Report for Win 7 Pro x86 on Dell XPS M1210 Laptop
I just remembered to update my system specs for the extra info about my laptop, and I figured I might as well announce the good news for any poor wanderer searching for such info. A few months ago, I installed Win 7 32-bit on my Dell XPS M1210 ultra-portable laptop, and everything has been wonderful!
The laptop itself is from 2006, but at the time I maxed out the specs, and have since taken the best care of it, so it's running perfectly. I'm pretty sure 7 is even faster on it than XP ever was. All of the drivers automatically installed immediately while the OS was installing itself. The only thing I had to install myself was my Synaptics touchpad, so I could turn off tap-to-click, which otherwise was working as a normal default touchpad should. The system also bugged me about installing a driver for my SD memory card reader, but it actually worked even without it. What really surprised me is that my nVidia GeForce Go 7400 was able to do dual-screen without any further configuration! I still haven't installed the extra tools for it, but as I have a behemoth desktop with 2 screens, I do that work here, and the dual screen on the laptop is only used anymore for watching movies on the TV. Since I've figured out HomeGroup, I usually stream movies from my desktop in the bedroom to the laptop plugged into the TV in the living room. Not a single issue. All in all, 7 on this laptop is awesome!

Thanks for the success story!
Your story is especially heartening since it's still not fully sunk in that Win7 is driver-complete in the installer and via optional Updates with few exceptions. Many still following XPired methods think they have to change out all their drivers like chipset and run into problems. Win7 is the authority on its own drivers.
