For your IdeaPad 320-15IAP, there are only three CPUs listed (all soldered to the system board): https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/Lenovo_Laptops/ideapad_320_15_Intel/ideapad_320_15_Intel_Spec.PDF, none of which are listed in the most current minimum CPU list: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors. In addition, your system does not show as having a TPM (current minimum is v2.0), and cannot be retrofit with one.

 

Therefore, unless Microsoft drastically modifies the minimums, your laptop will not be supported for upgrade to Win11. I would recommend watching for MS updates as Win11 gets closer to public release.

 

HTH to clarify.

Hello,


I am not familiar with the IdeaPad 320-151AP, but from searching, it appears the model shipped with several different CPU options.

 

Can you tell us which model of CPU the IdeaPad has?  You can find this out by running the System Information (filename: MSINFO32.EXE) utility and telling us what it says under the Processor section.

 

Regards,

On this hardware, you will hardly notice a performance gain when switching to Windows 11.

Gireroz - That is not an appropriate reply to the question asked - who said anything about performance ?
