I've just bought a netbook with windows xp home edition for $229 at London Drugs..i have 14 days from purchase date (Friday Dec 10)to change my mind and return it for a windows 7 starter edition netbook (there's only one left on the shelf at the sale price of $279). The difference in cost is about $50 plus tax, but what's more important is...will the starter edition be better than xp home? I have a pc laptop already that i will be networking my new netbook with. My current pc laptop is already running xp home. If i go to the store and exchange my netbook for the windows 7 starter edition, will i still be able to network to my current xp home laptop? On the microsoft site, there's very little information on window 7 starter edition. Does this edition really have some better features over xp home? Will it be worth it? I will also be networking a new mac that's arriving in a couple of weeks, will i be able to network a mac with my pc's?:-s Both of these netbooks have just 1GB of RAM. Please help.. is xp home better or w7starter better? I realize there are differences, like no dvd playback and cant change the desktop to customize it to my own picts and colors, but is that all? There's no dvd drive on the netbook anyways, so that's not an issue to me, and i don't care if i have a fancy or boring picture on my desktop. What i want to know is, is w7 starter a better OS, and why?
