I would like to know if I could run 32bit Windows 7 on this laptop well.
The HD is 60 GB which I don't think was included.

Try running Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and this will tell you if there is any compatibility issues with upgrading. Also you may want to check with the manufacturers website Hewlett-Packard to see if there is drivers available for your system for Win7.

It'll run. It won't absolutely fly as good as a shiny new one would, but it'll run.

By the way, it's an 80Gb hard drive, not 60. The drive's split into a 60 and a 20.

Thank you! I'll do just as you said, and I had no idea it was 80gb. Thanks.
