    Hello Community.

    I'm searching for fanless (that is most important) notebooks that is supported from the manufacture with Windows 7 (drivers).

    Any ideas or recommendations? Maybe some people here use such a notebook and can share the model.

    Any hint is much appreciated.

    Greetings from Germany!

    If you want a notebook with Windows 7, you'll need a notebook with a Skylake or older CPU as anything newer won't offer Windows 7 driver support.

    I can’t think of any laptop that’s fanless that comes with win7. Even the original surface pro started with windows 8.

    As for support, this link https://www.ultrabookreview.com/6520-fanless-ultrabooks/
    Should give you a list of all fanless laptops and the type of processor they have, size weight and possible price.

    I don’t know what processors support win 7 drivers, but Hannes22 pointed out that it needs to be Skylake or older

    If you can live with the looks: Toughbook CF-19 Mk7. Fanless, convertible, 3rd gen Core i5, ridiculously rugged, low resolution screen.

    I already own two laptops that meet my requirements (fanless + win 7 support):

    - Lenovo B50-30
    - Acer Aspire E3-111

    That's why I was wondering if there might be more ...

    Thanks for the link. I'll check that out.

    It wasn't me, but well ... :rolleyes:

    I suppose, when you mean Windows 7, you mean installing Win 7 yourself, not to come with Win 7 preinstalled.
    Either way, what you are looking for is a second-hand laptop with a low power processor. This means a laptop either with an Atom processor or an older m series processor: https://ark.intel.com/products/series/94025/6th-Generation-Intel-Core-m-Processors . This doesn't guarantee they will be fanless, but they are your best option.
    I don't think any new laptops match your criteria, so maybe consider Tiger Direct - http://www.tigerdirect.com/ or eBay.

    For example, the HP EliteBook Folio 1020 G1 is fanless and should support Windows 7.
