If your Laptop is equipped with Intel Core i3 3217U Processor then will it be eligible for Windows 11 upgrade?
Let’s check if it is compatible for latest upgrade or not…..
Few Requirement of Windows 11 needed for your any laptop are….
- Atleast a dual core processor with minimum 1ghz clock speed.
- 4GB or more RAM.
- 64GB or more storage
- UEFI & Secure Boot Bios.
- TPM 2.0 capable.
- Graphics support of atleast DirectX-12 with WDDM 2.0 driver.
- Internet connection and Microsoft account on first time activation.
To check whether your old laptop is compatible with windows 11 or not. Download PC health checkup app by Microsoft.
Unfortunately Intel core i3 3217u lacks on TPM 2.0 capability and is also not on the list of processor eligible for upgrade. Only core i3 8th gen or later model are compatible for upgrade to windows 11. But still one would receive free upgrades till 2025. So still 3-4 more years of usage for your old laptop.
Though there are few workaround(search youtube) to make your laptop work on windows 11 however I would recommend not to do so. As windows 10 is far more stable for atleast next few years that is 2025. So better use your old machine till 2025. I guess by that time it would be due for upgrade itself with wear & tear.
