    I just bought windows 7 for my 2007 Macbook Pro. My only question is will my computer run more slowly when I am using Windows 7? Or should I have no problem?

    Thank you in advance for all your comments.

    Here are the specs:

    Processor 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    Graphics ATI Radeon X1600 256 MB
    Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 (11C74)

    P.S. I love Macrumors because every time I use it there are so many responses and they are very helpful

    slower compared to what?

    2GB Ram is fine with Win7, although more wouldn't hurt of course ;)

    your computer will not run slower. as long as you have appropriate amount of resources, which I'm sure you do you'll be fine. the only time i could see your computer running slower because of running windows would be if you were running it as a virtual machine and you didn't have enough ram, etc
