That is very true...HD space and in this case might be its saving grace...

If I can get it down to atleast 5.5GB...7 will be a go
How about 1.2 gig? You could add some of these presets back in with your budget:

I was going to force her to use a microSD for her songs (4GB should be good enough)...same difference I suppose

Check this out -> stefanRTR's Win Integrator

That is the closet I have seen to a vLite replacement and looks to be so with a little more time

If you want to use it you have to use .Net Framework 4 (don't ask...) -> http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...ng=en#filelist

There must be a newer driver for the video, even a beta.

That screen res is unacceptable on any machine.

Must be distorted?

Aero always defaults off on weaker rigs, doing a favor.
