no, vista doesnt suck.
1. acer made your computer.
2. you have a turion core.
how big is the source file you are pulling clips from? if its more than 3 gigs, it is too big to write to memory, so it is using your virtual memory on your hard drive to write from. thats slow.
\before you may have been using small source files that could fit in memory.
also, if you use an external that connects with USB, your export and read times will be slow because USB is slower than RAM.
