What do you need?

If you don't need it, don't buy it. Windows 7 in my view is ready today. Yes there are 2 programs that don't work here but compared to what happened with Vista that's no biggy.

Back to your purchase decision. If you can wait then you wait.

If you are always waiting for the next thing to come out before you buy, you will be waiting forever. Computers that were out a year or two ago run great with Windows 7, chances are the ones out today will too Wink

Can't load W7 to my Toshiba Satellite A105-S4384 laptop

Bought Windows update for my Toshiba Satellite A105-S4384 laptop.
Still love my nearly 2-year-old laptop, but it will not accept the upgrade to W7.

I really want to be able to run the new OS and not Vista. Any ideas?
