While I'd get the machine with Windows 7 and get away from XP as fast as possible there will be those that will have old machines to move out or not remember this change the last time it happened. Keep shopping and don't get a machine you have to upgrade.
i am going to buy the Acer 4810T/4810TZ but i cant decide which one to buy in terms of CPU speed.
i have found following laptops:
-Acer 4810tz - Intel Pentium SU2700 - Windows Vista (incl. free Windows 7 upgrade from Acer) - 3GB RAM - 500$
-Acer 4810t - Intel Core 2 Solo - SU3500 - Windows XP - 3GB RAM - 530$
I know that the SU3500 is a little faster and gives a little more battery life but this particular item comes with Windows XP instead of Windows Visa (and Windows 7 upgrade).
I am a student and going to use the laptop for:
- Internet - mainly Firefox, multiple tabs
- MS Office - Word and PowerPoint mainly
- Watching regular movies (no HD)
Important is battery life for me. but also a constant running machine.
What do you guys suggest?
is XP better than Windows 7?
Does it make that much of a difference between SU2700 and SU3500?
Thanks a lot
