I have an Advent 4211 with 2 gb of RAM. Recently, I have been thinking about upgrading to Windows 7 and ditching the pre-installed XP. I have read in many places that 7 runs quicker that XP on netbooks (?) and who am I to argue? So, I have a proper Windows 7 disc and was wondering what is the best method of installation - external optical drive or usb key? A friend said that the key method is the best but he has been known to talk shit in the past!
So, any advice will be gratefully received.
