Running Windows 7 Beta on Lenovo IdeaPad S10
After running Windows 7 beta on my Lenovo IdeaPad S10 for almost a week, I am very pleased with the performance.
As shown, the Windows Experience Index in Windows 7 varies from Windows Experience Index in Windows Vista. The maximum score has been bumped up from 5.9 to 7.9. Upgrading to 2GB of RAM will only change the score from 4.4 to 4.5.
The supported security providers for Windows 7 are AVG, Kaspersky and Norton. Kaspersky and Norton are still beta products and Kaspersky is not compatible with PC Tools Firewall Plus. The current release AVG Anti-Virus free edition 8.0.176 runs well.
