We currently have the Acer VT1000s with Q965 chipsets and are looking at W7. I'm not sure whether its a limitation of the chipset (as 965s are pretty old now, no?) or a driver issue but Aero on W7 just doesn't seem stable on these machines. Just for some information, they have both DVI and VGA output and we are trying to run them on dual 22" monitors but combination 22" and 19" is still quite bad. Example: the desktop window manager service will constantly turn off and Aero is no longer on.
Are Q965s just not *strong* enough to run dual monitors with Aero or are Intel working on a better driver for Windows 7 and this chipset?
Personal opinion: Are Q965s just not *strong* enough to run dual monitors with Aero
