    I have a HP Mini 210 with 2 gb of RAM and Atom 450, installed W7 Ultimate, no problems, run well.
    With an Atom 270....I don't know....maybe W7 Home Premium it's better for it.

    i have a compaq mini 702ea n270 atom 2gb ram runs windows 7 professional flawlessly :)

    I dont know why they load windows xp on netbooks!! netbooks run much better with windows 7 installed on them in my opinion!

    How fast is your processor clocked? 1.60 GHz? If so I would not install Ultimate as it requires more then the other ones but rather either Home Premium or Pro dude. That is my suggestion.

    As I've said before, All editions are same performance and take same amounts of resources. You can disable aero and so on in Ultimate and tweak the services to make it faster

    My computer is a Acer Revo R3610 with the ION Atom 330 in it, and it runs Ultimate just fine with No slow downs.

    I am using Home Premium at the moment. I had W7 Starter pre-installed. There is no 3 program limit on Starter...

    I got OEM SLP key for Home Premium from here:

    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/10370-Windows-7-OEM-SLP-Key-Collection

    I used Windows Anytime Upgrade feature and entered the key, few minutes and all done. :) Thanks to all forum ppl. Maybe I'll update to Ultimate soon...

    Intel Atom N270 1.60GHz and 2 GB RAM.

    I originally went with Starter on mine since that is what current netbooks come with. Eventually changed to Home Basic so I could at least change the desktop without having to use that hack to do it lol.

    Are you sure dude? If that is the case then how come windows vista ultimate required more resources for the same arcitechture compared to vista home premium? Aren't they about the same from vista to 7 when it comes to that. You are right though about the services.

    The requirements for all versions of Windows 7 are the same.

    Home premium and higher have Aero available, which may load down the machine a bit. Personally I tweaked Aero (removed transparencies, removed minimize/maximize animations), and I don't find it loads down the machine that much.

    Other than Aero, I can't think of any features in Ultimate that would slow down the machine. Particularly because you can tweak each feature or service independently.

    The same architecture?
    What?
    The system requirements are the same.
    Architecture is just the type of processor involved... (AMD64, X86, IA64...)

    I think he simply meant that a x86 Vista Utimate needed more resources than a x86 Vista HP.

    (As in not counting the 64 bitters, which would of course need more in any case.)

    what I am trying to say is I remember that a x86 copy of vista ultimate has more strict and intense system requirements then a x86 copy of vista HP. Phazor you are right lol. This could be different with win7 though, I really do not know. I was more or less just curious lol
