    Windows 7 Professional or Enterprise on old hardware

    Just a quick question. What version of windows 7 are people running or planning on running on their networks?

    We have done all our images with Pro but then thought hang on, our license lets us go to Enterprise so we tried it and our oldest machines (2.8Ghz P4 single core with 1Gb ram) will run it but not smoothly, it is so slow.

    Thanks

    Running Pro here and all's well .. ok, most machines are not 2 years old .. but we still have a few 3/4 year old ones dotted about that run it smoothly enough ..

    We've found pro runs fine on Pentium 4 D 2.8ghz with 2gb ram, runs ok with only 1gb ram too but it's a little more clunky then. It works on celeron Ds as well but that's painfully slow
