These Dell, HP, Asus and Acer PCs are ready for Windows 11

Windows 11 list of supported devices

Windows 11 will begin rolling out to devices later this year,
with testers in the Windows Insider program getting the early
bits next week. Ahead of the wider rollout, PC makers – Dell,
HP, Asus, and Acer – have shared the list of devices supported
for Windows 11 upgrade.

Most modern devices that shipped with Windows 10 should have no
problem handling Windows 11. According to Microsoft officials,
you’ll need a processor that’s at least 1 GHz faster with TPM
1.2 or newer support, 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. You’ll
also need a Microsoft account if you use Windows Home.

The big question is what devices will be able to run Windows
11? Thankfully, leading PC makers have shared a list of devices
compatible with Windows 11.

List of Dell PCs eligible for Windows 11

Every Dell Windows 10 PC sold through the company’s e-commerce
platform would be eligible for the new operating system,
according to the company. Additionally, older devices will be
supported as well.

Here’s a list of devices tested by Dell for Windows 11 upgrade:

  • Alienware desktop and laptop
  • G-Series desktop and laptop
  • Inspiron desktop and laptop
  • XPS desktop and laptop
  • Vostro desktop and laptop
  • Latitude
  • OptiPlex
  • Precision Workstation
  • Mobile Precision

As you can see in the above list, the most popular products –
Alienware, Inspiron, XPS, Latitude and others – are supported.
You can also visit Dell’s support
page and search for a device to see if it has been tested
for the latest version of Windows 11.

Even if your device is not listed, it might still receive the
update as long as it meets the minimum requirements highlighted
above.

However, it is worth pointing out that Dell won’t provide you
with new drivers if your device is not tested by them. Only
tested machines will receive drivers from the company, but you
can still install drivers from Intel, AMD or Nvidia manually.

List of HP PCs eligible for Windows 11

HP has also published a list of devices supported for Windows
11, but the list currently highlights flagship products only. A
comprehensive list is currently not available and we’re
expecting more details from the PC maker later this year.

Here’s a list of devices tested by HP for Windows 11 upgrade:

  • HP Spectre
  • HP ENVY
  • HP Pavilion portfolios (HP ENVY x360 15, Spectre x360 14,
    the HP Pavilion All-in-One)
  • OMEN 16, Victus by HP 16, OMEN 30L Desktop and other OMEN
    products.
  • HP Elite and HP Pro devices like the HP Elite Dragonfly G2.
  • HP ZBook Studio G8 and Z by HP workstations.

As mentioned, we’re expecting a full list of tested devices
later this year. For now, it looks like HP has only tested
flagship products.

List of Acer PCs eligible for Windows 11

Acer has promised a free Windows 11 upgrade for all devices
announced in the past three and currently available on the
market. A list of compatible hardware is currently not
available on the company’s website.

As mentioned at the outset, Microsoft formally announced
Windows 11 on June 24 with a long list of new features,

redesigned Windows Store,
Microsoft Photos app,
File Explorer, and more.

More on next generation of Windows

Needless to say, Windows 11 is a big upgrade and it also comes
with plenty of changes to hardware requirements. In some cases,
you’ll see the error message “This
PC can’t run Windows 11” on compatible hardware, but
Microsoft has promised a fix, which will be released soon.

It’s also worth pointing out that Windows 11 requires TPM 1.2
or newer. If you don’t have a TPM module, you won’t be able to
install the update, at least officially.
