Some say win 7 works well on older systems unlike Vista but the problem is the Computer manufactures are not supporting the Win 7 drivers and laptops with out dedicated video Memory of at least 128mb will not run full areo, so I stick with XP SP3 for the older laptops and this one is a Core Duo with the 128 so its a "2" and runs full 7. with 1.5gb ram I get pretty much full power, Ram is almost always at the 40 to 48% load so its not bad at all!
By the way my laptop is a Dell D420 with a LV 1.2 ghz Core Duo ( 32 bit) I choose this because its less then 3lbs with the 3 hour battery and 3 LBs with the 4.5 hour battery, so its light and its a Latitude with a Mag alloy case its supposed to be tough for lugging around!
