Hi Guys,
I want to upgrade my nice acer one 522 to an ssd and get to use all my 4GB ram by upgrading win 7 starter.
Is there an economical way of doing it ? The win 7 product key purchase has me a bit puzzled, surely I don't need to shell out over a $100 for a legit one ? ( I don't want 8 or 10 :)
cheers for any suggestions
Pete

Yup you'll have to buy another dvd. I dont think the starter key will work with another version

Increase your GB RAM.

start with: 8GB

Look for SSD. vs. HDD
DuraWrite(TM) technology?
non-volatile TBW (total bytes written) increases retainability reliability and performance
Solid-State Drive 480GB
Is this the max? we want min 2 TB SSD !!

I don't need to shell out over a $100 for a legit one (win 7 product key) ?
Are you buying from Microsoft store?
store.microsoft.com

What we want is Windows 7 product key.
search for "Windows 7 product key"

WYSIWYG - what you see is Windows 10.

Win 10 is "unproprietary, images bigger than text" interface.
Its like calling the "Start button" something other than the words "Start"

I personally tend to avoid anything (purportedly) higher-version than Windows 7.

surprise entry into options :)
Seems to bind tightly with all their bings and crud.
I though they got pinged $m years ago for making IE the only game in town
spose it's a new century ...

You'll have to install another version if you want 4 or 8 gb anyway. I think Win10 Home only supports up to 4 GB

Probably better if you upgrade to Win10 from 7 starter.

Windows 10 Home 64-bit supports 128GB. 32-bit (any edition) supports 4GB.

You'll run into problems.


search for "Windows 7 product key"By searching to Product keys all you'll get is pirated /illegal keys, you WONT get any legit keys.

Windows 7 Starter will only allow 2GB Memory. Its also only 32-Bit, so even doing a upgrade to W10 Home for free you'll only get a 32-Bit Version.

The maximum amount of Memory it will take is 4GB.

4 GB is all she has or needs so if the 32bit W10 version supports it then I'm winning.
The ssd would be the main gain presumably

Yep, a SSD will be a good improvement over a standard HDD.

Windows 7 Starter upgrades to W10 Home. = FREE

any other versions of W7 you would need to pay for.

As before

"What we want is Windows 7 product key.

Is only going to give you trial,or Pirated /illegal keys.

Hi Guys,

Win7 starter usually was only on cheap, low spec machines.
That 10" laptop is very low spec (1Ghz AMD ), so dont spend too much on it .

Thanks Chap
yep all good. It actually performs really well and has the better screen.
The free OS update and an ssd for under $100 is pretty good
