Early Testers Hit Vista Beta 2 Snags

This is hardly unexpected in a beta testing cycle.

What surprised me is how Vista is so hard on notebook battery life and how notebooks seem to run very hot because so much of the graphics are off-loaded to the GPU, which is usually not very well cooled in a notebook form factor. It is fair to ask if this should limit notebook owners upgrading to Vista and instead holding off until they buy new kit, which will presumably be better suited to the task.
