Specifications needed to run VistaLocked
I am in the process of purchasing a low cost laptop. Below are the specifications for the model I am considering.
What I would like to know is will this machine run Vista at a satisfactory speed? For $100 less I can buy a machine with XP preinstalled. Do you think it is a bad idea to buy a new machine with XP which OS will, sooner or later, become obsolete.
