Alright, well here goes. First off if out of the box performance. 5/10. With no programs installed it's ok, so I didn't complain, because it was my birthday present. After a while, normal programs started filling up my hard drive and performance decreased. Photoshop and Flash are hard to run. Gaming is a no. I finally decided that the RAM had to be upgraded. Unfortunately there was only 1 GB of RAM preinstalled, and the max it could be upgraded to is 2 GB. Ehh. Performance increased, and I was slightly satisfied. Then, my PC got infected after my Trend Micro security software ran out. And guess what, I had to pay 19.95 for restore discs. Yeah right. So being as awesome as I am, I downloaded the Windows Vista Install Disc .IFO file and burned it to a disc. I reinstalled Vista and It was better. Now I know to use less programs and keep a good 50 GB of space open on my hard drive to ensure maximum performance.
