Hey everyone, I'm fixing my friends laptop and for some reason windows has gone haywire. Its a sony laptop so I could use the recovery partition and recover vista. The other option would be to go the campus computer store and buy a copy of windows 7 for $20. My reason for consider buying windows 7 is that is may provide a boost in the battery and most importantly, I think the laptop will run alot smoother with windows 7.

So should I get my friend to buy windows 7 or should I just recover vista?

For $20 Windows 7 is the way to go! However...first make sure you can get all the special drivers for that laptop, especially if you get the 64 bit version of Windows 7.
