The only issue I have run into are with programs that are not optimized for Windows 7 ( Such as Skype ) but, the latest batch of Win Updates have cleared that up and I expect that to continue over the next few months.
See the screenshot gallery and details after the jump…
Intel Atom CPU N270 @ 1.6GHZ and 1GB of ram
Runs fast and stable. Much quicker then XP in general OS use.
Here is a list of programs I use regularly: WMP 12, Word 2007, Excel 2007, Fireworks CS4, IE8, Chrome 2, Filezilla, and Skype
I did disable some of the visual effects to conserve batter life. (Check the screenshot gallery)
It is a little bit less but almost negligible. With my 3-Cell batter I average 2.5-3.5 hours of use and double that with my 6-Cell.
I am very happy with Windows 7 on this machine and will not go back to XP. If you have a net book… I would recommend switching to Windows 7. I have been running smoothly on 1GB of ram for a few weeks and I do not really see a benefit in sticking with XP.
