Nvidia CEO says low end PC's running Windows 8 will be "exquisite"

September 7, 2011

The same $199 PC that is the bottom-of-the-barrel today will be “exquisite” when running Windows 8, said Huang. It will be super light, and will have a battery running for days and days. Making the equivalent of Apple‘s (AAPL) MacBook “Air” running on an processor based on ARM Holdings (ARMH) designs will be trivial, Huang suggested. A lot of people making some really bold predictions about the quality of Windows 8. Microsoft must be planning to really wow the critics with this OS. Source]]>

  • I wonder if my older PC, Dell running Win XP SP3, would be able to be upgraded to Windows 8 later?  I’ve got a 125 gig hard-drive and only about 60% used … yeah, it was bought several years ago and ancient by today’s standards, but I like it.  Got a desktop bought last year with Win 7 Home premium and daughter’s laptop is Win 7 home premium … don’t see them changing anytime soon.
