I running Win 8 on a netbook with 1.5G of RAM and a 1.6Ghz Atom processor. If this netbook can handle it, I'm sure your laptop can.

Do a clean install instead of the upgrade option otherwise all the junk owl still be on there and remember to backup all your files.

A clean install is always preferable.
