I have a chance through school to buy Windows 7 pro for $29. I my home desk top I have 2 gigs of ram and plenty of HD space and a 2 gig processor, but not dual core. In my lap top I only have 1 gig of ram, plenty of HD space, and a 1.9 processor.
Microsoft says says I must do a clean install meaning I must move all my programs and folders to another HD and then do a clean install of Win 7. They have a multi-step video tutorial that tells me this may not be just a "walk in the park".
I'm not sure it is worth the trouble to do that. Comments are appreciated.
