    Will this PC run Windows 8?

    Is there a monitor or some kind of Touch Screen conversion to work on this PC?

    Could I dual boot 7 with 8 in a partition after the recovery patition and keep it on there?

    Probably. Have you visited the Compatibility Center?

    If you buy a full priced retail version of Windows 8, yes. If you buy an Upgrade (discounted price) version you are not to use the qualifying XP, Vista or Windows 7 after installing Windows 8.

    Thank you for answering. I will find out on that site. I am almost sure that it will run Win 8.

    I agree; it is that "almost" that caused me to answer "probably."

    I think that's an interesting question about adding a touch screen. I have no clue about how much would be involved.

    You're welcome. :)
