Not sure that is a fair judgement though, based on how it runs on your laptop. The question has to be asked - what is your Performance Score on your laptop? If your score is not that great, than you could understand why it doesn't run well.I thought purple place was why it was $400... hmmm....
Anyway, I will have to say I haven't tested it but the ReadyBoost does sound like an interesting feature. I do like the new GUI, but I have to agree with the annoying 'security' pop ups. I have found that Vista will use some Windows XP drivers to opperate hardware which is somewhat disconcerting but also makes for somewhat of an easier change over on some machines with older integrated hardware. I'm still waiting to give the rest of my systems a go with Vista as I'm still not fully impressed with how it runs on my test laptop.
I will agree 100% with people that it's discouraging retailers/OEMs haven't realesed many drivers. While I'm currently 100% operational with all devices I have, including external devices, I can only assume my performance will increase once I receive the drivers I need from the manufacturers.
Vista installed all my hardware out of the box with some of the built-in 12,000+ drivers that are on the DVD.
Quite possible hardware will have to be upgraded to run it, but you can run the Vista Upgrade Advisor to find out what lies in store for you regarding the upgrade.
