Windows 7 vs. Windows XP

Many PC manufacturers, including netbook makers, are alms a free upgrades and advancement agenda for Microsoft's Windows 7 and it's time we activate out how Windows 7 will accomplish on one of the a lot of accepted netbooks currently on the market! Using the absolution candidate, we installed Windows 7 on the Dell netbook and ran all the benchmarks we run in our abounding reviews in adjustment to get a abounding consequence on how Windows 7 endless up against Microsoft Windows XP on a netbook. Many in the association active netbooks are absolutely acquisitive Windows 7 holds its own on a netbook because, let's face it, 2002's Windows XP on any 2009 arrangement just seems backwards.

Armed with a 4 GB accelerated USB flash drive and step-by-step instructions by Kurt Shintaku, we were calmly able to install Windows 7 on the netbook.
