5. You need a faster PC to run Vista smoothly
4. Can be turned off, but I have got used to it now.
3. I found the Vista's Windows updates is better than XP.
2. IE 7 is slower than other browsers, so that nothing new.
1. Yes, 1GB at least, 2GB preferable.

Why is it then...

by Ishron In reply to Use a Mac

I travel a lot. Spend way too much time on airplanes. So sad for me.

Anyway, this does give me a lot of time to look around at what others are doing with their laptops. I see more MacBooks running Vista than I do OSX. Not that I am a fan but this speaks volumes about what people are running when $$ is not an object. Yah, it may suck but it sucks less than other stuff.
