    Windows 8 32-bit on Dell Inspiron E1505

    I installed the Windows 8 Release Preview Evaluation copy, Build 8400, on my Dell Inspiron E1505 and it works just fine. I'm wondering if I can expect an upgrade to Win 8 Pro to work as satisfactorily, or might I expect trouble?

    Here are specs:

    Intel Core Duoprocessor T2500
    15.4 Inch Ultrasharp TrueLife Wide-screen
    WSXGA-i, for lnspiron 6400451505
    2GB, DDR2, 533MHz 2 Dimrn
    256MB Ge Force 7300 Graphics card
    8X DVD+i-RW Drive for inspiron 6400i'E1505
    SoundBlaster Advanced Audio for XPS M1710
    Intel PRO1Wireiess 3945 802.11aig Mini Card (54Mbps)
    Dell Wireless 355 Bluetooth Module (2.0 + EDR)

    Thanks for any input.

    Stan 2Gb ram is cutting it close. You will not be able to run more than 3 or 4 programs with that amount of Ram. Other than that you will get by!

    It's doing fine now with 2Gb. My concern is whether the two versions are different in some way that might cause a problem.
