I am considering getting a new computer. But I need advice. Every computer I've
owned has been problematic in running smoothly because the hardware has
been underpowered relative to the requirements of the software I've tried to run.
I've certainly learned that systems off the shelf are often underpowered in
terms of the amount of RAM they come with.
So here are some questions: what's a good new machine (in terms of hardware) for Internet browsing where you may have, say, a dozen windows open at a time? A related question is this - what hardware configuration does it take to have Windows Vista run
well? How well does the search capability in Windows Vista work?
I have Windows XP Home edition on a Pentium IV 1.3 GHz 384 Meg RDRAM and it
gets sluggish when I have too many tasks running simultaneously. Also, searching
tends to take far too much time.
Pretty broad questions I realise. Any and all help sincerely appreciated.
