comment Interpretation of the bytes stored in the memory of Little Endian machine?
1) I don't understand why you care about this - at all, 2) this would vary wildly based on a huge number of factors such as processor, server architecture, interfaces used, OS etc., 3) it would have little or no impact on performance either way and 4) I STILL don't know what you would care?

Presumably you mean VMWare Workstation 7.1.0? VMWare is a company not a product.

By the way, this did help a little - think we might have to do the whole 'transfer everything to a new file' thing I guess, cheers anyway.

You're right, I could have been clearer sorry, I mean 'actually make the .xls file smaller' sorry - as opposed to just using winzip/7zip 'externally'

comment What Virtualization Servers support Windows Clients with Direct X?
Never tried it (yet) but this article states v4 DOESN'T support directx (kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/…) and while VMW View 5 supports directx is isn't actually doing that via a real GPU, it just emulates it - certainly Fusion and Workstation support it but that's not what you want.

comment 3D screen for working with non 3D apps
There's two use-cases for the 3D in that laptop, one is indeed for 3D Blu-Rays, the other is for 3D games, there's increasing numbers of games that support 3D right out of the box.
