    If I were you I would go to the Microsoft website and download Windows 7 Home Premium from there. It is legal and doesn't require an optical drive. Even better, don't upgrade. I think the HP mini comes with Windows 7 Starter. The only major difference in features that I could find is that Starter doesn't give you the ability to change your desktop background. I think there are third party programs that will let you change your desktop background for free. I don't think it is worth it to pay to get a new operating system that only has a few more features which most people don't even use.

    I think the ability to change your desktop background should come with all operating systems but it doesn't. I wouldn't want to pay for something like that.

    yes, but you may want to get 2 gb of ram if you can access the slot.

    You should also be able to install from a usb thumb drive instead if you dont have a external dvd drive.
