Windows 7: Best "Build" Curious (oem computers vs custom)

16 Apr 2009   #11

El Capitan / Windows 10
 
 

Self built MPC/Media Server (see specs) and bargain basement $180 eeePC 900a both with 7077. I routinely trial new builds in a sandbox environment and have my own rapid migration scripts to bring validated builds in from the sandbox to the production machines. I've developed a five minute install method (at least on the MPC) and scripts deploy my profile and applications manifest to a new build in 15-20 more.

So far 7077 has been far and away best on both the MPC and the netbook.

7077 working perfectly & best so far on my system. Laptop, see specs & no drag at all. Only difference from when bought is an extra 512 RAM.

Wow, Gateway is still making computers?

That isn't a joke or sarcasm....I thought Gateway had gone the way of eMachines. Were they bought out by HP or Dell or something?

Edit: Huh, apparently eMachines is still making machines too...I can't believe I haven't heard anything about this.

68/77 have been the best builds so far for me. My comp is part oem part self build and these builds have give me very little if any problems.

Gateway bought eMachines and then Acer bought Gateway and Packard Bell as well. Due to purchasing those companies Acer is now the third largest computer manufacturer in the world (by sales) after HP and Dell.
