VB2010 Hardware Requirements - Processor Speed

Last Modified: 2013-12-09
Why does microsoft state under 'Hardware Requirements" for VB2010 Professional at http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/products/2010-editions/professional
say that the computer has to have a 1.6Ghz processor?

The reason i ask is because i have a Samsung X120 notebook with an Intel Pentium SU7300 1.3Ghz processor with 3Gb RAM.

Does this mean that VB2010 will not work at all on this computer? , or will it work, but just slowly?
Watch Question

More Likely I will Run fine. This are only requirements that Microsoft recommends.  But you should be fine. Dont worry
These are just recommendations, almost any machine from the last 8 years would work, although you would most likely notice a speed change in the build times, moving controls around, etc.


Thanks for your replies so far. I am hoping to get a YES IT WILL WORK BUT SLOWLY or NO IT WONT WORK AT ALL
