Windows 10 requires your processor speed to be at least 1 GHz (1 gigahertz). Although the processor requirement is low, it is recommended that you keep a processor with a higher rating. If you play games or use CPU intensive applications and software like 3d modelling programs, processor speed of 2 GHz or higher is better.
For 32-bit operating system, your computer must have at least 1 GB (1 gigabyte) of RAM.
For 64-bit operating system, at least 2 GB (2 gigabyte) is required. Higher RAM values makes your computer perform better. More RAM also means that your computer will be able to comfortably run multiple applications. For gaming and other memory consuming apps, you should keep more RAM.
Hard disk space
For 32-bit version of Windows 10, at least 16 GB (16 gigabyte) of hard disk space is required and for 64-bit version of Windows 10, your computer must have at least 20 GB (20 gigabyte) hard disk. If you keep many large files such as movies, songs, games, etc., your computer should have larger hard disk space.
Any Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver is required to run Windows 10.
Some games and programs might require DirectX 10 or higher for optimal performance.
Minimum recommendations for students:
Whether you get the 13″ Macbook Air, or prefer the 13″ Macbook Pro, we recommend at least 8GB memory and 512GB of storage.
Note: You may need more memory, if it’s going to be used for processor intensive activities (Music, Computer science, or Math/Statistics, etc.)
You may want more storage, for space intensive activities like Multimedia (Photography, Video, etc).
