If youíre currently running XP, though, itís probably not worth paying for an upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium: that OS isnít designed for low-power devices, and it gave wayward performance in several of our tests. XP proved a stronger performer overall, and was the only OS to give a good experience across the iPlayer and YouTube tests. The interface is showing its age, but if that bothers you you can dual-boot Ubuntu and get the best of both worlds.
