I read that article recently and after that I installed Windows 7 Ultimate build 7068 on my son's machine. It is Pentium III ,512 mb ram ,video card is the only thing newer - Radeon 2400 Pro! I was amazed! It works just as fast as XP professional with SP3 , in some things its even faster! No flickering ,no BSODs every day like on Vista (yeah ,I've tried it too on same machine).On this picture Aero is turned off ,but its also works fine! So ,we can really tell that this time guys from Microsoft have made a good job! I just hope that it will stay so in final product!!

Just out of interest kizo2703 - why have you blocked out the product id in the picture? I can understand blocking out the computer name if it has apart of your sons name in it, but blocking out the product id is useless - a) the beta keys are free and b) no matter what beta key is used, I'm pretty sure the product id stays the same anyway.

I have installed 5 builds on an E-machines T5048. Pentium 4 with 512 MB of RAM. They have all performed fine. 7077 is running like a champ. I never thought I would need the old computer but it's great having "Homegroup" set up on a wired network and some extra storage space and a test computer for software and downloading stuff. I do run a 2GB flash drive on "Readyboost".

Out of interest I installed 7077 on an old celeron 1g, 512mb ram and onboard video. The install took nearly an hour but it runs about the same as I remember xp to run on that machine.

8K on a computer -- what sort of rig is that. Seems far too expensive.

I can probably build the finest and fastest PC in the universe for around 2000 USD (Max) -- unless you are also including a PAIR of huge 40 - 60 inch top of the line monitors in the price.

Cheers

Two words. Or rather, two acronyms.
