Re: Laptops -dedicated to music only?

I've never noticed this on a newer system with Intel duo core and 
RAM. No difference.  Maybe on an older laptop, but not the newer ones. 
kick ass without optimization. Just look at the processes running in the 
background of a new machine, and see how much memorh and CPU  it is really 
using to run th OS...not much.
