    1. If you are looking to have a "normal" windows system for a netbook.
      We do not suggest upgrading more than windows 7 professional.
      In Windows 7,the higher the edition, the more background application will be running, thus using up the limited hardware resource your netbook have making your netbook run slower.

      Wikipedia has a summarized read for all windows 7 editions features:

      Hope you find the version you need.
