Hi
I'm going to be given a free copy of Vista Home Premium from my work. I was just wondering if you think my T4010 lifebook would be able to run it ok? I know it won't be able to run aero because of the graphics card. But do you think it will be able to cope with the rest?

Thanks Steve

It should run it fine. It runs decently on my 1.73Ghz Centrino.

I believe it is recommended to have 128mb GPU memory.

I believe it is recommended to have 128mb GPU memory.

True, in order to enjoy the aero experience. If you don't mind not using it, 64MB of graphics RAM is OK.

Please read the rules, folks!
