Windows 7: Windows 7 on OLD computers

Awesome, I love it .

Unfortunately, my oldest computer is only a little more than 3 years old and is shown in my specs lol. I'm only 22 so I guess that's a factor in the age of computers we have lol. Not that I say you guys are old, but I would love to have such old computers.

I was just saying I would've loved to have had computers before my current one, although my parents had an old computer that had 3.1, I like to just have fun doing things like trying new things on older computers. I had a friend that had a lot of old computers but he moved away.

Anyway nowadays I can't even afford a new processor to replace the damaged one I have.

Keep your eyes open... one of my dinosaurs was rescued from a trash dumpster at an apartment building I helped move a friend into (ugly benefit of owning a truck). Anyway, the only thing wrong was the PC had a nasty virus! Its a 5 year old Dell Dimension 4600, and it rocks with Win7!

I call it T-Wrex!

I'm running Win7 Pro on my 7 year old Dell Precision workstation with dual P4 Xeons (1.5 GHz) and its as smooth as XP ever was on this machine and its running full Aero with no problem using a 9600XT.

I'ts amazing that with dual xeons, your cpu score is the thing pulling your total WEI down!

In all fairness, they are 1st gen P4 Xeons running at 1.5 GHz with only 256KB L2 cache. Someone earlier had posted their scores using a single P4 1.5 Ghz and their CPU score was only in the low 2s

Computers with USB 3 and Windows 7
I notice that several new computers come with USB 3.0 ports and Windows 7 Home Premium installed. It is my understanding the W7 does not support USB 3.0. If so, what advantage does having the USB 3 port on such a computer? Thank you.
