I went to Germany, and they had a good deal on a laptop, so I bought it, it has windows 7 and as I said, it is in German. Anyone know how I can revert it to English?

Just make your own political party, give hate speeches about how Macs are controlling your economy and have some kind of secret police for your laptop.

If done correctly, your laptop should obey you. You know how them Germans roll...

Here's what you've got to do: Go to start --> Systemsteuerung --> Zeit, Sprache und Region --> Land oder Region ändern --> change all the settings to US/English.

That might not work if it was installed only in German, but it is worth a shot.

Also, have fun with that QWERTZ keyboard...

That's the least difficult thing to change.

If all fails, buy a windows 7 disc or pirate it. If yours is 64-bit and/or RAM + GFX card memory > 4GB, get 64-bit.

Your beloved piece of expensive shit is just low/mid-end component veled in good design.

1200$ MacBook pro vs 800$ HP dv7 6150eo

Graphics cards
(Macbook pro) Intel HD Graphics 3000: 10 FPS in Mincraft, true story.
(800$ HP) Radeon HD 6770: 50 FPS in The Witcher 2.

Also, i7 could be the lowest i7. Apple keeps details away and their site is shit to navigae through to get exact specifications. For some buy a computer for the stuff inside, not marketing.

Why should he buy a new expensive overpcied computer instead of an operative system?

rubbing a magnet around your computer should do the trick

Just torrent Windows 7 then install it in English with the serial key on the bottom of your laptop. Then it'll be fresh and not have all the bloatware on laptops anyway.

Plus, perfectly legal.

Depending on what he is used to, it might be physically laid out completely differently

US-International:
German:

I see, but you could just change the "DE" at the bottom right to "EN". It doesn't change how it looks on the laptop, but the keys will return the same input as an American keyboard.

But see how the enter key is shaped differently, and the \ | key is left of y (z)? THAT cant be changed.

Depending on the laptop, it's just a german version of a mainstream laptop. To get an EN-US or a EN-UK version of a laptop keyboard is about £13 and easy to replace.

Okay, but still, these keys are relatively unimportant, and changing the internal keyboard settings to EN (US) won't bring too much trouble.

I barely look at the keyboard while I type anyway, so I wouldn't have been bothered with it. My (Norwegian) keyboard is actually pretty similar to the german one, but it is QWERTY though.

Press "Alt" and "Shift" weil es die Sprache ändern wird. Though that may only work once you have two languages to choose from. The "DE" setting makes smileys much easier

On a german or english layout?

German ? is next to the 0 sign, hold shift.
English is to the left of the right shift.

Not sure what double points are
