Windows 7: Starter or Home Premium on 900MHz Celeron

Win7 Enterprise, Win7 x86 (Ult 7600), Win7 x64 Ult 7600, TechNet RTM on AMD x64 (2.8Ghz)
 
 

I would at least use Home premium, when you install it, don't enter the serial Key Code, that whay you can just try it for 30 days to see if it works to your liking

It doesn't matter, both will work the same at the same level of performance. Home Premium does have Aero if the graphics can handle it. You want Aero.

No, you want Aero for it to run "smoothly" it is so important to have it. Aero will free up more CPU cycles then anything else. Aero unlike classic or Basic does not run on the CPU, it runs on the graphics processor (GPU). This is very very important. Offloading as much work as you possibly can from the CPU on such low powered devices is paramount!

Yes, the GMA 950 is enough to run aero, My netbook has the GMA 945 (I think) and runs aero.

Hi guys. Here am I. Installed Win7 Ultimate on my little EeePC. And it runs very good. Everything is working except Aero... I can not find drivers anywhere... My graphic card is Mobile Intel(R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipse.
Any help from you?

You won't get Aero on that. The earliest support was in the 950/945 series.
