Can't wait to discard this...

Before the end of this month I will finally be getting the new Windows 7 operating system and I will be trashing this 2007 Windows Vista machine. Who else agrees that 7 is so much better?

Welcome onboard !

We all agreed on that long time ago. You are right. :)

It's certainly an improvement.

Vista was the biggest waste of 120$. It didn't finally start to become stable until right before I got this win7 laptop. Every 3 - 5 months I had to reload Vista (it taught me to make regular backups). I only keep my old machine around because it's the first real nice case mod I did. Eventually I'll gut it and upgrade the mobo/cpu and the godawful os.

It was still better than XP when there was no Windows 7, in my honest opinion. Hardware just wasn't up to par at the time and it was writing to disk a lot. After SP1, it is still slower than 7, but not as bad as some would suggest..
