Depends on what you have and what you are moving to.

Generally, I would reinstall the OS just to be sure (and anyways, a reinstall is good for you every now and then). However I have upgraded components like the motherboard chipset, CPU and RAM without NEEDING to reinstall the OS.

Still, I'd backup my data and plan on reinstalling fresh.

I recommended a netbook to my father that has a low spec requirement for automotive software (plugged into the car computers). He got a wireless adapter and it works like a charm and is small enough to carry around, doesn't need a lot of hard drive space, cpu power or anything like that.

I think he paid $300.

Either way, you can get a machine to meet those specs for very cheap pre built.
