That really doenst give us much to go on. It will more that likely run - but to be safe, can you tell us what spec your computer is?

on XP - Right click my computer, properties and you will see some basic information about your computer. Post what you find :huh:
Vista - pretty much the same as XP

If you are really computer savvy you could run it on that, provided you could find drivers. If there are windows drivers then there will be Win7 drivers.

However, you are just above the minimum specs called for by Microsoft, if your 6000 has the 1.7 GHz processor that I found to be prevalent when I Googled for your specs. The release candidate calls for a 1GHz P4 or better, 1GB RAM, 16 GB Hard drive, and for graphics, DX9 with 128 MB memory or higher.

I would think it might run a little slow, but who knows? I know a computer tech who has it running on a 1.7 GHz machine that is UNDER- clocked lol.

Yeah i know a guy who runs it on his Samsung NC10 with Atom CPU, so if you can run XP properly it should be ok.

Go to this link at Microsoft and download this beta app and run it. It will analyze your particular machine and give you an idea if your machine is ready for 'Win7 Release Candidate" or what hardware you mat need to install in order for your machine to successfully run win7.

Hope this helps!
