This is when I point the finger at people that say vista runs faster than XP, cause its rubbish!

Vista takes more resources. It operates on 64 bit arch, and It runs on IEO000 AA background.

So it IS slower.XP requires 64mb ram to run on minimum. No services but explorer. Vista requires 178!





All that aside, I use Vista, but it ain't faster!


Disable a lot of the not needed services and you will see a performance increase.

Your just proving my point, you gotta have the hardware to backup the very high requirements for Vista.

The point is I can run p3 with XP that originally ran 98 and they run flawless with 386MB SD RAM. But You get a XP machine that was a standard machine with 512MB of memory and upgrade it to Vista and you got major problems!

or if all else fails try ready boost if you have a flash drive lying around.
Dude, that laptop has Alzheimer's. Just buy more memory, anything else is just ridiculous with the prices nowadays.

How does new, modern hardware benefit your average user?

Moreover, how does vista, then, benefit the average user?

The best option would be to just upgrade the ram. Considering a 512MB stick of sodimm costs $10.49 on newegg that would be your best option. The pc will perform much better with the upgrade. Vista can run with 512MB of ram but it will not run well. The same thing can be said for an XP machine on 128MB of ram (which emachines did sell a while back.)
