does it actually make something like a laptop run more efficiently then it would on vista? i was told it didnt, but my i find some evidence to the contrary as well.

Both are resource heavy...Compared to XP....At the moment XP seems to be a good choice for medium or lov level laptops

I use windows 7 and I must say I LOVE IT! I was advised not to go with window 7 however I am glad I did.

On top of that, there will never be new upgrades for XP. Windows 7 on the other hand will be receiving updates.

I definitely think it is worth the upgrade, especially since Microsoft's support of XP is ending soon (if that kind of thing matters to you). I love the new taskbar as well. Just having icons is so much better than all of that text filling up the taskbar.

windows 7 is everything good in xp plus the things that didn't totally suck in vista. i was a hardcore xp fan but i recently upgraded and have no regrets.

i for one like windows 7 its really easy to do stuff with i like how you can drag a window to the right of left side and it will half screen the window so you can side by side 2 windows and compare stuff also when you drop a window to the top of the screen it full screens it also the search function is a million times faster than windows XP i dont remember how fast vista's was but i hated vista with a passion windows 7 is vista but without the slowness i totally recommend it

yeah, I really don't like W7. it's supposed to be a whole lot better than any of the previous Microsoft OSs but it really isn't. it doesn't have anything useful that wasn't in XP.

It is much more stable than Vista and just plain better than XP so you have to do it.

I don't find Win 7 as great as some folks do, more like a Vista service pack, some nice tweaks and a few nice extras.Hard to suggest paying customers on vista should bother.Windows vista has good graphics but windows 7 has better technology and better security software.All you will have to do is boot to your desktop,insert the Win7 Disk and upgrade. It will take a few hours to complete the process but that is all you do.
