Official Press Release

Crucial Technology, a division of Micron and one of the world’s leading memory upgrade providers, today announced an easy-to-use online tool that evaluates a user’s PC to determine if their system can handle the memory requirements of the Microsoft® Windows Vistaâ„¢ Basic, Premium, and Ultimate operating systems.

Crucial’s innovative System Scanner tool analyses the user’s current system components and compares it to Microsoft’s minimum system specifications for the Windows Vista operating system. In just one click, the tool tells a user what memory is already installed in their PC or notebook, compared to what it will need to run the Windows Vista OS.

Additionally, the scanner displays guaranteed-compatible memory upgrades to maximise the Windows Vista OS experience. “Many users have no idea whether or not their computers and laptops are prepared to handle the memory-intensive requirements of the Windows Vista OS,” stated John Egan, Crucial’s Web marketing manager. “The Crucial System Scanner tool takes all of the guesswork out of preparing for the Windows Vista OS upgrade.”

Microsoft has announced that it will launch the Windows Vista OS to consumers in early 2007. Touted as Microsoft’s most powerful operating system to date, it has a wealth of new features and enhancements that require considerably more memory than its predecessors. Upgrading memory is an affordable, effective way to get a system ready for the Windows Vista OS, and the Crucial System Scanner tool makes determining these memory needs simple.

The tool is free and available at or by clicking the “Am I Vista Ready?” button.
