How to Check Your Hardware Requirements


  • Go to Start > Control Panel and look for an item named "System," "System and Maintenance," or something similar. (The name varies depending on which Windows version your computer has.)
  • You will be able to find the CPU speed, the amount of RAM, the Windows version, and a few other specification details.


  • Click on the "Apple" icon in the top left corner of your desktop and select "About this Mac."
  • Select "More Info" in the dialog box that pops up — this will bring up a new window with very detailed information on your system specs.
