    So i've been searching all over this forum and I've found a few older threads about running Win7 on the tc1100, however I'm still not 100% sure if it can support areo without significant lag. Can someone verify this for me? I just want to be 100% sure before I go out and buy another one(sold mine a few years back) :D Thanks guys!

    If there's a way to get Win7 Aero working on the TC1100, I don't know of it. The drivers just don't support it. I've even scoured the Internet the best I could, and found nothing on Aero aside from some comments on old Vista betas from the 6800 build range.

    (I don't get it myself, since a GeForce 4 Go 420 is more powerful than the Intel GMA950, and THAT seems to support Aero...)

    The TC1100 has a GeForce Go 420 in it, which does not have the capabilities to run the DWM required for Aero Glass.

    It's not even a DX9 card.

    Basically, the only requirement for Aero is that a WDDM driver exists, and that requires d3d9, among other things.
