    Hello Noah,

    My name is Krishna and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell. To the best of my knowledge, upgrading to Windows 8 does not lead to any hardware failure.

    The below link discusses the critical steps that you should take before and after Windows 8 upgrade, such as backing up data, updating drivers prior to upgrade, and verifying that the system supports an upgrade to Windows 8.


    Hope this helps.

    It will work but only PARTIALLY

    Windows 8 comes with two modes:

    1) Windows 7 style

    2) new "Metro" Windows 8 style

    The Windows 7 style desktop will work without a problem and you can install programs.I have network with similar specs and I don't have problems.

    The Windows 8 style will NOT work because Dell Mini's resolution is not enough to support the Windows 8 apps.It requires at least 1280x... but yours is only 1024x...
