I've recently yanked out an old laptop of mine, a HP pavillion DV5000, to use for multi boxing Vanguard now that it is free to play.
This particular laptop is complete junk, with a 1.60 GHz CPU and only 1 gig of Ram, not to mention i dont even know if it has a devoted video card or if it is an integrated piece of junk as well. I won't be paying to upgrade anything, obviously, since the tech is so very far behind.
It is currently running Vista (iknorite?) and i am looking to get outta that. I can go either to windows 7 ultimate, or i can go back to XP.
My question is which to go for? With windows 7, I can slap in one of the fifty 16 gig usb drives i have lying around and use it for that Turbo boost thing to add some memory, or i can use XP for it's low resource usage. I know next to nothing about the USB memory thing, so don't laugh at me if that is the clear winner.
The system as is is very laggy, taking 5-15 seconds just to open up firefox.
I don't need stable FPS, pretty graphics, or even sound since i am simply using it to mash buttons for the second character. I know it's possible, because i used to use this same laptop to dual box Shaiya. I'm just trying to squeeze all i can outta it. SO, any advice is appreciated!
