I have an HP p6130f that works perfectley with Windows Vista 64-Bit. Should I upgrade to Windows 7?

If so, I could do an onboard pc install or I could go fresh with the disc?

Thanks all,

Connor

If you're happy with it as is, you may not need to upgrade. Take a look at the new features offered in 7 and decide for yourself.

If you do decide to move to 7, you are better off backing up your data and doing a fresh install, rather than an in-place upgrade.

I agree. If your current system is working well for you, and if you're not aware of some Windows 7 feature that would make life somehow better for you, there really isn't any point in going through the cost and hassle of upgrading IMHO.

But if you were building a new system, it would make a lot of sense to go with Windows 7.

Win7 is quicker and more efficient than Vista. Whether you get a ROI with your purchase is up to you I suppose. :sarcastic:

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Keep backups and when it goes gaga, then do a clean W7 install.
