How Many Of you Can run Aero?
I want to see how many people can and cant so just say if your computer can handle aero (128mb Vram) or if it cant :-)

works fine on my p/c, my (older) 2nd p/c and my (even older) test p/c

works like a dream, RC2 here on my current acer aspire with 64Mb Dedicated RAM and some shared.

I have rc2 still not sure exacly what aero is. if its seeing the mini sized windows at an angle nearly side on then yes i get it. otherwise not sure.but cannot see anything graphics wise thats says wow unless i am missing something.
i have 1gig of ram & nvidia 6600 with 256 ram so meet the spec

I imagine my PC will just about be able to cope with Aero ... 2GB Ram, 2xNvidia 7900 GTX in SLI ...

Yes mine also, 2x Nvidia 6800 GTs in Sli

Vista RC1 here, Toshiba laptop, ATI M/Radeon x300 64mb onboard + 256mb of system memory (of 1gb). No problem running Aero - though I'm not sure if later builds are more picky.

are happy with Aero, as are my two laptops.

  powerless 20:57 24 Oct 2006

Yeah; ATi x800.

Doesn't in Parallels, but that's a different story.

Are you 2 both getting the full aero experience with 64mb of video ram? Is everything transparent? when i said does your computer run aero i ment the full experience with atleast 128mb of v ram, but if yours is working fully with 64mb of vram how come mine isnt. Is it something to do with pexel shader 2.0

Please Reply i realy want to know about this.

can I ask the question the other way - what does it look like if you can't get the benefit of the aero effect?
