Since then it’s been difficult to avoid new info and updates on the brand new OS.


If you’re even remotely interested, you’ve probably already seen sneak previews of the sleek new design. If you haven’t, Google it.


And the great news is, you’ll be able to upgrade for free at some point later this year, or next year (we’ll be in touch to do this for you).


Yes, there’s a bit of a wait to upgrade from Windows 10, but since there are new hardware requirements, the extra time may be helpful.


To work with Windows 11, your machines will need to have:


·        A 1GHz, 64-bit processor with two or more cores

·        4GB of RAM

·        64GB of hard drive storage

·        Oh, and Microsoft has said you’ll also need a Trusted Platform Model (TPM) chip, which is a security chip to run the software. TPM 2.0 is recommended, but not a necessity


I’ve just been checking our records of your machines, and some of them won’t be able to run Windows 11.


Shall we get these updated or replaced?
