Ok walking through Office Depot today and wife spots these two for $449 after rebates:

How pathetically slow will these be, especially running Vista?

Just looking for something to surf with from the patio, bedroom, etc. Battery life not critical and no gaming. Plus an exposure to Vista first hand...

-Yes, I know I will have to upgrade the pathetic 512 MB memory.
-Both are Celeron M about 1.7GHZ, 533 FSB with Vista Home.

Compas Presario C552US|0&Nr=200000&N=265454 9&Ne=6&An=browse

Please feel free to rant about warantee and reliability issues you've encountered with HP/Compaq or Toshiba.

If it will just be used when you're out and about for keeping in contact, they should be okay. I would look for higher specs if you think you might give them more than light occasional use.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
