The store where I work is just now switching over management, so my 'old boss' is still coming in sometimes to help around. He came in yesterday bragging about his brand new laptop he bought for his new real estate job. I heard him say "It has three GIGABYTES of ram." (Well this could be a lie, because he knows as much about technology as a slug, but still.) He opened up the Chess game to show me, and it was LAGGY. It lagged opening, the mouse lagged, the chess pieces skipped around when moving!!! 3GB of MEMORY and it still can't load a default game? Is this ridiculous? Is Vista seriously this bad, or do my eyes deceive me? Hey, as my brother always says, "You know which laptop was proven to run Vista faster than any other laptop in the world? A mac."
