    Well microsofts official line is 1GB (for the 32bit version) so really 2GB ought to be fine. It's just I'd prefer 3 or even 4. To be honest though if you've been managing with 1, 2 will seem fast :)

    I definitely did that earlier. I thought that was a nice tool.

    However, I found a great deal on Dell for a new laptop for about $150 more than it would cost to buy windows 7 and upgrade both the memory and battery. So I just went for it. Merry Christmas to me! :D

    Wow! Was that a day after Thanksgiving deal, or a cyber Monday precursor? :D
