We installed Windows 7 on a 3 year old laptop we purchased from [advertizing link removed by mod] and it appears to run much faster than XP. Could this be the computer, or is it windows performing better?

Both. Windows 7 runs smoother and has better memory management. It also could be that your XP was on their for awhile and now you installed a fresh OS. You would still notice a difference if you just reinstalled XP.

Keep 7 on it though. :)

But you will notice that after a while 7 will start slowing down too, as all OS's will when they are on your PC for a while. One way to try and keep it semi speedy is to type MSCONFIG in your search bar and click on the startup tab and disable and files you don't need loading into memory on startup.

That largely depends on your hardware. Any chance we can get your system specs so we know what hardware we are dealing with?

C'mon.

This whole thread is an obvious shill for the advertising link that was removed.

Win7 won't run faster/smoother on hardware that was intended for XP. Win7 is a major resource hog. Needs a lot more horsepower than XP needed in order to run at all.
