Will An Old Laptop Run Windows 7 Well?

Do you think that Windows® 7 will run faster than Windows Vista® or run on an older laptop from the early 2000's?

If you take a look at the data I have gathered below, you might not be as hopeful as you may have already been. Keep in mind that the Windows 7 final version has not been released, so things can still change.

My Findings

  • Windows 7 RC requires the same processor speed and RAM as Windows Vista Premium but less ram than Windows Vista Home Basic. It also requires 1 more GB of hard-drive space than Windows Vista.

The Data

Windows 7 RC - Minimum Requirements


  • 1Ghz processor

  • 1GB RAM.

  • 16 GB hard-drive space

  • 128 MB video

Windows Vista - Minimum Requirements


  • Home Basic

    • 1GHz processor

    • 512 MB RAM

    • 15 GB hard-drive space

    • 32 MB video

  • Premium, Business & Ultimate

    • 1GHz processor

    • 1GB RAM

    • 15 GB hard-drive space

    • 128 MB video

Windows XP Professional - Minimum Requirements


  • 233 Mhz processor

  • 128 Mb RAM

  • 1.5 Gb hard-drive space (They have an asterisk next to this, so read about it in the source link above.)

Throughout the awesome scheme of things you receive an A+ for hard work. Exactly where you actually misplaced us was first in the facts. You know, people say, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more accurate right here. Having said that, permit me reveal to you exactly what did give good results. Your writing can be very persuasive which is possibly the reason why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, despite the fact that I can easily notice the jumps in logic you make, I am not really sure of exactly how you appear to unite your details which in turn produce the final result. For the moment I will, no doubt subscribe to your point but wish in the near future you actually connect your dots better.------------ www.yescustom.com - Custom T shirts etc.
