Re: Windoze XP
"Later netbooks came with 7"
I upgraded mine from XP to 7 straight out of the box, and while 7 natively supported the 1024x600 display, some programs spawned taller dialogue boxes, so you lose the buttons at the bottom.
One minor registry change, and you can easly choose 1024x768, or, 1152x864. It won't look pretty, but it'll work.
So, since it's working just bloody fine right now thank you very much, why the pain of upgrading?
