Windows 7: Want to run Win7 on Dell 700m, what HW changes are needed?

Want to run Win7 on Dell 700m, what HW changes are needed?

I love the size, weight, size of keyboard, etc. of my 700m & would love to continue to use it. Have upgraded the RAM & HD but someone told me the motherboard could not handle win7, is that true? If so, suggestions for new motherboard that I can use? Anything else need to be replaced (graphics card?)? Links to suggested replacement would be greatly appreciated.

Check that link to allow Microsoft to sniff your Dell and let you know.

I think a Dell 700m is a notebook and as far as I know, you don't change motherboards. You get another machine entirely.
