    Running windows 7

    I have an intel d510mo motherboard and will be pairing it with a intel SSD drive, can i safely install windows 7 with this with out suffering serve lag in performance. I have all versions of W7...basic, professional..etc etc.. and 2 GB of ram.... the D510MO is a dual core atom at 1.6GHZ..i have XP now with a normal HD but with an SSD I'd have to use w7 in order to take advantage of TRIM.

    yes, you can safely. the lag you mention depends on what software you have running all at once.

    I run Win7 on all of my setups, including a single core atom.

    I have used home and ultimate.

    See attachment for the guide I follow, don't remember if the login without password procedure is for Home or Pro/Ultimate, it's not the same.

    Yes, the one system I have with an SSD is really responsive, and boots very quickly.

    I wouldn't build a new system without an SSD, at least for the boot/programs drive. Use an HDD to store all your media.

    I think you might want to stick with the Starter version of Win7 (you loose areo, but if you are running on a low end PC that is a good thing).
    The basic version I think is only available in emerging markets (I think).
    You could want to consider Home Premium if you want the media centre component (but if you are running something different, then that is irrelevant).
    Professional and Ultimate add other features you probably don't need (like the ability to join a domain, and run the IIS web server, so there will be more background services running by default).

    These links help decide:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_7_editions
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-au/w...oducts/compare (second tab on this page is good for indervidual features, but it doesn't list starter)
