BodybyFisher Posted February 27, 2009 Report Share Posted February 27, 2009 Well about 2 months ago my ACER laptop overheated and died. I found that the cooling fan had ingested a lot of dust creating a impacted clog at the fan outlet that I was unable to see I have been reluctant to buy a computer with Vista on it as my experience was that it was a DOG, and very annoying with its constant dumbed down dunning and prompting and warnings. Well I did some research and found out that the VISTA 64 bit version was much better and I have to agree it is very fast even on my lousy wireless connection which I am going to fix soon, I am too far from the wireless modem. In addition, I like that Vista 64 runs 32 bit programs with no problem The machine has 4 gigs of PC2-5300 addressable ram with this 64 bit OS which helps a lot with vista's graphical interface. I disabled the UAC (user account control) which stops the dumbed down stupid questions the OS constantly throws at you http://www.blackviper.com/WinVista/supertweaks.htm I liked that it has an HDMI output, so I can connect it to an HDTV, the Lightscribe DVD writer should be cool, it did not have bluetooth but I can buy a USB bluetooth adapter for $41 if I want. I would have liked to have the N wireless protocal, but G is pretty quick. One of the biggest selling points was that it came with a 12 cell lithium-ion battery giving me long battery life. Once I get used to the keyboard, I think I will like this computer, I bought it at Best Buy..
