Can it stream flash videos? Nope?, so it doesn't accomplish what my playbook accomplishes?


Don't know about others but my iPhone streams flash.

I know Vista is garbage but how is Windows 7 garbage? Are you ranting just for the sake of ranting or what?


Yeah I don't know how anyone can take issue with 7...I've installed it on numerous computers and it has worked flawlessly. Speedy, stable, looks nice...what's the problem?

No. I don't think that should effect it at all.

By the way, is the download working for you? I thought it was unlocked at 12pm Pacific.


It seemed to be, but when I got to the actual part of downloading it I backed out. I had to reinstall everything a while back from the discs that came with my computer. Ever since I've had issues with windows 7 updating. Getting message of "updates failed to install, reverting changes" or something close to that.

Little nervous about spending the money and then not having the upgrade work

Still miles and miles behind Mountain Lion in its intuitiveness.

I absolutely hate it, not only does it look like a smart phone, its confusing as hell to use.

Why fix something that isnt broken? they could have just improved Windows 7 and fix some issues but instead they decide to change the whole look of Windows...

AH. It will warn you before you install for certain things like iTunes authorizations and such. I upgraded without a hitch. Will probably go out tomorrow and look for a new laptop too.

SO far it's been great. Booting under ~10seconds with an HDD
