    RE: Windows7, I have been using it and other than some crashes in games (and even those were pretty much limited to one game and the graphics settings test). Other than that my only issue has been with mapping a network drive, it never seems to reconnect at logon or save the password.

    i am able to get a copy of windows 7 32bit through my school for free.. would you recommend the 32bit version or should I just hold on to the 64bit vista that comes with my laptop? i'm not entirely sure of the differences between the 2 bit versions

    I am unsure of what you mean, "through my school for free" since it's being beta tested and is free to everyone available to sign up. I would suggest you keep both and dual boot since come summer 09 W7 should stop working if it's the beta. Plus it would allow you to compare side by side.

    Back to the original question, I am running a full HD 22inch monitor via VGA, and looks great. It's just as good as my brother's DVI connection on a monitor that's almost the same as mine.
