Yeah I'm familiar with Windows 7 optimization. Will probably run my usual registry optimizations along with CCleaner and disabling IE and things like that. Whatever RT7Lite is I'll try it but I'll prioritize using MPC/CoreAVC first as CoreAVC is the most efficient h.264 decoder I know of.

kaivorth: Don't have Win7 and other actually installed yet. I'm just wondering if it's worth the trouble or should I get on my knees in front of my mom for her laptop (which I likely won't be allowed to use), which is a K8 x2 1.9Ghz/HD 3100
Heck if it was easier than a laptop I'd throw some desktop parts in one of my numerous small form factor cases and bring a monitor

Using VLC on a Celeron M @ 1.5GHz I can play 720p fullscreen with no lag at all, on a graphics media accelerator. Yours is obviously a little faster so it should do fine. CPU usage gets no higher than 90% and this is on XP Pro. Celeron M is a downgraded Pentium M. Although I also had a Pentim M @ 1.5GHz and noticed no difference in performance from the Celeron M. They're partly based on P6 which is why they were so good. The Pentium 4 for desktops was an awesome processor but the mobile ones sucked.

That's great to hear. I'm pretty sure it won't be much different on Windows 7 and more recent codecs.
The Pentium 4 for desktops actually wasn't that good... stack it up against a K8 of the same generation with half the clock speed & power consumption and the P4 loses largely

i'm happy to report that not only does it play 720p with room to spare (70% CPU usage or so) but it also happened to be the fastest Windows 7 install yet I had ever done

Idle CPU usage is also 3% on average versus 10-13% on Vista
