I love Windows7. All of the computers at my home are running it, and they all are working perfectly. My school has Windows7, and it works perfectly there too.
However, there's just two computers that I have that don't have 7 on. One is a computer that the entire family uses, has 4 user accounts, tons of files, settings, etc. That computer is fairly decent for being 4 to 5 years old. Its got 1.25GB RAM, 80GB HDD, Nvidia graphics, Intel Pentium 4. I attempted 7 on that with no luck, unfortunately, it ran terribly, and that computer is sticking with XP.
The other computer is slightly weaker, and is my personal machine that I use as a secondary/backup computer. Its a Dell Optiplex GX270, with an Intel Pentium 4, 512MB RAM, 80GB HDD, integrated graphics. Its currently got XP SP3 on it and is working great but I'm starting to not enjoy XP anymore. Its just so boring if you know what I mean
So I was just wondering.....how do you guys think the Dell would work with Windows7? If I don't install too many programs and store as much as I can on my external hard drive? Would it work, or should I just stick with boring old XP? Which edition/Office edition should be installed?
Thanks so much for the help
