One other thing - just looked at the specs - it has an 'on-board' graphics chip. This means the RAM you think you have is shared (so a 4GB ram machine, with 1GB dedicated to graphics = 3GB available to Win 7 and applications)
Better to upgrade the graphics adapter to a ATI Radeon Sapphire 1GB (about £40) if you buy one, relatively cheap and plenty good enough for static graphic work.
