Look, doing a OS reinstall, along with the subsequent programs and data reinstall, is mostly a game of sit and wait. Back up the data you have and give yourself a weekend to get it moving and upgrade. It is absolutely the best route to take so that you can do some marginal hardware upgrades with greater success (such as upgrading the RAM) and so that you can take better advantage of Win7's better reliability, along with the SSD upgrade and all. It wouldn't take so much time as to NOT be worth the trouble, as your machine would essentially fly after that.
