I will take some pictures, but they may not be the best quality. My girlfriend has a great camera I was going to use but her daughter needs to borrow it. Oh well.

I'm getting ready to install 7 RC on a Dell Precision 370, 2.8ghz Hyper-Threading P4, 1GB Ram, 80GB Hard Drive, originally had XP Pro. The Front Side Bus is 800mhz, I want to see how well it does. I may take out a 512mb stick of RAM and see how it runs that way too. I wonder if 7 will find all the drivers, ????. Or how hard will it be for me to go and find them???

I will have this computer set up and running for others to try 7 out on an older PC, so they can see how it does. Reports say it runs very well on systems like this, but we'll see. Additionaly, my i7 rig has the full licensed copy of Ultimate that others can try out, and my parents computer running 7 RC is new with a AMD Athlon II x2 FSB equivalent to 800mhz.

The idea is to have a old/slower, medium, and then fast/"state of the art" computers for people to compare 7 on.

So far I have 10 RSVP's with 5 "+ 1's". I never got a chance to go up to the colleges and see if anyone wanted to come to the party like I stated earlier in this thread. Oh well, it will be fun.

Yes, I'm still going. Thanks NeonFX for relaying, lol. I've been knee deep in homework and prepping for finals week (this week), that's why I haven't been online much.
Finals over now for me, so I can get ready for the trip. I'll email ya later Sporty.
I don't have a camera, but my phone can take (crappy) pics. Hopefully someone will bring a good one. I want some pics too! This will be fun! :)

My party was last night, currently in the process of uploading some pics. It was pretty cool actually, and I was surprised at the turnout - a whole bunch of mates just "turned up"!!! It was great.
