    NO, Are you sure you aren't talking about RAM (sometimes referred to as "memory") ???

    1.99GBs of RAM would be perfect for running Windows Vista.

    Windows XP = 600MB or .6GBs

    Microsoft Office = 400MBs or .4GBs

    1 DVD movie is 4.7GBs or roughly twice the size of the Hard drive you listed.

    Windows Vista takes atleast 2-4GBs

    Windows also needs about 1GB of free space as a temporary spot to swap files back and forth.

    Laptops from 4 years ago had 40GB hard drives.

    Then about 2 years ago 80GB hard drives.

    NOW, 160 to 320GBs is common

    So either you are talking about RAM and not hard drive OR you are dealing with a laptop soooo old, it's not worth using.

    That really depends on what you are talking about.

    If you are talking Memory, that is barely adequate to run windows vista at a decent pace, it's more than enough to run windows XP, Linux, etc.

    If you are talking free hard drive space, NO... you need to delete some files and free up more room on the drive.

    Try running Cleanup! from http://www.stevengould.org to clean up some drive space.

    I guess it would depend on what you are using it for. My Vaio is 2 GB and it is plenty for my needs.

    It depends on what your doing but generally no. That's very tight.

    If your looking at an Asus EeePC type device you might want to consider he Apple iTouch. If it can fit your needs it's a little cheaper, more powerful, and a little bigger!

    If it's RAM youre talking about, then it's good,

    No..... You can buy flash drives with more space than that laptop HD.
