[access-uk] Re: NOVATECH COMPUTERS

Hi Steve,

It does see the 4GB just complains not all of it is usable.

It's nice though that today 64Bit is pretty much common place.  Are JFW still 
making a distinction between 32/64 in pricings?  Whoever's considering buying a 
new machine and is thinking of Windows may need to consider this.

Regards,
Barry.

Hi Barry,

Yep, I'd say that's about right.

All the best

Steve

Hi,

Sorry to be picky but they normally dont' see anything usable above 3.75GB.

Regards,
Barry.

Hi Mo,

Sorry, but 32 bit versions of Windows do not address memory above 4GB.

All the best

Steve

Hi Carol. Here are my views on your questions.

In terms of speed, you may have had computers either that are old 
running windows XP that have been upgraded to windows vista/7, or a 
computer running windows Vista. There may not necessarily be anything 
wrong with your computer, its probably the operating system. Often, a 
memory upgrade or upgrading to a solid state drive can very dramatically 
improve performance with huge cost savings. I recently upgraded a 
friends computer running a quad core processor from 5 years ago, and 
windows boots within 20 seconds and that's windows7 ultimate, the most 
resource hungry version of windows 7! Windows 8 should run fine on any 
windows7 certified PC. an intel Dual core with 4GB of ram minimum should 
be perfectly sufficient, with AMD i'd recommend going for a quad core 
CPU for maximum performance. My field is computer hardware, so i'd be 
more than happy to help you out in sourcing a computer, or performing an 
upgrade for you. Obviously i can not directly advertise these services 
on this list. I do not use Novatech. I have used them in the past but 
find ebuyer.com much better value and they have much more choice. Then 
there's the custom build option. A PC tailered to your specific 
requirements could cost you as little as £200 and still keep you in 
excellent stead for years to come. Personally, all my computers for my 
self and for clients are running 32bit versions of windows7. Again, 
people will argue that you need 64bit for computers with more than 4GB 
of ram. this isn't always the case. manufacturers provide support for 
ram up to 16GB for windows7 32bit. again, this was the case on a 
friend's laptop. The laptop was upgraded from 4GB to 8GB and is running 
a lot faster running windows7 32bit ultimate edition and yes, windows 
sees and utilises all 8 GB of ram.

Freedom Scientific do charge more i think for what they call the 
professional version of jaws. That's for certain editions of windows i 
think its for windows7 ultimate, professional and enterprize/business. 
Standard is for home premium and basic i think. I would stick to 
windows7. Windows8 has a horrible interface and has been slated as the 
next windows vista by a lot of people. When i watched a video by GW 
micro, they were describing it and it sounds awful. The settings menus 
are convoluted and you have to enter multiple menus to get to where you 
want to go to the point where you forget where you've been. I certainly 
won't be installing it.

As for windows7 editions, there's not much between them all. Windows7 
ultimate as the name suggests is the ultimate edition with all bells and 
wistles. The enterprize/business editions are geared obviously towards 
enterprize/business functionality so provide support for use cases where 
you're connecting to domains/servers across a corpret network. Windows7 
home premium is more likely the version you'll find on your PC. this is 
geared more towards home users and provides a nice balance between 
functionality and features. Again, i'd recommend sticking to 32bit. 
While most applications may support 64bit, some drivers and anti virus 
products as well as applications do not work well on 64bit versions of 
windows. Clients have specifically asked me to downgrade to 32bit 
because for example their scanner drivers do not work on 64bit, but work 
fine on 32bit. for example, if you have a scanner that worked fine on 
XP, on a 32bit version of windows7 you could use it because XP emulation 
can be used in realtime to make the driver think you're running windows 
XP when you're really running windows7. on a 64bit install, this becomes 
a lot harder because the original driver is 32bit, not 64bit. Sorry if 
i've confused you!

If i can help in any other way please don't hesitate to get in touch. 
I'd be more than happy to give you a ring or converse with you off list 
to find you the best deal.

all the best,

Mo.
