Running Windows 11 on old computer -buying advice sought

    Hi all,

    I would like to try Windows 11 and to buy an old laptop / tpwer in order to test.

    What might be a sensible system specs to give a reasonable usability?

    How do I get a copy of Windows 11 and licence, how to activate it on an old system and if it turns out the system used is not good enough can that copy of Windows 11 be moved legally and how onto a newer better suited system?

    Regards all
