HP netbooks likely to run three Windows 7 versions

Posted on Friday, February 13 2009 @ 05:05:46 CET by


HP announced future versions of its Mini netbooks will likely run at least three different versions of Windows 7:
That includes the Professional and Home Premium editions, which Microsoft Corp. last week said will be the two primary versions of Windows 7 , and the low-end Starter edition, which will limit users to running three applications at a time.

Kyle Thornton, category manager for business notebook PCs at HP, said in an interview late last week that the vendor also has been testing the beta version of Windows 7 Ultimate - an edition aimed at gamers and PC enthusiasts - on the Mini netbook line.

Windows 7 is being built on the same code base as Windows Vista , prompting some fears that the new operating system may prove to be too bulky to run well on modestly powered netbooks. But despite such concerns, "we see it running very well on the [Minis], even with Aero turned on," Thornton said, referring to the compute-intensive graphical user interface offered in both Vista and Windows 7.
