Hi -
Your new computer may come with an earlier version of Java installed already -
Then all you would do is update it to the latest version - - and done -

If Java is not installed, it is a very painless 3 to 5 min process -

Thank You -

You are talking apples and oranges :).

Software which ran well on an earlier processor...will work fine on a more current processor. A change of processor does not make software obsolete or outdated.

Java...and Windows...and varous programs...are updated periodically to assure system security from known malware vulnerabilities. These have nothing to do with hardware changes which may take place.

Software compatibility with Windows 7 is a program-by-program consideration, with most programs running on XP exhibiting no problem running on Win 7.
