comment Windows 7: Why is not all my memory usable?
Assuming the chipset allows for 4GB, it usually is a BIOS option to change the amount of memory dedicated to video. Edited that part, since in either case, it really is the chipset deciding this.

comment Best way to avoid OS Rot in Windows 7?
+1 I'd like to add that running Disk Cleanup and Defrag every couple months is usually enough to get rid of any "rot" not caused by installing lots of crapware on a computer, whether it's XP, Vista or 7.

comment Best way to avoid OS Rot in Windows 7?
OS Rot is entirely up to the user. I've ran an XP machine for 4 years here at work and it mostly works the same as day 1. I also don't install crap on it. Also, reinstalling Windows when you do get bogged down takes around an hour or 2 at the most, it's not a huge deal.

comment Windows Vista 32-bit to 7 64-bit Memory Upgrade
It sounds like the real question here isn't "Can I upgrade to 64-bit?" but rather "Is there any reason to?", mostly due to only having 3GB RAM.

comment Good torrent client with file selection needed
uTorrent runs great on mac. As far as requiring 10.5, it's rare to find any new software that works on older versions of the OS. Buying new OS upgrades is almost a requirement on Macs since backwards compatibility breaks more with each update. Irrelevant for this question though, Transmission requires 10.5 as well.

comment Will the newer of these processors be faster?
Usually even more intensive than flash-based games is HD Streaming content. But even my macbook with a 2 GHz Core 2 Duo had trouble with 720p content on Hulu, although I can't see that 720p content exists anymore on there.

comment How do I compare hardware on two machines?
Windows Experience is hardly a fair comparison. For example, most $150+ graphics cards will max out the graphics comparison. Benchmarking tools will give you a much more in-depth look of which one is better.

comment Can you install Windows 7 on Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, VirtualBox on a mac, or on Windows 7's Virtual PC?
@Molly: I know people running Windows 98 still. There have been more surprising things than 8 years of Win7.

Beware the advertisement-speak. Look to benchmarks to see actual results. Being told "up to 12% gains" means that in one case, they got 12% gains. Perhaps the rest of the time, it was 50% slower.
