Hi Kev451982

I think you would run it fine but you can always check here - Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows

What operating system does it have on at the moment? Vista?

You need to check if the processor can take 64bit if you are only running 32bit at the moment.

After that there is another issue I see popping up from time to time and that is people trying to get things working like sound and wireless network cards. As the drivers for all of these are on the original cd that came with the laptop (if you even got one?)

You need to check if you can get windows 7 drivers for these things before you do it otherwise you might run into issues.

I think that's all that springs to mind at the moment.

You should have no problems whatsoever.

I just checked your system spec,

Although Microsoft say 32-bit versions of Windows Vista support 4GB of RAM they actually support 4GB of *address space*, not RAM.

The useable amount for 32bit is around 3.2-3.4gb but windows will see it as 3.

You need a 64bit operating system to run more than that.

7 premium 64bit will allow you to use 16gb and Ultimate will allow upto 96gb iirc.

Acer seems to have a full complement of Win7 drivers for that notebook, so you're good.
