Yes it does work with 2Gb but I had to edit the file that looks for 4GB
But if your laptop will take 4GB I would fit more, as it does struggle,
mine is on XP,
also I have installed vida on my home pc to look up info and part numbers
home pc win 7 pro 12 core, 96GB mem, and that does not struggle,
but will not take that outside,

It's not even that.
There are free Windows 7 downloads available then you just buy a 7 Professional product key on eBay for about £4.
The only "problem" is time taken to set up and whether folk want the hassle.
Some have more, time, patience and inclination than others hence why I sell the ready setup laptops.
That’s interesting, I didn’t realise it would work out so cheap.

Thanks for all the advice folks, this has potentially saved me a fortune!
