upgrading to Windows 7 for Lightroom 4?
Jan 21, 2012

I like Lightroom and have been using it since the first beta. I've upgraded with every version and been happy that I have. It looks like Lightroom 4 is something I would like to upgrade to.

My problem is the last machine I built I went with XP instead of Vista. Up until this time I've been perfectly satisfied with the machine I'm using right now. I'm running XP 32-bit, 4 GB of DDR 2 RAM, an Intel E8600. I've run the Windows 7 compatibility utility and think I can deal with most my peripherals. So, my question is, do I upgrade the operating system only or do I upgrade by replacing the machine?

Of course, then I have to balance whether I'm willing to toss a perfectly well functioning machine just to be able to use lightroom 4 or that it will cost an extra $200 to upgrade if I just go with Windows 7, but that's a different question.

Thanks for any thoughts!
