How to future-proof your hardware for Windows 8

Loyd Case | Sept. 19, 2012
It's like a special consumer-tech corollary of Murphy's law: Your PC will inevitably die just before a new Windows OS is about to ship. You need a new laptop immediately, and you can't wait to buy one that comes with the new OS preinstalled.

And when you resell the system or hand it down to your kids, they might want Windows 8. It makes sense to try to accommodate future possibilities when you buy today's hardware. You'll reduce the likelihood that you'll encounter a dead end or have to drop even more money for better compatibility in the near future; and in the long run, you'll save both time and money.
