    If that Samsung N130 netbook came with Windows XP SP3 installed, I doubt if all of its devices will work with Windows 7 and if its hardware(processor, RAM, graphics, etc.) can handle the additional demands of Windows 7.

    The best way to find out is to download and save and then install the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and then run it.

    You also can't upgrade from Windows XP SP3 to Windows 7. You need to do a clean install of Windows 7.

    I recently went from XP to 7 on my 5-year-old Dell Vostro 1000, about as basic a laptop as there is. The upgrade advisor said I could do so, but was limited to the 32 bit version of 7. Fine with me. The process was pretty simple, though upgrading and then installing over 100 Windows updates did take a couple of hours. Your installed programs will not be saved so you'll need to reinstall all of them. You should also go to the Samsung website and see if there are Win 7 drivers for your model. Don't be surprised if there aren't, but the Vista drivers on the upgrade disk worked fine for me.
