The t1400 is a single core not a dual core.

Linux is NOT a supported OS at my work nor will it ever be. Please read the OP before posting.

Read and understood but felt it couldn't hurt to let people know to experience life instead of look at it throw windows.

PS: I wonder how your servers work if Linux isn't supported.

What? Why the comment about servers? You can run an entire corporation on Microsoft-only servers... what's your point?

P.S. What does "look at it throw windows" mean?

Specs:

1.83ghz intel T1400 Core Solo CPU
2 GB of DDR2 Ram
160GB 5300RPM hdd's

What do you guys think? Will they run like crap with windows 7 on them?


These are for a business and going to be on a domain so please don't recommend linux

My choices are XP Pro or Windows 7

I would go with Windows XP, actually. But at the same time, you need to verify Windows 7 driver support for other components of the laptop system.

I have a Dell Precision M70 laptop with a Pentium-M 2.13GHz, 2GB DDR2, 160GB WD Blue, and nVidia Quadro FX1400Go. There are no up-to-date NVidia drivers for my graphics card, which sucks. So I'm stuck with Windows XP.

Also, you can breathe new life into those laptops if they're SATA instead of PATA... 'cause the slowest component of any standard system is still the hard-drive. Swap out the HDD for a SSD, even a small one, and the impact of swapping (if it happens) is greatly reduced...

id toss windows thin pc on it when its finally finished its a nice version of windows 7 just take the aero off and your good windows thin pc is for business anyways.

Hell i have thin pc running on a 10 yr old laptop single core celeron with only 512mb of ram and the sucker really flys.

a rc just came out for thin pc so if you can wait i scoop that up if not just put 7 starter on it and use the classic appearance.

edit: oh i also forgot to say if your just want to use for emails and web why not just try installing splash os its similar to the chrome os
