Finally got my wife her PB.I know it's only a 5300 but it's really all she needs for now.Now that i have made a deal with Jordan for a modem i need advice on either to go with OS 8.1 or 8.6.It is the PB5300cs with only 24megs Ram.All she will be doing is checking her mail and some light surfing.I have 8.6 on their now seems okay but was not sure if 8.1 would speed it up some since it only has 24megs.I don't have OS 8.1 so what do you know from experience?

Thanks James

Yes i did do a custom install to slim it down, i was just wondering if 8.1 would still allow me the needed requirement for her needs and maybe give a system speed boost over 8.6.yes i do have OS 8.6 but like i had said i don't have 8.1 to try it out.So i don't feel like wasting my money on 8.1 if it's not going to be any advantage.

Thanks James
