I found a new HP Probook 4540s i3 for a decent price - upped the RAM to 16 gig and haven't looked back. Think it was a good decision.
I also gave the Vostro 1400 to my 7-year old grandson. He loves it... "Papa, I've got my VERY OWN computer!" Got a few extra hugs and kisses from that decision.
Thanks everyone for your help. If I had had some extra time, I would have liked to tried it. But, the world called and I had to answer for my limited part.
Hope everyone has had a GREAT summer... now, back to teaching.
I have a Vostro 1400 with a Core 2 Duo T5470 processor - 3 gb RAM. It's running XP Pro.
I ran the Windows 7 upgrade analyzer, and it said it would run 7. However, the Dell site doesn't list it as being 7 compatible. Who do I believe?
Will I be able able to put 7 Professional on this machine? Has anyone else upgraded this computer to 7?
I just think it's time to upgrade to the newer system.
Thanks for your answers.
