To Vista or Not To Vista, that is my problem
April 25, 2008 5:03am CST
I have a 1.46Gb Core Duo laptop with 1Gb memory and Intel media Accelerator x3100 video card. Is this enough to run Vista? Because there is no "Vista ready", nor the "Vista capable" logo on the laptop. Is Vista really better than MS XP? Would Vista allow me to run my old programs? Help me please....

AL_Bobid, I have a laptop with AMD processor, 1 GB memory, 160 HDD. And Vista is working okay in it. I have had no problem whatsoever. Yes, all the old programs are working great! I feel, there is nothing called better or best. We are apprehensive about the changes. We need to opt for a higher configuration and VISTA is such which I am sure will prove its worth in the long run. Good luck.

Hi Mimpi1911... What video card is on your AMD laptop? I heard that vista is very choosy on the video card. Can you see the aero effect? They say that even in a lesser video card you can install vista, however the aero will be disabled? By the way what is the difference between aero enabled and non-aero vista? Or it(aero)is not that necessary?

Stay with XP bro, hahaIf you wanna run Vista, at least upgrade to 2GB RAM. Well, with Vista, not all your old programs can run on it. I do recommend my customers to stay with XP unless Vista is preinstalled on the machine or they insist on wanting it. If not, XP is a better OS
