I think Win7 uses less resources than Vista. it was the first time they de-bloated their OS = an
attempt to fit it onto mobile devices such as tablets (ok, not very mobile but more mobile than
desktops). So upgrading from Vista to Win7 might well be a good idea without worrying about
"Just play a few games"! It's games that typically push the limits of computers and push people
into upgrading hardware.

I will say though... I consider 1GB to be the *bare minumum* on an XP

For XP, I always recommend 2GB, and for 7 (won't touch Vista), minimum
The system came with 512 from the factory. All the systems I dealt with
that had XP from the factory has 512 for ram.
Irrelevant to my point. The fact is, XP is simply a total DOG with less than 1GB RAM, and is much
better with 2GB.
I do not have Win7, but would like to replace my Vista laptop with
Just be sure to get 64bit with at *least* 4GB, but much better would be 8G.
Sorry, but my Vista laptop maxed out at 3 GB, so I will need to install Win7 with 3 GB. It was not
made for Win7 but almost anything is better than Vista. I doubt that I will be able to get it to
have more memory than the 3 GB installed, but I will look into it.
I want to get that system upgraded in the near future so I can deal with the Win7 people and their
LO needs. It is getting to be a problem not having a Win7 system for supporting people. I prefer
Ubuntu, but most of my friends use Win7 now. Only one uses Linux.
I really want to keep supporting LO under Windows, so as people buy new systems with Win7, I am loosing ground
with them. One girl bought a very powerful 17" laptop, just to type notes, play videos, and browse the Net.
She spent three times as much as needed for doing just that type of "work". I would love such a laptop,
but I cannot afford one like that. At least she is using LO now and not get convinced that she had to have MSO.
