Had this rig for two years now, no upgrades, and it's holding up fairly well.
Not sure what to upgrade though, been thinking about getting a SSD when I have the cash

Does anyone know if there is a difference between the windows Vista scores and the Windows 7 scores?
Vista gives a maximum of 5.9 for each component, windows 7 gives a maximum of 7.9 . That's the main difference that I know of

I come bearing the gift of knowledge

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/What-is-the-Windows-Experience-Index

The base scores currently range from 1 to 5.9. The Windows Experience Index is designed to accommodate advances in computer technology. As hardware speed and performance improves, higher base scores will be introduced. However, the standards for each level of the index stay the same. For example, a computer scored as a 2.8 will remain a 2.8 unless you decide to upgrade the computer's hardware.

Weird that there's a difference in 2D and 3D graphics like that :\
Yeah really, if it were the other way around it'd make sense. Anyway I am very pleased with the performance of this lappy, feels just as fast as my desktop in Windows.

o.0

If you find a good OC for the RAM and CPU, you could very well have a base score of 7.9
A firmware update would be necessary for the SSD too but still, flipping hell.
