The reviews about Windows 7 have been great, or perhaps greater than Windows Vista. Most people would say Windows Vista is sluggish and hungry while most people would say Windows 7 is better and faster than Windows Vista by miles. That is also part of the reason where I left a blank partition in my hard disk drive. I was thinking of installing Windows Vista on that partition but Windows 7 has made me abandoning the idea. Surprisingly, Windows 7 has a minimum requirement of 1 GHz processor speed, 1GB RAM, 16GB hard disk space and a Directx 9.0 graphics device. But I do not think that is the kind of specifications where Windows 7 could live in.
The lowest price I could get for Windows 7 now is around £50 for Windows 7 home basic while £90 for Windows 7 professional. I believe that they are a real bargain. Our computer specifications now are Intel Pentium Core Duo E5200 2.5GHz, 2GB ddr2 RAM, 500GB hard disk drive and onboard Intel GMA3100 graphic card. Hence, I am pretty sure that our computer would work well with Windows 7 in it.
