I have a smaller laptop with 2GB running Windows 7 fine. Why do you need more than double what I found to run 7 OK?
I was wanting some suggestions for alternative to this model. Asus has a line of UL (ultra low voltage) laptops that get astounding battery life yet still have great performance. Some models (such as the UL50VT) also have independent graphics cards for even better performance. The only down side, and I mean only, is the limitation of max 4gb memory. I was wondering if there are any laptops out there around this size (13-15) that have good battery life, although I don't necessarily need a ULV processor, and have the ability to go to 8gb memory. I've searched pretty thoroughly but haven't really come up with much yet. Any suggestions would be helpful, and don't suggest Apple. I'm not paying for something that Asus makes better for half the price. THanks.
