This is not the compatibilty center, its the upgrade advisor. It will give you a flat yes or no and the reasons why
Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows

My guess is no.

Taytay,

Follow Richc's advice.

Click on the link he provided.

Run the upgrade advisor.

I also suspect that the answer will be no.

does not sound promising.

You will be plagued with problems and poor performance.

I do not suggest installing Win 7 on that computer.

A good place for another opinion would be the Lenovo site and the Lenovo forum.

I wouldn't put Windows 7 on a computer that's nearly ten years old.

As MacGyvr hints, XP SP3 would be fine.
