Throw on a copy of Windows 7 ulti x64 RTM! Don't see any reason why it won't run well.

you should be able to run the 64bit version with your cpu - maybe you should try a dual-boot option first to make sure...check dell to see if there are 64bit drivers for your hardware.

check this tutorial on how to setup dual-boot.

Leave about us. It will definitely run well. Tell us what do you think? Did windows 7 run well on your laptop? If yes, i will strongly recommend you to get 64bit. That's the future.

depends on the version of Vista home installed. x86 or x64
Id'd upgrade to the same version pre-installed.

i would recommend a clean install - not an upgrade from one os to another! especially as it's a new machine that probably doesn't have a lot of software to reinstall.

Basically guys, the CLEAN in much faster. I agree, but his is NEW. so in that case I'd recommend -UPGRADE- REASON: he will have use of the FREE programs that come with the NEW computer. If he owns AV and FW and all the other stuff. and can install from Retail or OEM disk. great.

But remember many x86 programs do install on x64 systems.

I always do clean installs. To me, computers from manufacturers come bloated with useless software.
