Hey guys just wondering if my specs would run Windows 7 or if I should just stay with Xp Sp3 until I can upgrade some hardware? Thanks in advance.

Buy a new laptop. You don't have enough memory, the gpu is obsolete and 4200RPM hard drives are too slow to run 7 indexing.

I would wait until you can get some new hardware. You could look at getting retail Windows so you can use it until you get new hardware then take Windows with you to the new machine.....just a thought (an expensive thought)

You can run Windows 7 even at 512MB of RAM. There is a thread about running 7 on old machines...someone had theirs on a Pentium II!!!!!

It won't be the fastest experience but it will be usable none the less

Well I get Windows 7 for free from school so I can just hold off until I can get a new Computer. I will just stay with XP Sp3 for now since I dont have the money for a new computer.

Would it be cheaper to build a laptop or just buy one? Just starting in the IT field have a basic understanding of the stuff currently working on getting Microsoft Certs. Would love to have the knowledge on these OS's.

Unless you are a hardware specialist...the average person can't build a laptop

You can buy an off-brand one (such as one from IBUYPOWER) that is normally significantly cheaper than name-brand
