Windows Vista with Compaq C770

I consider buying Compaq Presario C770ED (1,73 Ghz, 3072MB DDR2).

Does anybody know if it is fast enough with Vista?

Thanks for your help.

    Hey John,

    Thanks for your answer, no it is not for gaming.

    I understood that for Vista ( no matter for what kind of use) a minimum of 2 gig is needed, was not sure if this was about the processor (1,7 Ghz) or for RAM (3 Gb)

    Bye Juul

Hey Zakraf, i sell laptops all the time.
The spec you have quoted above would provide a good speed running vista as long as you aint playing games.
if its for gaming i would stick with a desktop.
Hope it answers the question,,

All the best

    being honest, vista is slightly slower than xp, but alot better operating system in my opionon, specs we usually sell are about 1.7ghz with 1gb memory and they run fine, memory is cheap to add to the later, like 20-30 pounds for another gb, depending on how many slots in the laptop,

    the faster the processor the better, but i wouldnt spend a fortune on a laptop, i find most people keep them for 3 years on average, either too slow or they have broken it by then..

    i hope this helps but if u have anymore questions feel free to ask...



    All the best

Laptops are usless for playing games. They may play some low quality games but there is really nothing you can do to upgrade a laptop to make it suitable for playing games. If you are planning on playing PC Games, buy a good Desktop Computer.
