    Just a note to the reviewer below.
    The reason they don't include the language pack is due to size limitations of the DVD disk, language packs are very huge in size.
    most thing are downloaded off the internet now as its a sure way to get the latest update rather than a peice of software that was written onto a disk years ago and is possibly out of date.
    on to the windows, I have been a windows user since 95 and owned every edition since including 98, 2000, me, xp, vista etc and windows 7 offers the most stable and reliable computer for every day use I've used.
    I was given a Mac Mini by a friend who upgraded to an iMac and although Mac OS Snow leopard is good to use I still feel windows has that edge. I use both daily I am a fanboy of neither but i found myself getting apps to make Mac OS more like windows with features liker snap and aero peek.
    Overall Windows 7 is a great operating system and unlike mac there is a lot of customization options and you still got the problem of viruses.
    If you adopt this policy you should be fine.
    use internet explorer 9 that way everything gets scanned for viruses as you download.
    If your a torrent user then before u unrar any file be sure to scan.
    try not to open anything that looks suspicious and download Windows securitey essensials, its free and an excellent nag free anti virus.

     Did the upgrade and for most people a WASTE of time

    I bought this EXPENSIVE ITEM to update a foreign bought laptop to change into English, however, the LANGUAGE UPDATE is NOT in the Box; you have to download it from the internet. Just maddening.
    The problem is that I could not use the laptop to do that as I didn`t understand the language of the laptop I bought in Japan, (a 3D Dynabook). It seems that Anyone who would NEED the Language UPDATE is someone who buys abroad, and wants the laptop/PC in their iwn language; and in this respect MICROSOFT Forgot AGAIN the experience of the customer, and who and how it would be beneficial. You cannot even find the word ENGLISH in Chinese Kanji on a Japanese Laptop. Its taken WEEKS to get it to (partially) work.
