Just joined today so wanted to say hello to everyone..
I got a Dell mini 10 netbook for my birthday. (i think its the older one with HDMI, 160gb HD, 1GB Ram) not sure how spec varies???
It was a gift from my parents. They bought it off ebay i think it was supose to be new but when turning it on etc.. it already had a user registered for windows etc..
(not sure what status windows should be in from new out of the box) anyone advise??
anyway for a ease of mind i completly formatted the HDD and reinstalled XP home edition (just incase there was any nasty keyloggers or software hidden).
However i am considering one of the following options and just want to get some advise before proceeding. AS the pc is new and i have no software to loose i was consdering Upgrading the operating system to either
XP pro edition
or Win 7 ultimate.
i think XP pro will run fine in terms of sys requirement however what about 7? i just looked on microsoft and in terms of hardware the dell seems to be upto the job in terms of procesor and ram but i wasnt sure about the Support for DirectX 9 graphics and 32 MB of graphics memory
can anyone tell me if they have installed win7 ultimate and how it runs? sluggish ? fine?
