Its a 6-7 year old HP laptop with a 2 ghz intel core duo and poopy integrated graphics. It runs alright on Vista which it has installed but I would like to switch to windows 7. Would that have any impact on performance or should it run about the same? I just need it for word processing and occasional web browsing, not trying to game or anything.

It should run better on 7 and even better on 8.

Should be fine as long as it's got 2GB of RAM, minimum.

What model is it? Drivers can sometimes be an issue
