Windows 7 on a Netbook

August 2, 2009 at 2:16 pm Leave a comment

The latest operating system coming from Microsoft which is Windows 7 would soon be available to us.  The planned release date will be on October 22,2009. Before the official version gets released we  tested the beta version of Windows 7,  which is available free for download at the Microsoft site,  on a netbook.

The netbook we used was an MSI Wind U100 with tha basic specifications.

Processor: Intel Atom 1.6 Ghz

Memory: 1 GHz

HDD:  160 GB 5600rpm

The whole installation process took around 30 minutes, pretty impressive. Boot time took just under a minute. Considering that this isn’t the final version yet it really does run well on a netbook. Navigating through different settings of Windows 7 was easy and when we installed a couple of our favorite programs from our XP system they worked perfectly as well.

More detailed review once the final version is released.
