So, after seeing a countless amount of positive reviews, playing around with it a bit on a friend’s PC or at the store, perhaps trying out the Beta and RC, and simply hearing your geek friends talking amongst each other about 7, you finally decided to make the switch. Whether you’re upgrading a current system, or purchasing a new PC, there are a few things you can do to spruce up your experience and make it even better.
I use a Mac Pro as my desktop, but I have a small Sony laptop that I'd like to upgrade from XP to Windows 7, so I've been doing a ton of research. This list is a great place to start after installing Windows 7, so if you've already upgraded, or you plan to do so soon, make sure you bookmark this list, and spend some time making use of it.
