In Pictures: Modern PCs that run the Windows you really want

Here are 12 good laptops and desktops that will run Windows 7 for a very long time

Windows 7 PCs and laptops for the long term On April 8, Microsoft is ending all support for Windows XP, 12 years after its debut and seven years after its first successor, Windows Vista, debuted. Still, nearly a third of PC users continue to run XP. Microsoft wants people to adopt Windows 8, so it's launched a scare campaign to get people to toss their XP PCs.

You should move off XP, but not to Win8. Windows 7 Pro is a better Windows than XP, and it's got none of Win8's flaws. But Win7 PCs are hard to find, mostly available only from PC makers' business sites, so InfoWorld has picked the 12 best ones still available.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
