"Decent " With Vista Home Basic ?

Basic isn't that bad...

Basic isn't that bad...



What did you have previously Millenium Edition?

From the Wiki...

Windows Vista Home Basic
Similar to Windows XP Home Edition, Home Basic targets budget-conscious users not requiring advanced media support for home use. This edition lacks the Windows Aero theme (aka the ONLY thing you miss is the see-through shiny effect) with its translucent effects. However, it does support Desktop Window Manager compositing, just without the glass effect. Home Basic supports one physical CPU (i'd love to see you put a second CPU in this laptop!), but with multiple cores.[6] 64-bit Home Basic supports up to 8 GB of RAM.[7]
This version includes Windows Firewall, parental controls, Windows Movie Maker, Windows Photo Gallery, and more functions.

vs Home Premium...

Containing all features from Home Basic, this edition also supports additional features aimed for the home market segment, such as support for HDTV and DVD-authoring. It also includes games, support for mobile and tablet PCs, for network projectors, for touchscreens, and for auxiliary displays (via Windows SideShow), and a utility to schedule backups. Home Premium supports 10 simultaneous SMB peer-network connections (compared to 5 in Home Basic).[8] The version of Meeting Space included also allows for interaction (in Home Basic, one may only view meetings). This edition has functionality comparable to that of Windows XP Media Center Edition. Like Home Basic, it supports only one physical CPU, but multiple cores.[6] 64-bit Home Premium supports up to 16 GB of RAM.[7]

TBH Basic is fine...

EDIT - Fine for basic users - I wouldn't be seen dead using it but that's just me :P

"Similar to XP Home" don't think so-The only versions of Vista worth bothering with are Business and Ultimate,because you can change them to XP Pro. This laptop will support upto 4GB I would love to see you try to get it to support 16GB. You have got more of a chance to get business to start using Vista

are you arguing against yourself or am i missing the point?

But which is best. Windows Vista Home Basic or Home Premium?

There's only one way to find out.....(altogether now).......FIGHT!

Who gives a **** anyway. You both should get a Mac ;-)

This must be a typo? Because that is terrible.

no typo afaik

And yet it has an 8200M graphics card which is really the only separate addition over something like the Lenovo N500 from ebuyer at £339 recently. (out of stock at present)

Better deals elsewhere

I'd like something like this with HDMI (which this laptop has) so if there are better deals out there please point them out.

there was a good deal last week on currys or pcworld for £449. proper vista and 4Gb of RAM i would go for that before this. Its still about as a friend of mine bough one yesterday.

Just because it has '4gb of ram and _proper_ vista (lol)' doesn't make it a 'good deal' I'm afraid.

Ram and OS are the two easiest things to upgrade on Laptops - these aren't your biggest priority.

Decent but graphics lets it down.

so well said!!!!! :thumbsup:

regardless of what the laptop has vista is a killer on most things out there so putting XP Pro on something like this will really make a difference in performance! who gives a **** about a translucent theme...download the fuker on xp :thinking:

*sigh*

I take it your just blindly basing Vista for fun? I have a PC with Home Premium (x64 OEM) and when I was looking to buy Vista (to compliment my PC when I went from a single to a quad and had more power than I new what to do with) I took one look at Home Basic and wrote it off - I later got a laptop with Business on it and only recently found out that Basic and Business are suprisingly simple - i.e. the only difference that a home user would ever notice is the translucense.. which i'd turned off anyway.

Although i'd wait for a laptop with 7 on it - simply because 7 is so much better than Vista I think i'll actually buy a retail version so I can install it on all my PC's...

seems to me from all ive read on here digital tech are a con......... but you say you got your laptop was it through them? look at these links
