\015 Hello i like to upgrade this laptop to where i can install windows 7, so i has now AMD turion 64 mobile tech MK-361.99Ghz 448MB of ram what kind of parts i need to do this upgrade and is gonna be ok to do that? or is better get a new one, is gonna be cheeaper? what do you recommend to me? thx!\015

Answers :

Ok ...first see that you need at least 1G of Ram on a computer for successful installation of windows7...
also need 13G of storage available on a partition of your Hdd...
the windows seven can be downloaded from the Microsoft site ...or bought from an software store...
I understood that until July it was distributed for free as a release and with a free license until Mars 2010 ...but they do not do that anymore ...
anyway it worth trying ...
I understood also that some had problems in buying it from the site and downloading it ...so I recommend to wait until next Mars when it will be a fully functional program ...and until than just prepare your laptop by upgrading Ram memory ...
anyway ...like vista it has issues with driver compatibility ...even if most are the same as in Vista ...some devises do not have drivers available for it ...and you will not be able to use them..
