    • Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

    And also windows 8 works with all those programs and devices that are compatible with windows 7.
    however in some cases some program or drivers require update or you have to re install those programs.

    Hi,
    Compatibility was r real concern for the Microsoft engineers and they built a kernel that has recognition codes for almost all wired and wireless devices.
    The most recent developments are all integrated in the device recognition list of windows 8 list.
    All devices those comply Bluetooth, fireware, USB and their latest versions along with their older versions are compatible.
    Wired devices like CD/DVD, Blue Ray, mouse, light pen all are compatible.
    All programs those ran on winXP, win 7 will run on windows 8. All the softwares those has compatibility to run on Intel processor will surely run on win 8.

    Thank you.
