Windows 7 Running On An Old Tablet
Seems like a lot of people are having fun putting Windows 7 to the test on netbooks, but Rob over at GottaBeMobile went a step further -- he's got Windows 7 running on a 3 year-old Tablet PC: "Motion Computing’s three year-old LS800 Tablet PC running a 1.2 ghz Intel Pentium M processor, Intel 915GMS chipset, 1 gb of RAM, and a 1.8” 30 gb 4800 RPM hard drive. ... This was a clean Windows 7 install (no upgrade) and the harddrive was freshly formatted. " Check out their video to see how smoothly the OS runs. If the pre-beta Windows 7 continues to prove itself on netbooks and other low memory/CPU machines, Microsoft may succeed in getting people to forget the word "Vista" and to move past XP.
