umm that's what it's supposed to do. It stores data on there for faster retrieval. You can always change the amount of space it uses.

Aero runs slow on LH B3, but that's understandable. And, my taskbar owns the original one.

Ready boost does shave a few seconds of here and there, nothing spectacular but you could say the same about buying the cpu above the one you currently own and it's cheap.

I've been using Vista Ultimate for about 2 months now and would never go back to xp, not had any problems to date and makes running multi apps a breeze (combined with my 30" monitor which i've been lucky enough to get).

So by the sounds of it Vista is pretty good with only minor problems that should be fixed with time.

Currently im running XP but i downloaded the Vista Inspirat pack, so XP look like vista but its still XP because no way that my PC would run Vista.

I love Vista also, I've had it since the day it came out, I haven't reinstalled it since, but I will once SP1 comes around.

Yeah disabling UAC makes everything better, readyboost seems okay, there are a few program errors here and there but I like it better than XP.
