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
(2MBi2GHz.!667MHz)
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!
