I’m getting close to being comfortable with my new notebook computer. It’s quite the performer, what with fast multi-processing, a speedy hard drive and 8 GB RAM.

Hi Steve What about the operating system you are using in your new note ? Is it windows 7 64 bits ?

I agree with you about the power of thew new notebooks. I´m using a Core i7 second generation with 8Gb Ram and my "chest" or "utility belt" is composed by Mysql, Postgre, OpemQM and mongoDB for database storage and Talend Open Studio, Talend Open Profiler, Talend MDM and PDI for data quality, MDM, ETL and integration.

I´m using this in a notebook in the past 6 months, and my first challenge whas to USE all the memory i have. After some configuration to java and the databases engines i now can manage my 200m registers and use all the 8 gb available.

To make it more confortable i´m usign a 2 Tb externar hard drive from WD with 7200 rpm and USB 3.0, its fast as a lightining.

Best regards. CYA.

CYA --

Yes, I'm using Windows 7, 64 bit.

I like your product portfolio. Any special stats or visualization packages?

Regards, Steve
