HP Pavilion 15t is a good laptop for running Windows 7. The laptop meets the system requirements stated by Microsoft, features a touch screen and receives positive performance reviews.
Microsoft suggests a CPU that runs at 1 gigahertz, 2 gigabytes of RAM and a GPU that is compatible with DirectX 9 for Windows 7. The most affordable configuration of the Pavilion 15t features a CPU that runs at 2.8 gigahertz, eight gigabytes of RAM and a GPU that supports DirectX 12. Any version of the laptop holds enough power to run Windows 7.
As Microsoft no longer allows its hardware partners to sell laptops with the home version of Windows 7, users must purchase and install the operating system separately. As of 2015, Windows 7 DVDs are available at Amazon.com.
