quote: My GF bought a Dell notebook with a Core 2 1.83GHz cpu, 2GB ram, 120GB 7200rpm HDD which came with Vista Home Premium
quote: I bought a new laptop 3 weeks ago. Vista of course in installed. It is fine and all but what a resource hog.
quote: Oh and then I found out that if I installed XP on it it would void my warranty and would just plain not work anyway.
quote: This thing has a C2 Duo T7200 w/2 GB's ram and runs Corel X at the same speed as my 3 year old 3.2 P4 with 1 GB ram.
quote: A P4 desktop processor 3.2GHz is faster than a 2.0 or 2.16 GHz processor.
quote: No. You would void software support by your PC manufacturer, but the hardware is still under warranty. Nice try though
quote: That Core 2 Duo chip is also running at 2.0 or 2.16 GHz, which is much slower than your old P4.
