Acer TM8210 Running Windows 7

Acer TM8210 Running Windows 7

Purchased in Oct 2006, my Acer TM8210-6880 came with Windows XP SP2. I tried installing Vista 64-bit and 32 bit on it, but the performance just wasn’t as good as it was on XP with ATI (now AMD)’s MobilityRadeon X1600 driver. Now that Windows 7 is officially out, I decided to give it another try.

Since I wasn’t able to find a 64-bit optimized graphics driver, I decided to installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit.  I gotta say that after additional drivers (for OrbiCam, SmartCard Reader, etc) have been installed, Windows 7 certainly runs pretty smoothly with the polished Aero look.  Here are some screen shots:
