About Desktop Computers Windows 7
Most major personal computing brands produce desktop computers, including Dell, Zoostorm, Packard Bell, HP and Acer. Desktop computers are often built in to plastic or metal towers, with some much smaller and compact than others. Desktop PCs are much more customisable than laptops, with slots in the tower casing allowing users to add extra elements to the hardware. Some desktop PCs are built specifically for gaming, these high-powered units will contain large amounts of processing RAM, and a graphics card that is purpose-built for high-quality video rendering.
Windows 7 is a common operating system for desktop PCs constructed within the last few years, and it was the last Windows OS before Microsoft included the metro dashboard with Windows 8. Windows 7 was critically acclaimed for being much faster and smoother than Vista, offering the user unparalleled desktop control, and a speedy boot-up to match. The operating system improved on the compatibility levels of Vista, making programmes that once worked on XP available to Windows users again.
Running Vista was a chore for some lower-powered PCs, with some laptops not being able to handle the operating system at all. Windows 7 has much lower minimum requirements, and feels competent on just about any piece of modern hardware. Windows 7 revolutionised Microsoft's searching system, attempting to make it a little bit more akin to Apple's Mac. A new 'libraries' function was included with 7, making it much easier to keep track of all of the documents of a particular type on your PC. For example, videos from many different locations (even if they weren't in your documents folder) could be tracked through 'my videos' - the same goes for pictures and audio files.
