1) Ableton Live CPU Meter % - 27
2) Laptop/Desktop? Make/Model - Toshiba Qosmio F10 Laptop
3) Operating System - WinXP MCE
4) CPU Make Model and Speed - Intel Dothan 2 Ghz
5) Amount of Ram / Speed of Ram (if you know) - 1GB DDR333 PC2700
6) Soundcard (Stock or add on?, usb/firewire/pci ?) - Stock Soundmax with Asio4all
7) Hard Disk Drive Speed (if you know) - 5400 rpm 8 MB cache

this puppy does everything for me so it ain't exactly a clean install, nor is it overly optimised. it could run faster i think, and i might try and do an alternate services setup with all the networking and unimportant stuff turned off.

[EDIT - dumped a bunch of rubbish toshiba startup processes and decided to give bblean (an altenative shell to windows explorer) a go, and got the max cpu down to 25%. can probably work on killing a few more things yet, but so far so good...]

Why do you think you can speak for everybody?
Why is it OK to bash "regular" users, but not AJ? ( no offense AJ ), nobody should be above reproach, and everybody occasionally rubs somebody the wrong way. People telling another member to leave is bullshit though, you don't own anything here, end of story.

I think it would be wise to wait until a few updates before starting a new test, but what the hell? This place has no moderators, there are definitely times when that is not so good of a thing I think....

AJ, you personally should realize that you have gone MUCH farther than retard in personal attacks against other people on forums, I seem to remember a hung pet avatar over at OSAudio? Hmmmm? :wink:
