I must say, I'm blown away by the interface (Vista Business - but I don't think it makes a difference). However, I wasn't expecting my Dual Core 2GHZ Speed Bitch with ATI X1600 256MB + 256MB Shared to battle. And it does.
Try do more than a couple of things at once, at you're bloody lucky it's beautiful - because you do quite a bit of sitting and watching.
I'm also starting to run into the compatibility problems. My Acer Travelmate 8210 is now without Bluetooth, proper touchpad settings, webcam and a couple of other things. I could download them, but the Acer FTP site is well, timing out - and I ain't waiting for a download at 700 bytes a second. My luck.
Who cares. It's pretty!
