The new Windows 8 Start Screen, making use of ...

Windows 8 has opened up the consumer preview allowing anyone and everyone to kick the tires and take it for a spin. It has been a long journey towards the release, and the Developer Preview has been out for a while now, but it is time for the rest of the world to see what is under the hood. We at LDG have links for you to try it out, you have the standard Windows 8 Consumer Preview as well as another page that gives you Windows 8 CP ISO setup files. The files are a bit large running you 32 Gigs for the 32-bit and 3.3 Gigs for the 64-bit versions. The hardware requirements are not too steep, about the same as Windows 7 was.

  • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
  • RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
  • Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device or higher
  • To use touch, you need a tablet or a monitor that supports multitouch.
  • To access the Windows Store and to download and run apps, you need an active Internet connection and a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768.
  • To snap apps, you need a screen resolution of at least 1366 x 768.
