I installed office and some basic programs quickly. I started at 1:00 and was done by 2:00. Only loaded a video driver, everything else detected on it its own. The machine is a Dell Latitude D630 with 4GB of ram and Core2 2.4GHz.
Only problem I ran into was with my Cisco VPN Client. I only needed to install the latest client version available from cisco.com, http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/secursw/ps2308/ I only had version 5.0.03 installed initially and the latest version is 5.0.06.0110. The old version worked, but the split-tunneling appeared to not work. After I uninstalled the old version and installed the new 5.0.06, I had no problem connecting to my VPN network and the internet. (Spilt-Tunneling has to be configured on your router as well. Our is configured for split-tunneling, but the old client appeared to no longer work with Windows 7)
Update: 5 hours and 26 minutes of run time isn't too bad either...
