Packard Bell Laptop Which Came With Vista :(

I sometimes wonder about laptop manufacturers as the other day mate gave me his laptop to fix which had been infected with System Security 2009 and Internet Anti Virus

So downloaded Malware Bytes which removed both problems but i sat there wondering why the laptop was still running sooooooooooooo slow which after removing some infections windows is never the same so had a look at the spec to find laptop only has 512MB of memory to run Vista Home Premium which in my eyes is taking the Peeeeeeeeeee as you need at least a 1GB to keep Vista happy

So why do manufacturers make laptops which are not up to the job

PS off to install XP

Just like to add if you want to upgrade the memory of a Packard Bell EASYNOTE use link below which shows the page for Crucial Memory

Photos are made up from about 6 shots taken with my Fuji Finepix F40fd and then photo merged with Adobe Photoshop which makes making Panoramas pretty easy, if you want to use free software try Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE)
