I've been very impressed with Win 7 RC on my desktop so today I decided to try a clean install of RC on my Dell Mini 12 with 1GB RAM and an 80GB hard drive.
I installed from a USB stick drive and Win 7 correctly installed all devices except the GMA 500 video driver
. The Vista video driver seems to work fine. Since it was the Ultimate version I expected that I would have to uninstall many components that I didn't need - i.e. Media Center. However, I was surprised that Windows 7 somehow determined that it was a netbook and installed a very lite version of Win 7. Nothing to uninstall.
So far it seems much snappier to XP and bluetooth works much better!
Good job Microsoft!
