How to Verify You Meet System 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.
