So I have an Acer Aspire netbook with the n270 - A while back, just as win7 came out, I asked if anyone knew if it could run it (Win7).

Has anyone actually done it yet? how is it running? Which version are you running (Home, Pro or ultimate)?

I noticed that the netbooks that say they have "Windows 7" on them are actually running a version called Windows 7 STARTER. Starter has it's limitations - but how do the other versions fair on the netbooks?

*Processor: 1 GHz, 32bit or 64bit
*Memory: 1 GB
*HDD: 16 GB free space
*Video Adaptor: DirectX 9, 128 MB memory (Aero theme)

Do you have everything?
