Is Windows 7 Home or Ultimate a better choice for a laptop?
its depends on your needs. if you are a professional then ultimate is the best option
i want to buy dell laptop . so i have question is there windows home basic or windows ultimate good for using.
I'd go for the Ultimate verrsion, I think the Home edition is a bit sloppy.
ultimate is alwys better than the home edition. but it depends on what your are going to do with the laptop. if its for simple word processing/web browsing, the home edition should be sufficient
I would recommend the ultimate but it depends on how good the specs are.
it depends on your needs, but usually home premium covers most of the needs of causal computer user
of course Windows 7 Ultimate is the best choice for laptop compared to Home Premium Version of it because it has a lot more features than other versions.
but, if you're willing to buy a new laptop having one of those operating systems, I suggest to you to wait till 26-October which is Windows 8 Launch. it will be better.
currently I have windows 7 ultimate but I wait for windows 8 launch to buy new laptop.
ultimate will be better
Here are the features of the different versions of Windows 7.
There is really no reason to get Windows 7 Ultimate. You probably won't benefit from it at all. The only two unique benefits in Ultimate are bit locker (or just use the free TrueCrypt) and access to switch to 35 languages (do you need other languages for some reason?). Those don't really sound all that beneficial to me personally. Nearly every additional feature can be found with very good and free alternatives. If you want a virtual machine of XP (XP Mode), just use VMWare Player (or Workstation) or Virtualbox for free. If you need back up your computer, there are plenty of free options. Just stick with Windows 7 Home Premium if you are buying it. There is not real benefit and it will save you a lot of money.
it depends on your needs. if you are a casual-to-intermediate user, a Home Premium will do.
If the laptop will be connecting to an Active Directory Domain or you require XP Mode for some of your existing applications, you should go with either Pro or Ultimate. If neither of those cases apply, Home Premium should be sufficient for your needs.
If your laptop is not much powerful to handle big tasks and running many background processes,then you must choose home edition.Also,for better battery life,home edition is recommended.
The Ultimate version gives little more to basic users than home version. Most of the added features are for power users except the XP compatibility mode that few home users might like to have. It's not like the difference from XP home to pro versions that offered much more usability. Home would be better due to cost, unless you wish to have everything top of the line or would actually use the added features often.
You dont give any specs to compare against but basically if your laptop is of decent specs capable of running either version then the question should be Why should I choose Win 7 Ultimate over Home Premium and if you are asking that question then the answer will be You shouldnt.
For what you get extra in Ultimate its not worth the price for the general user.
