My brother has a laptop and it's originally Windows Vista, it's not running good and he wants to change the Windows and everything.


1GB of Ram.
150GB Hardisk.
Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T7300 @ 2.00 GHZ.
Graphic Card Nvidia GForce 8400 MGS.


So, should he go back to XP or move forward to 7 with this Laptop ?

I would go for XP because 1 GB of Ram is borderline.

I would strongly advice him to try Windows 7. It's a much better programmed version of Vista and speed is same as XP but at the same time u don't use outdated at 10 years OS, but stay in the future with modern OS where DX , internet explorer and many other feature's works like a charm.

Run the Windows 7 Advisor tool before trying out Windows 7 and seeing how it works. It should run on that hardware (I've put Win 7 on netbooks and it's no fast machine, but it's workable). I'd try Windows 7 first and benchmark it and if it doesn't meet up to standards, then just run Windows XP on it.

To run any version of 7 decently you need 2GB RAM.

Stick to XP.

Hopefully its a x64 version of Windows 7 or he will have wasted RAM.
