HP dc5800 Windows Vista Experience Index

It has been more than a year since I got transferred to the IT department at my office. There’s many ups and downs, but overall I really love what I am doing for a living right now. I love computers, I am fascinated by it and doing computer related stuff for a living is fun.

I have been learning a lot this past year, although I never wrote anything here about it before. I decided to change it a little bit and try to write down what I’ve learned so that other people could benefit from my experience also. I might not write all about it, but I will try to write about the things that I thought will be useful for those who read my postings.

My companies mainly uses Windows XP for the PCs, mainly because we decided that Vista is too resource hungry to be utilized effectively on our PCs. Now that Windows 7 is set to be released in less than two months and considering the fact that Microsoft won’t be giving Windows XP support starting next year, perhaps we need to start considering using Windows 7 for our next OS of choice.

For our latest PCs we choose the HP dc5800 with Windows XP as the OS, although we have the option of installing Vista also. It was equipped with Intel Dual Core E5200 Processor, 1GB of DDR2 PC6400 and an Integrated Intel GMA 3100. It was more than enough to run Windows XP, but will it be enough to run Windows 7? I believe so, but I still want to test it out.

Yesterday we received another delivery of HP dc5800 PC with Windows Vista preinstalled. Before I downgraded it to XP, I tried to test it with Vista. If it could run Windows Vista nicely, it surely will run Windows 7 also. So I decided to run the Windows Experience Index test, and below are the result.

It was a good enough result and I have to admit that Vista runs quite nicely on it. So I guess upgrading to Windows 7 will most likely produce the same, if no better result. We’ll just have to see then.

    Has anyone here ever tried Evony? I suggest checking it out for anyone who wants to try something different, it’s free and should keep you entertained for quite a long time. I found a link that gives you some extra start up money when you sign up which helps a lot for beginners so go through that if you want to try it out. Hope you guys like it.
