    Sorry. My machine specs are as follows:

    Evesham Voyager 3200 laptop.
    Athlon 64 3200 desktop processor (yes it's loud when under load!)
    1 GB PC 400 RAM
    80 GB hard drive
    DVD RW
    Buffalo 54g Wireless LAN (get detacted as a Broadcom chipset under Vista, but works anyway).

    The performance is only held back by a slightly slow hard drive, but once fully booted it motors through all tasks and runs smoothly. The bulit in apps do seem to require a while toload themselves indicating that they are slight on the large side.

    I like it, and TBH it is rather annoying with the Do you want to's but thats only on for testing really so you know what you are doing etc.... so I wouldn't worry they will vanish shortly. Its starting to come together, I will see more at the conference I am at in a couple of weeks (search back on the forums for details of it as its free!) So I am looking forward to it, I suspect that I may end up purchasing a large volume of VGA cards though, but I am sure I could get very good discount on 350 VGA cards

    Now downloaded Vista and about to burn the DVD. Will be installing it on a 'spare' HP nc8000 tomorrow to see how it fairs.

    Will possibly review it in the next newsletter. Please email your reviews to edugeek AT rm-chrlton.net
