Windows 7: is this a good upgrade

13 Sep 2012   #11

Windows 7 Pro x64

I wouldn't spend 1 cent on that system. Find a used core 2 duo system on craigslist for ~200 or less and it will be night and day. I didn't know windows 7 would run on a 2.0 Ghz Celeron chip.

Just for fun I'd love to see the WEI on that system.

I managed Win 7 starter on a P4 2.66 with 2Gb of ram, I thought that was a feat.
