|Ok, so ditch the 4200RPM drive and get another 512MB of memory. And that should give a more tangible performance boost than upgrading the CPU?|
Also, I did use a real XP Pro installation. I threw out that Gateway recovery disc long ago. Nothing useful was on it except for network and synaptics drivers, and I can get those online easily enough.
I'm not sure if this is even cost-effective anymore... SODIMMs are expensive and I already have 2x256 sticks, so that means I'd have to buy a whole new 1GB set. Also, laptop hard drives are also quite expensive...
I think I'll just start saving my pennies and try to score a Centrino Duo system sometime... jump on the Core 2 bandwagon!
Thanks for all your input though guys.
I wish my lawn was emo so it would cut itself.
