My mother needs a new computer after years of frustrated dealings with a major vendor which shall not be named. As I have been more than pleased with System76 and their Pangolin Performance laptop (which I am currently using to compose this message), I have recommend that she use System76 computers from now on.
She does not wish to use Windows Vista or 7 and wants to use Ubuntu Linux for everyday tasks (i.e. checking e-mail, listening to music, etc). However, being a mechanical engineer, my mother needs to run Windows XP in order to use the following programs:
Does anyone know if the aforementioned programs will run smoothly within Virtualbox on the following System76 laptop configuration?
Core i7-620M Processor ( 32nm, 4MB L3 Cache, 2.66GHz )
8 GB – DDR3 1066 MHZ 2 DIMMs
320 GB 7200 RPM SATA II
I will post more questions if they come up; until then, my thanks in advance to anyone who can help answer this question!
