1- 7 like XP's resource requirements with Vista features and a little more. 7 runs basically on very less resources compared to vista. It also requires less hard disc space for installation.
2- It has an additional facility for supporting Touch screen technology. This facility is arriving very soon in Display System's I mean monitors in India. Currently it is available but with a very hefty price tag. It like something you see in ATM's or new I phones.
3- Task bars changed . Quick launch has been banished and in place is a jump list like you had grouped windows in vista/xp. Many people who were in habit of the older things are finding it crazy. I am myself missing " see desktop" button which earlier used to be in the quick launch.
and my final verdict It's leagues ahead of vista in term of speed and performance.
