Anyone familiar with it? I've heard it doesn't have outlook express or what Vista calls Windows mail. It's supposed to be web based e-mail which I hate. I'm about to have to get a new company laptop and I think 7 is the only thing out there right now.

I have it on my new laptop. I love it! No issues. On email, you download windows live....i think.. from their site and its kinda like the old outlook express...a standalone..at least its not attached to IE anymore, but it works well. I had Vista on it before and boy what a difference. I like it well enough I am thinking of upgrading my desktop from XP to it.

Picked up the new laptop tonight. After doing a little research at Microsoft, data transfer between Vista and 7 is supposed to be super easy. I've already got the data transfer cable from when I went from XP to Vista. I have close to 6,000 emails to transfer along with 36 message rules. I sure don't want to do that manually.

Yea D it's a work computer. I have to keep my emails for reference. I couldn't find my transfer cable last night and tried to set up an Ad Hoc network between the two. That didn't work either. Headed today to get anther cable.
