Windows Vista performance
We have received three LENOVO X61 TABLET computers running Windows Vista Business. We would like to tune them for best performance. They each have 2Gig of RAM. We have heard that the addition of a SD card or USB flash drive, when added to a Windows Vista system can implement a new Windows Vista feature called ReadyBoost. ReadyBoost serves as a memory cache and since flash memory access is much faster than hard drive access, the overall system performance improves. ReadyBoost also works in conjunction with Windows SuperFetch. The Windows Vista feature of SuperFetch actually "learns" what applications are used the most and actively loads those application executable files into memory before use. The use of SuperFetch allows for faster application loading over a period of time. We have examined the StartUp List, and see that Windows Vista loads lots of services into memory upon booting, and it is possible some of these services are not needed. These services and features, when removed or kept from loading, will improve system performance, as fewer Windows Vista service drivers are loaded. Does anyone have any other suggestions ?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I use a 2 Gig SD card on my laptop as a ReadyBoost device and it does appear to help quite a bit.

Removing unneeded applications from starting at boot will help any computer run faster no matter what operating system you run.
