    doesnt really matter as the component manufacturers will release drivers, If you know your specs you can download drivers straight from them and bypass Acer ... FYI for the 5920G there is no problems with drivers as im typing on one now with 7 on it and all drivers were on the DVD and windows update

    You can still use vista 32 and 64 bit drivers too.

    battery time is up roughly 20% or so here, and there is native drivers for everything ( NVIDIA video, realtek audio, Wlan, chipset etc. ) if you want I could bundle a driver set for you and send them to you in the next few days to get you ready or send links
