Windows 11 compatibility with T14S AMD

2021-07-01, 13:47 PM

I'm purchasing a new laptop and want to know about windows 11. The list of laptop which are eligible for a free upgrade to windows 11 doesn't appear to include the T14S AMD model. Is that true?

Welcome to the community forum.

 

At some point Lenovo will publish a table of compatible systems. So far all that is publicly available is Windows 11 minimum CPU requirements (currently)

The list on the Lenovo Windows 11 page is by no means an exhaustive list, it states "here are some". Testing and verification is an ongoing process which takes time, we all have to be patient and check back occasionally.

My question is not so much about whether it will be compatible (from what I can see on the Microsoft website, that won't be a problem). The question is whether, if compatible, the upgrade will be free.

From Lenovo: https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/d/windows-11-upgrade

 

Use the PC Health Check app to see if your current PC meets the requirements to run Windows 11. If so, you can get a free upgrade when it rolls out.

Thank you, but this is not a "current PC compatibility" question. It's a software licensing question. If I buy a brand new T14S AMD model loaded with Windows 10, will I bve able to upgrade it to Windows 11 free of charge. In other words, will it ship with a label reading "Free upgrade to Windows 11" on it, or something?

If the laptop is compatible with Windows 11, it will be a free upgrade to Windows 10.  Licensing things are handled by software, there won't be a label with a product key for Windows.  

 

If you ever upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10 which was also a free upgrade, it will be similar to that.  Windows will automatically determine that your machine has a valid license for Windows 10 and offer the upgrade to 11 without entering a product key.

I checked the processor for the T14S AMD... it uses either an AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U or Ryzen 7 Pro 4750U, both of which are on Window's current compatible CPU list.  So yes, if you purchase a T14S AMD, it will be a free upgrade to Windows 11 when available, no need to worry about product keys or labels :)

Windows 11 compatibility with T14S AMD

2021-07-02, 6:30 AM
Every laptop manufactured after July 2016 is supposed to be supported. This applies to most likely new released after July 2016.
