Ok, So my dad has a very old laptop which he never uses. But it would be easier for my mom to do banking on it in the house. It has a very old pentium 3 and 128mb ram. Lol i know since i have a i7. But would it be faster if i put windows 7 on it instead of XP Pro? Just wanted to know since i gotta key and RC downloaded. Isnt 7 suppose to be faster for netbooks and stuff. And dont tell me to by a new laptop!
This isn't true...I have an old 1.4 Ghz Celeron (circa 2002) laptop with 512Mb RAM (an old one too weak to run on our corporate (school) network, but I use it as a browser. Installed Windows 7 on the machine tonight (+ Norton Internet Security 2010) and it boots in under a minute to the desktop. IE is much more swift and responsive. Not anywhere near as good as my Core 2 Quad machine in the study, but beggars can't be choosers! Settles on 390Mb RAM use. XP driver for my wireless slot-in card worked fine!
