We have been testing Windows 7 on 2 notebooks, one a single core processor, and the other a Celeron processor, both with 2GB RAM.

The Minwin features of the new OS means it loads quicker, uses less resources and runs flawlessly on these systems. One is being used for all the usual office work, emails, web surfing etc., while the other is getting a real bashing with a bunch of games that we can run with onboard graphics.

The speed of Win7 on these otherwise low spec’d laptops is impressive and a welcome change. I suspect this new OS will change the way we buy laptops or Netbooks because we can look at less than top of the performance range to get decent performance for day to day tasks.
