Sony VAIO PCV-RS602

Sony VAIO PCV-RS602: is this suitable for upgrading to Windows 7? I have installed 2GB of RAM (the maximum possible). Would appreciate advice on which version to use (is Ultimate worth having?) Have not been able to find out if this computer is 32 or 64 bit. Thanks.

Hi sobriquet,Welcome to the forums, Use the upgrade advisor Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor will tell you if you are able to run Windows 7 ,If you need bitlocker then go for Ultimate
Here is the link to the drivers http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/pro...-RS602/updates there appears to be no Windows 7 drivers ,only the update patch ,Use the vista drivers in compatibility mode ,You appear to have a 32bit system

With 2 GB of RAM as a maximum, there's no particular advantage for you to use 64-bit, even if your hardware would otherwise support it.

It's possible but highly unlikely that Ultimate would be worthwhile. Home Premium is all most people ever need.

Here is what Ultimate has that is not available in Professional:

BitLocker, BitLocker To Go, AppLocker, Direct Access, Branche Cache, MUI language packs, boot from VHD.

Here is what Professional has that is not available in Home Premium:

Domain join, Remote Desktop host, location aware printing, EFS, Mobility Center, Presentation Mode, Offline Folders, Group Policy (GP) controls, advanced backup, XP Mode, support for 192 GB of RAM, and support for 2 CPU sockets.

If none of those terms ring a bell, you aren't likely to need them.

You want 32-bit with only 2gb RAM maxed out.
