The Wow Continues !!!!

So you have decided to go on the Vista path. There are certain things that you want to do before rushing out to buy the stuff. First check if your system meets the minimum requirements. You might have heard/read a lot of stuff about Vista needing these futuristic machines to be able to use it normally, and most prolly about 95% of them are not true. So what is the 5%? Well for one you do need atleast a 1.5 Ghz processor for normal usage, and faster/better processors for more advanced usage. But practically speaking, now that the Mega/Gigahertz myth has been broken, let's just take an AMD Sempron 64 2.0 Ghz as a base processor or even the 1.6 Ghz Intel Centrino as the Base for Mobile processors. Also for anything other than just browsing the internet with Aero turned off, let's have a minimum of 1 Gb of RAM and a decent graphics card (Ah! c'mon for god's sake you can buy a 'decent' graphics card for less that what it costs to buy a 'decent' pair of trousers) and atleast about 40 Gb hard disk space ....contd.....
