For testing websites, Can I test for Windows 7 on Windows 7 Starter and can it get IE9?

Asked by DrewJ (436points) August 19th, 2011

I work at a website company and we need to test our website for IE9 on either windows 7 or vista. So we need to purchase a device that can run both.

I’m looking into some cheap laptops such as:

This runs something called Windows 7 starter. I was wondering, for those if you out there with knowledge of testing:

1. What is Windows 7 starter and is it a worthy substitute for just plain windows 7 in terms of testing websites for OS?

2. Can Windows 7 starter get IE9?
