Windows 7 - Do I Need It????

I've just purchased an Acer Extensa laptop for the missus that operates with Windows Vista. As part of the purchase I'm being given the option to upgrade to Windows 7.

I know absoloutely nothing about this stuff, so what would be the benefits of doing it??

Also, I think there is a cost involved, although it may be just a minimal shipping charge. What would be a reasonable price to pay??

Any help gratefully appreciated for this here Technophobe !!

Windows 7 loads faster,uses less resources and looks a little better and so far doesnt seem to be as prone to freezing and crashing,Also Paint has been given a nice update which even allows you to resize pics and the way documents and folders are laid out seems a bit more logical,
win7 has been very well received and is widely regarded as a significant improvement over the much-maligned vista, so in short, yes, go for it, unless they are charging an exorbitant shipping fee....
(obviously depending on the cost.)

£64 is the going rate for upgrade i think.

I have gone from Vista to 7 at work & i'm happy, tried the beta on an old laptop which worked out well.
the media center stuff is much much better
