    Will windows 8.1 install on this computer?


    Hi guys,

    i would like to take advantage of miracast, so ill have to buy windows 8.1. The only thing is I have a 4 year old laptop, core i5 with WIDI. It is an HP DM4 laptop. Will miracast still work?

    I bought some new samsung F series TVs which support all share (essentially miracast).

    MY goal is to mirror my laptop screen to my TV, and with my eye-fi card/DSLR shoot images directly to my Laptop/TV.

    I just want to make sure my computer is compatible before I buy windows 8.1

    Thanks

    The easiest way to check compatibility is to use Windows Upgrade Assistant.
