If it came with Vista initially, likely it will work with win-7. The Dell D-505 can handle max of 2gig RAM and win-7 will apparently run on 1Gig; 2Gig making some difference of course in overall performance. However the Dell specs say it came with XP-Pro initially?

Two issues which might impinge: is processor up win-7 requirements; and are all the drivers required for win-7 available on the Dell site?

Also read this from the Dell community site; it may help you decide...?

Also bear in mind that support for win-7 starts to tail off next year... I'd be more inclined to run a version of Linux on it. Which version - best leave that to the Linux gurus here as my input in that regard will be rather vague and with not much experience with Linux.
