With the release of Windows 7, Microsoft has seen something of a resurgence in its standing, delivering on promises that past versions of their operating system has failed to fulfill. ?Microsoft offers users the opportunity to download an .ISO image of Windows 7. This is convenient if you have a netbook to which you?d like to install the program.
If you?re looking for a quick and painless way of simply taking that .ISO image and installing it with a thumb drive, which is particularly useful if you want to use Windows 7 with a netbook, the following tool will allow you to do so.
Called the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool , this utility creates a bootable flash drive ? or, if you so choose, a DVD –from the .ISO image, taking just a few steps to have a quick solution for whenever you wish to install Windows 7. For those using a flash drive, you?ll require one with a capacity that?s equal to or greater than 4GB.
This is a quick solution for installing Windows 7 on your netbook, but it?ll also prove helpful if you?re someone who opted to download Windows 7 from Microsoft rather than order the installation DVD.

Budget-priced netbooks are all the rave. Offering much of the same functionality that your? standard laptop delivers, at a significantly less expense to your bank account, netbooks are compact mini-laptops that provide the convenient portability many of us demand in? these rapidly moving times.
While they?re stripped of certain amenities we find in the typical laptop ? a DVD drive, for example ? they?re wifi-enabled and perfect for library-bound students or employees who need only access to the internet.
The Android-powered EasyPC E790 was just announced, coming with a pricetag that will put on a smile on those hunkering down in these trying economic times. Coming from Menq, a China-based company, this netbook is priced at $89. It?s equipped with a 7-inch screen, 400Mhz Arm9 processor, and 128MB of ram ( more than enough to run Adroid ).
Computer Geeks will continue to keep you posted about the latest news in the world of computing.
Once a burgeoning niche product, laptops are fast becoming an established alternative for consumers opting for the convenience of portability over? being tied to a desktop. While desktops will continue to be used for tasks that aren?t feasible with the average laptop, the technology of portable computing has progressed to the point that many functions once limited to those desk bound mainstays are now available for people on the move.
When choosing a portable computing solution, a number of considerations come into play, the primary one being the functionality you?re looking for. Many use their laptops for gaming, while others simply want a portable word processor; ?one might just want wireless accessibility for their local? hotspot, or they?re looking for something on which to play a DVD while commuting to and from work.
The uses for these portable systems are as varied as the technology housed within them.
Deciding on a laptop can mean the difference between $400.00 or $1,000.00, the gulf between the price tags is determined by the functionality required by the user. ?If you?re solely looking for something with which to browse the internet, you?re not going to require a high-end system that might be tailored for the purpose of editing videos. If you’re an avid PC gamer, you?re going to want your system outfitted with a lot of ram, which is just another variable when assessing the expense you?ll incur.
When shopping for a laptop, ask questions. If you?re still unsure of what kind of portable solution will work for your needs, give Computer Geeks a call.
