Pros: It works as it should.

Cons: Price

Rock stable! Never had a problem with Windows 7 Ultimate.
Considering that anyone serious about gaming must use Windows, Windows 7 Ultimate has performed as advertised and never let me down. People who prefer Linux and write there review based on that preference are missing the point. I wouldn't review an SUV and criticize it for not cornering like my S2000. Each are designed with a different purposes in mind even though both essentially provide transportation. This product is delivering what it supposed to deliver, reliable Windows performance. I am no fan of the price but I can't complain about how the product functions. It just plain works.

Pros: Speed, Ram support, Extremely stable, Easy to use, Runs all games, Less usage than Vista

Cons: Price, Quite big, More usage than XP

Introduction:

Windows 7 Ultimate is the strongest package of Windows 7 you can buy. With the 64bit version you have support for a massive 192GB of System memory, and get all of the great Windows 7 features.

Review:

Compatibility for Windows 7 is very good, and it will run on almost all computers as long as you meet the system requirements. All of the games I own run, but there are a few that don't like The Sims 2. Alot of old games work too, like Age of empires 1, and Return to castle Wolfeinstein. You can use DOSbox to run Very old games like Daggerfall as well.

The stability of this OS is excellent unlike Vista. I have never had a BSOD apart from when I've got an unstable overclock. People say they need to Reformat and re-install every year, this is NOT the case, I just use AVG Cleaner and my PC has been running the same speed as new for almost a year and a half.

Windows 7 runs extremely fast, and doesn't use as many resources as Vista, but a little more than XP unfortunately.

Conclusion:

All in all this is one of the best Windows 7 versions there are, it runs games, programs and more while maintaining speed and Integrity. However, It just can't justify the price.

Pros: It plays games and runs on my computer (most of the time)

Cons: The famous BSOD, among other instabilities and minor annoyances

The only reason I have this on my computer is binary compatibility. If I could run all of my games under Linux, this I wouldn't own a copy of Windows.

Pros: BitLocker Ready

Cons: Not worth the price considering previous versions available

It is Windows Ultimate. There's nothing higher.
The best of the best.

My opinion: I use Windows ultimate solely because of the name and to take advantage of BitLocker security.


I give it only 2 flames because having Bitlocker doesn't justify the extra cost.
