I upgradied my RAM from 256MB to 1GB, just for "The Aero Experience" ... at a cost of 74.99 from Packard Bell.
I have a Packard Bell Easynote S4935, and running Vista fine, without problems.
THE ONE REALLY HUGE PROBLEM ... IS NO AERO SUPPORT ON 915/910 cards, THEREFORE NO FLIP 3D, LIVE PREVIEWS, DVD MAKER OR MOVIE MAKER SUPPORT. As you can see i am LIVID!! at spending 220 plus 75 on RAM, checking whether my card is supported for Vista first ...
AND THEN ... not being able to use, the WHOLE Aero Experience, and DVD and Movie Maker.
I Contacted Microsoft, about this, and they has issued an official return request, so I could get a refund of Vista if I wanted. BUT THATS NOT THE POINT. I want Windows Vista. AND I WANT AERO TOO.
Especially with my Laptop being only 6 Months old. (NOT EVEN A YEAR!)
RELEASE THE XPDM or WDDM Drivers. Otherwise, you will lose out on alot of business, from THAUSAND of 915/910 Chipset users.
