Is that likely then?
I had assumed not but I just found something that said one had been added but the others were not compatible.
It's from August.

I guess it depends on whether they want people using Windows 11 or not. I certainly won't be replacing my daughter's laptop any time soon as she only plays Minecraft on it and it's more than capable enough for that. I heard that they'll be adding more AMD cpus to the compatible list soon so who knows. Apparently they will let you do a clean install on an unsupported CPU but may not officially support it which is fair enough.

I upgraded my Dell with an i5-5200U, 8GB and SSD from 10 to 11 using the ISO image. Seems pretty snappy. Not necessary to wipe it. Makes you accept a disclaimer and of course ymmv.

Just looking at the latest Staples flyer. There are two 14" laptops, one of them an HP Stream, (N6000) 4/128gb - $470 down to $300.
The other, a Lenovo (AMD 3020e), 4/64gb is $330 down to $230.

Neither CPUs have scores on "benchmark" that would set the pulses racing, but both apparently compatible for W11.
