I can do all the CPU intensive windows task I can imagine at the same time and CPU usage never exceeds 25%. Ex: crazy task switcher, which playing a video that'* being displayed IN the crazy animations, and with tons of apps open, etc.
I tried to install it on my Dell which has better specs. Its a Inspiron with centrino 1.86ghz 1 gig of ram 80 gb hd and 256mb GeForce 6800 video and it said it could not install...lol
