Looking at the Specifications for the c707tu, I would strongly recommend a new computer rather than upgrading to Windows 7.

At a minimum, I would upgrade the RAM to the maximum 2GB and get a new larger hard drive.
I would go with at least a 250 GB drive, but 500 GB would be better.

Keep in mind that Installing Windows 7 formats the hard drive and starts over.

MAKE SURE TO BACK UP ALL CRITICAL FILES AND SETTINGS BEFORE STARTING.

You can also use the Windows 7 Easy Transfer tool to help transfer some of your files and some settings from XP to Windows 7.

Keep in mind that you also need to find the install disks or files for ALL of your applications, as none of your installed software will transfer.

Like I stated, I would save my money and get a newer computer.
