Is Win 7 smooth for work with 1.4 G Core Duo, 2GB RAM, 256M Video??

It is my laptop with XP for work. Very smooth with 500MB

RAM available even if Firefox, Acrobat, Word and Matlab

are all open.



I do not pursue fancy visual effects, but do want a smooth

work experience. Could you give me some input if you have

experience with Win 7 on such low-end computers?


Thanks a lot!

As long as you have Aero is can be smooth.
I run Windows 7 on a netbook with a 1.6 GHz Atom processor and 1 GB of RAM.

WMP Video too smooth
It's insane how smooth the video in WMP is. It's like someone went crazy with the texture smoothing filter in photoshop. Is there any way to control the codec rendering options? The "use video smoothing" option doesn't effect it as it's actually for smoothing playback of low bitrate stuttering...
