"disappointed"1.5 starson by aventuragrande
Pros: Faster than vista
Cons: connection issues, desk top icon. Not worth the aggravation.
Summary: I guess if i had wore a Hanna Montana back pack and like hung out at the mall windows 7 would be like totally cool and all. Seriously i am not impressed with the useless garbage that windows packaged as 7. So far i still can not connect my wifi and now i research it and there are many others with so many compatibility issues i am thinking of returning this and waiting another few years. I wanted to pin a "show desktop" icon in the quick launch and guess what? You have to make your own patch for something so simple. Why does Microsoft insist on screwing up the few things that worked in the past? I am not so sure about all of the positive reviews for this product. I too think they are written by promoters and not users. I think i will return to vista 32 or XP.ALSO, windows media player 12. what happened here?? Please,,someone who loves this new windows 7 tell me where the "now playing" button went?? If someone can tall me how to remove home groups and libraries from my computer,, I will mail them a check. If not i will pay the restock fee at best buys instead. Also,, my wifi will still not connect to the net. It will some places but not other.

Updated on Oct 25, 2009LAST UPDATE 9 I PROMISE)
Today i returned the unit.
1- windows media player 12 stinks. It constantly searches for files to add and because of my 150 gigs of music it crashes constantly. even the man at best buys was fascinated by this.
2- uninstalling WMP12 and loading WMP11 in not an option from microsoft.
3- Firefox browser(unless it is the latest version) has a 'blip/hiccup" and the screen will jump back and forth by one line.
4- the library feature is in a constant search. I plugged in an exteral drive and now WMP has doubled every file in the library. This feature monitors all the time, maybe it can switched to manual but i can not find it.
I find other issues annoying but that is to each person's individual taste.
SO, unless you find the fancier icons and a little glitter worth the headaches, 7 is a waste of time.
Updated on Aug 11, 2010Finally had to buy a new laptop and windows seven come with it. I guess i have sofened some from my first review and give it 3 stars now. After approx. twenty registry hacks i feel it is usable. I have disabled the mouse over, made a quick launch, removed home groups and many other small changes. Microsoft should make these choices anyway not force people into registry edits.
WMP12 is still a huge mistake and i have not found out how to remove it from a 64 bit system and install WMP11. Instead I partitioned the hard drive and run Vista with WMP11 for music.
Thanks for your submission!
