You will have to purchase a copy of win7 then install it. I would go with an OEM copy and save some money.

go to dell's site and make sure they have drivers for win 7 and your laptop too. im sure it will run win 7 fine but if there are no compatible win 7 drivers for you hardware you might end up with some components on you laptop that will not work properly.

**note: some vista drivers can make components work in 7 if proper drivers are not available.

1) Why do you want to change from XP to windows 7?
What do you wish to accomplish?

2) If your hard drive space requirements are small enough, consider first replacing your hard drive with a SSD. It will absolutely transform the performance of your PC.

3) Be prepared to lose the hidden xp restore area on your hard drive. Not a big deal, I think.
