faster video card!! holy, 335MB isn't good enough? the laptop I upgraded
from had 16MB and I had almost no problems at all.
I'm starting to get very discouraged with Vista because it seems like it
requires much more and gives less in return.
there is no way that the benefits of Vista is that much more superior to XP
Pro that it will only run satisfactorily with a top-of-the-line computer.
Crap, I thought for sure with what this computer came with I would have no
problems doing what I wanted , when I wanted... especially upgrading from my
Dell Inspiron 8100, P3 866/40GB/512MB/16MB video. Xp ran extremely well and
played all my videos, games (most) and movies, no problem.
yesterday I was so excited about my new investment, now I sit here thinking
the money would have been better spent on my car or maybe a new Mac.
HP Pavilion V9000 Entertainment Laptop
Vista Home Premium/dual core 1.8/160GB/2GB ram/335MB Graphic/17" widescreen
.... and a whole wack of bells and whistles
