In Pictures: Modern PCs that run the Windows you really want

Here are 12 good laptops and desktops that will run Windows 7 for a very long time

7. Dell Latitude XT3 If you have a lot of money, you can get a really powerful laptop running Windows 7 from Dell in the form of the Latitude XT3. The maxed-out configuration boasts a 2.8GHz Core i7, 4GB of RAM (sadly, the maximum available from Dell), 256GB SSD, long-life battery, an external rewritable DVD drive, a FireWire port, a VGA port, an HDMI port, a MiniSD slot, three USB 2 ports, and an eSATA/USB 2 combo port. You'll need an extra-cost external drive for CDs and DVDs. The LCD screen can swivel side to side, which is very handy in presentations to a group of people sitting at the same table.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
