550 MHz will be a bit slow for playing DivX/XviD movies, especially if they're high definition (beyond 640x480 approx). Presumably Windows is installed on it at the moment, so you can give the Windows version of VLC a test run. The RAM & HDD specs are fine. Provided the laptop's integrated video and networking is supported, you should be good to go. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
