My question is: should I upgrade my laptop, too?
It is currently running XP and the specs are...
Intel Celeron 2.4Ghz
768 MB of RAM ( , only can upgrade up to a gig)
60 GB HDD (Half fullish, I know how to partition)
Do you think I would take a large performance loss? (Aero disabled, duh!)
A related question: How can I start up office from a different Windows install on a different HDD\partition without it giving me a "Microsoft Word has not been installed for the current user" error? Wouldn't reinstalling it mean having two copies of Office on my poor HDD?
