This summer I got the Zoom H1, which was only $99 and it has been fantastic for doing interviews. Batteries last forever and the internal memory is terrific.

I don't have any interest in a recorder that won't do 24 bits these days, and I want the option to sample at 96kHz or higher, even if I don't use it all the time. So I would call that Tascam recorder obsolete.

Had very good luck re-loading the secondary DAW computer in the studio with Windows 7. All my hardware is W7 compatible, but re-loading software, making sure to save 15 years of documents, etc will be a real pain. XP was just an upgrade from Win2K, which was an upgrade from WinNT, so I was able to keep my document files intact, e-mail boxes, etc. This is a whole 'nother challenge.
