I find Win7 with 1GB RAM runs like absolute crap =/

With 2GB+ it runs beautifully.

I have been running it for ages with 512mb and have no problems.
There was some of the so called experts on here though that said it wouldnt work just dont run too many apps with it

I have a HP7600 with w7 and 1gbram, it runs like a rocket :-)

It will only run smoothly on 1 Gig ram if there aren't any memory hungry programs running. Recommended minimum Ram for Win7 is 2Gig.

well its running fine with 768mb :) ,just with a few tweeks and readyboost.

Runs fine on 1gb, on my parents pc it boots to the desktop about the same as 2gb. But then again they only use the net for web browsing and emails and the odd office document.

No, just don't run it with Aero theme or any theme altogether and it'll work just as XP did with the same amount of RAM.
