It's still got plenty of medium use life left in it.
I increased the RAM to 4gb years ago. Installed win7 too, only to find (after exhaustive searches) that win7 drivers for the TV function, the built-in webcam, and several other bits of this computer just don't exist. Luckily, there was a restore partition and I was able to go back to factory-fresh Vista. And voila, everything works again.
Back to the topic at hand, though - the benefit of upgrading to this Asus. Aside from gaining a touch screen, Win7, and USB 3.0, wouldn't this be significantly faster?
