The Vista is of course more modern and powerful, but is bogged down to the max with BS, IMO
(runs at like 30-50%% cpu and memory usage just sitting there with no extra programs running)
This Vista machine has crashed and gets borked all the time, causing untold frustration!
The XP machine is much more reliable, but only has 2GB of ram, (along with a pretty fast cpu, 2.93 GHz)
Any way to hack or modify that XP to make it accept more RAM? Or else to get this crazy Vista machine to use less resources at idle?
Short of that, is there any easy way to buy a more modern & powerful machine that does not come with Vista?
(because I have been looking and can't find one)
I make a lot of videos, just amateur stuff, but neither unit really makes the grade for that application.
I don't mind buying a new unit, or spending $$$ to upgrade, but I really don't even know what I am looking for, or whatever feasible options for upgrading the ones I have already are.
Can I get some expert opinions/advice please?
