Windows When we reviewed the Windows 7 beta, we did so on a standard desktop machine. However, the big thing in hardware right now is not the desktop, but the netbook segment.

Your aspire has 1.5GB ram and the stock model with windows XP has 1GB available...
The size of HD doesn't matter that much if you already took one of 30GB.
