When windows 7 was released, Microsoft made avaulable a utility program to check if an existing Windows PC was compatible.
Is there a similar Microsoft utility for windows 8 ?
I'm not going to upgrade to Windows 8 but I may well install it as a virtual machine using VMWare Workstation. The PC is a Dell Precision M6600.

The Microsoft Windows 8 site offers an upgrade to windows 8 at a cost of £49.99 on DVD and also states that an OEM version is available if I wish to install from new but offers no information on the cost or how to get it.
