Yea, the newer GPS programs have a lot of geewiz add ons that really drag your system down. I couldn't run the rand mcnally thing on my laptop that is twice as fast.
Any type of 3-d program is out of there.
But honestly I can run the StreetAtlas RWE, Netstumber, and winamp2.xx (no eyecandy) all at the same time, a little stutter if I change the zoom on the map display...that is it.
I wish it was a 233 or faster, but it works good enough for now.
