Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate, i7-930/4GB
Hi, can anyone tell me if it's alright to use a Windows OS even though your old laptop doesn't meet all the min. requirements listed? what will happen?
Like running an Ultimate version when you only have 1 GB of RAM...

Well if it does install, it won't run nearly as well as if it had more ram or cpu speed...whatever.......xp runs good on 1 gig of ram, vista and windows 7 do Not. If you switch from vista home premium to vista ultimate, it may not be as big an issue. Things will always run better when you exceed what they ask for, so when you install on the bare bones....don't expect great performance with games etc.
