Unless you need language packs, Bitlocker or initiate Remote Desktop, save money by using the more standard Home Premium - you'll want Anytime Upgrade.

I have run Premium and Ultimate on an old HP notebook on 1 gb RAM with no problem or difference noticed. Actually upgraded it from 512mb which wouldn't run Avast + gadgets without hanging.

However the Atom processor is weak so you may want to hear from others with more familiarity.

Hardware requirements for all win7 editions are the same, so Ultimate will run as fast or as slow as Starter does. Try upgrading RAM to max possible, that'll get you the best possible performance gain for the price.

Unless you disable Aero, there is a difference in performance?

Turning off aero will give you a speed boost if you are low on RAM. But using win7 without aero would be so EEUUU!

Why Ultimate and not HP? Got money to burn?

OT aside: Several 7 screenshots posted lately with Win2000 graphics. What's that about? Crypt-kickers?
