I have a mid range laptop with Vista Premium. I didn't really want vista but it was pre-installed and decided to stay with it.
Anyway, my specs are:
 . Acer Aspire 5720Z
 . Vista Premium 32bit
 . 160GB Hard Drive
 . Intel Pentium Core Duo T2370 1.73Ghz
 . Intel Grpahics Chipset 965

My problem is that while I can play games pretty average and run photoshop and watch videos at the same time real zippy, I can't perform a simple [Windows Vista] Slide Show in "my pictures" with simple fade effect. IT LAGS REAL BAD. I've tried searching the net and other forums to see if other people have the same problem but can't find anything. Laptop is only 1 and a half weeks old. Anyone got any thoughts on this? Could it be that my graphics just aren't good enough? They play newish games pretty well and play new games ok-ish.

do you mean it lags when you click on the slideshow button from the picture viewer window? or actually during the slideshow? i have found mine does lag a bit. especially when you first click the slideshow button and it has to load up. hopefully vista sp1 will fix this issue.

i regularly read newly released manga and because its so new its usually not high quality which means i need it as big as possible in order for it to be readable which is why i use slideshow. but its sooooo slow! definately need sp1 to fix this. anyone using sp1 and noticed a difference?
