haha that spec is better than the desktop i'm running it on! - and i'm not even trying to do a dinosaur challenge haha
so is it impossible to install it under 512mb of ram? - as in it doesn't let you go through with the installation?

This looks promising.

Im planning on installing W7 on a Latitude X300 with a 1.4Ghz Pentium M and 1.5GB of RAM.


EDIT:
No luck. BSOD when I tried to install. It said the computer/bios wasnt fully ACPI compatible.
Im a really Thinkpad guy, but I got this Dell for free. Thats about what its worth anyway.

How well does Windows 7 work on computers with just 512 MB? Is the speed still ok or is it really slow?

Depends on how patient or unpatient you are!
But I've tried it on really lame computers @ the PC store, those around 150$, gotta tell you It's like XP, only a second slower, (maybe because the GPU was awful)...
