And I agree too, running Kubuntu 14.04 LTS on an HP Pavilion dv7 is acceptable, running Windows 7 was dog slow - hard drive crashed and we lost the Windoze license, sad story, all I could do was install Linux and go on instead of dual-booting when I needed Windoze - such a shame :-) :-) :-)

The hardware is 6 years old and, at the time, Tech Report called it
"the best netbook we've ever tested". So it was quite good (for a
netbook) at the time.

Everything depends on the OP's intended use, of course. I just wanted
to disagree that you need better hardware for Linux than for Windows,
or at least for CentOS 6 than Windows 7.
