    yes flipfreak is right.
    If not for the fact that I need a powered firewire port I wouldn't even own a mac.

    If I could I would continue using XP as long as I can.

    Finally, I dived into Window 7. First impression was ...... It is FAST!!!! Start up FAST! Application running FAST! ...... now I feel Vista SUCK!

    I am impressed with the OS. Definitely will be buying 3 X Window 7 CDs for my other systems. Will be trying to install all my applications in the laptop to see its performance.

    Now I feel my system is running at its full potential.

    you didnt try win 7 RC? win 7 is a wonderful system.. it's actually an upgrade to vista ... like win 95 to win 98. i find that vista is too cluttered with rubbish... win 7 on the other hand is a reaaalll kick OS .. lolz

    however i'm still gonna get a MB or MBP if i have the moolah.. using core2duo 2.16ghz still lags for CS3 under heavy usage compared to MB(sis using it .. was comparing). even the old g4 powerbook was much smoother .. and to think i maxed out my ram to 3gb and no other background was running .. hmmm...

    I will try installing my lightroom and CS4 tonight to see its performance. Both are 64bits. If these applications are running as smooth. Window 7 is a champ.

    I wonder if win 7 installed in my desktop which is Core i7 with 6 gig ram what will the performance? ..... it will fly?

    Win 7 RC is no longer availiable to download and test. Offical Release of Win 7 will be on sale on 22th Oct 2009. Currently official win7 is only availiable thru your PC vandor.

    RC version vs the Original version got lots of different. RC version is for user to test and feedback so that original version will have most Bug FIx.

    I dont know if Win7 is the upgrade for Vista but more like its an upgrade for WinXp pro. Win 7 actually sits between WinXp pro and Vista. The best between both OS.

    Latest update. Completed installation of the Lightroom 2 and CS4 into the laptop. Running steady and smoothly. There are no rejection by Window 7 on all the softwares run on Vista 32 or 64bits. No restart on the system after installation needed for some.

    I realized one good use of Window 7, which is the faster re-opening of an application. The application operates faster as you constantly using it.

    BTW, the Window 7 I am using is the official version that will be released in the later date.

    I will be purchasing another CD to fly my core i7.

    I disagree. Vista is like the first XP. Windows 7 is like XP SP2, finally running smooth and reliably.

    That is good news. Too bad mine is not bought during the period of promotion. And I am running a Win 7 64 bit in a 32 bit system and it still so good!
