Excerpt: vista64 was no longer performing and I knew it was time to rebuild or buy new. New was not an option and reinstalling vista was not an option. 7 is already better than the old Vista on this 6-8 year old PC.
Summary: I purchased this refurbished laptop with a little hesitation. There are so many negative reviews posted about other sellers like Walmart that it seemed like a big risk. What I received was a clean, well cared for laptop with one set of scratches near the track pad (looks like dog claw marks).
Excerpt: The upgrade from XP on my Dell Latitude laptop, required a memory and BIOS upgrade to permit the use of Windows 7. After that, the install was straightforward and hassle free. The result is a clean platform to reinstall essential software, and squeeze more life out of my hardware.
Summary: I ordered this operating system to replace XP since Microsoft has decided not to support XP any longer. I was concerned that the OEM version might not install without the OEM installation software, but it installed just fine.
Summary: No choice, needed to upgrade a computer. So bye bye XP :-( I pick Window 7 instead of Window 8, because my PC will probably die before Window 7 end of life in 2020 and I am more used with Window 7. Very easy to install
Summary: Overall, I'm impressed with Windows 7. It seems very solid, is nice to look at, and does everything I need it to. I'm glad it's still available despite Windows 8 being the new de facto standard.
Pros: Looks good, seems very stable, is not Windows 8.
Cons: Difficult to install via USB, especially if the only other Windows OS you have is XP or older.
Summary: It's Windows pro.. If you're looking to buy it, you probably pretty much know exactly what to expect. I like it cause it's better than stupid Windows 8, and it's compatible with pretty much every game on the market.
