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 ?

Windows 7 will turn that system into a snail if you try installing it. So I vote for XP!

What if he improved the RAM ?

That might do it! Make sure its well over 2GB if he wants to play games on it.

Then I guess 2GB shall suffice.

Well its upto his preference. IMO, 32-bit fulfills all my computing necessities so I don't feel any need for 64-bit.

So I guess, you should go with 32-bit. Also I had an 8400 card earlier - So its better that you go with 32.
