So my lappy came today, and boy am I having fun. Being able to run orange box at full capacity is quite awesome. I'm not noticing any issues with Vista running slow, but I'd still like to know what processes I should turn off to make her run smoothly, as well as how to go about turning those processes off. Because of the limitations of the ordering program my dad used to get my laptop through his company, I'm stuck with Vista home. I got all the other goodies I wanted ( 4 gigs of ram etc. etc.), they just give you the short end of the stick on the OS side. Thanks in advance for any help.
