It set me back some € 1400, but it's so worth it! It blows holes in the load times. If this thing had wheels, it would tear the asphalt off of highways.
BodyShop, which is very hard for most people to get started, opens in less than a minute!
SimPE loads in less than a minute too, and whatever I click within the program, the results come up lightning fast.
Yes, Lee, that's 16 GB of RAM. Originally it came with 8 GB, but that seemed rather insufficient to me
I've never used Vista, so I don't know from personal experience how bad it could be. But I must admit, whereas the general concensus is that ME was total crap, I preferred it over XP. So I'm probably rather weird.
