Actually I am shocked how well W7 runs on it.

Aero would not run very well with Vista, no problems on W7

MSI Global ? Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more

You are correct it does everything I need it to do..but laugh anyway, it is the best medicine!

Yup, they got it right on the second release, Vista being the first

My WEI score is 1.0 on my Lat D600, W7 runs well on it also, but no Aero.

MY WEI - I didn't know how to copy/paste the screen shot, but this was my score: Processor: 7.4 Memory: 7.4 Graphics: 7.8 Gaming Graphics: 7.8 Primary Hard Disk: 5.9 Overall Score: 5.9 That's a shame. Why is the Primary Hard Disk so slow? I have a 1 TB 7200RPM Hard Drive..... Wouldn't it get rated better?

5.9 is the highest score you can get for a single spinning Hard Drive.

To get higher HD scores, youll need to run a Solid State Drive or,
run a RAID array of mechanical drives for a slight improvement

Seems like a lot of people get 5.9 due to the fact that most PC's come fitted with 7,200RPM drives, I think to get higher values from this you need SSD hard disk, but we all know how much those are.

How old is the computer, have you used lots of space up and have you defragged on reg. basis?

Edit: Oh well, I was hoping you could increase it by cleaning up stuff or defragging, but I guess the WEI is its own level. The outside of the disc is moving faster due to the diamater, a 3.5 is faster than a 2.5 disk. (they have the same RPM) so a defrag could help. Oh well.

A WEI component score of 5.9 is the highest you will achieve on a standard electro-mechanical hard disk. To gain a higher score for this category, you will need to use a Solid-State drive.

Hi there. I just got the computer actually. It's a XPS 9000 with the Intel Core i7 920 2.6GHZ Processor, 6GB Memory, 1TB HD, ATI Radeon 5870 1GB Video.... It's pretty darn good though.

My question is, if I order a SSD drive, (is that 10000 ot 15000 RPMS?), that will make it that much faster, or is it not worth it??
