More Notes on Vista - 1) READYBOOST - this is an awesome feature under vista. It makes a large prefetch file in removable devices. You take a usb key (with more than 256mb) and hook it up as a spare gas tank. Amazingly, my 513 key with 1/4 full really improved performance. Worth a try. 2) Random boot errors - I started the computer up from sleep and it went into critical boot errors after lunch. Had to use the system DVD and repair windows. Watch out 3) Wireless performance - turn off a lot of extra stacks and protocols, and make sure that you go into windows and set your connection to be "Automatically Connected" and set your connection to "Private" to avoid having to reconnect every time you bootup/wakeup 4) Media Center - sluggish but performs to expectations. Useful features if you use your notebook for DVD or TV watching. Wait for PVR drivers in the upcoming weeks/months.
