David: You need RAM! Drop in a 2GB stick to see a remarkable improvement.
Be sure you put it in the primary bank and move your 1GB stick to the other
slot. I recently made a pdf of a Word file that was 1152 pages with 184
embedded graphics averaging 40k and 300+ tables. It took under a minute on
my 64-bit Windows 7 Dell XPS 8100 i7-870 with 8MB L3 cache and 8GB RAM, dual
750GB SATA 2.0 drives with RAID 0.
What I really like about this machine is that it is sooo quiet you can
barely tell its running. It sits on top of my desk so that's important to
me.

===============
Hi All

I'm being asked to justify my request for computer/software upgrade so I am
hoping my colleagues out there can give me an idea about whether my creation
of pdf files is tardy.

I'm running Win XP (SP3) on a 3.4Ghz machine with 1 Mb RAM. Applications
are MS Word 2003 and Acrobat 8. All 32-bit of course

My document is 123 pages and it has 264 linked .png images all with an
average size of 70-80 Kb.
Acrobat is set Basic standard with no bookmarks or links, no Word cross-ref
features and no heading bookmarks.

And this takes 7min 32 sec from clicking [Start] to seeing new opened pdf
file.
