I've got a Dell inspiron E1505 running windows XP but all my other PC's in my house run Windows 7, I ran the Windows 7 compatibility program and everything seems to check out fine if I wanted to upgrade, but I'm not sure I wanna spend 100 bucks on the upgrade. So would it be worthwhile to upgrade this laptop to Win 7?

If the computer runs good with XP i would not upgrade it,but you will have to decide if the value of the upgrade is worth it.You might need this to run some older programs that won't run on 7.
I don't know what your purchasing schedule is for new laptops, but I'd hold off until you get a new laptop that comes with win 7 on it.
If you want something that has more features than XP and uses similar resources and you want it for free,why not try installing ubuntu or some other *buntu linux distribution?That's what I'm using in my old laptop too.
i prefer not to upgrade .....i just stick to win xp...
