Unless you have integrated graphics that I have never heard of, you will be able to run Vista and all it's security features etc, but you won't be able to use the "eye candy" as in Aero/glass without a quality dedicated graphics card:)
i've been using an old dell dimension l866r desktop for a while now and i'm planing on getting a new dell notebook. i have been seriously considering getting a dell inspiron e1405 but i have been debating between the e1405 and e1505. i would prefer the smaller size and weight of the e1405 but i'm wondering if anyone out there has personally used an e1405 and can give me an opinion on the graphics capabilities of the e1405 with its integrated graphics. on the dell.com website it says that even with the integrated graphics the e1405 should run windows vista INCLUDING windows aero without any problems. my question is, is this true? will i be able to run windows vista with windows aero on my e1405?
The system i am interested is:
