PC requirements by using Visual Studio 2005

Hi,

I'am using visual studio 2005 team edition. Know I come to a preformance problem by using this tool. My current notebook is extreemly slow. This is what I have:
Acer Centrino Duo 1,66 mhz
3 GB intern memory
120 GB HD 5400rpm
256 shared videomemory

I must say that I develop under virtual machine, and we are developing a geographic information system, based on the GeoObjects from Intergraph.

maybe I must use a desktop pc for better performance, but then I lose my mobility.

Please can someone help me, to find a good system for software development using visual studio 2005
I use the VB.NET and ASP.NET tools.

>> So the specs from microsoft are not right?

Normally this specs are for the system run ok, but if you have to many application in memory, low disk space, unfraganted disk, registry problems, etc, the system stays slow for all application.

I use tuneup utilities 2007 to clean my machine and to check the programs in windows startup. You can check Start -> Run  and type msconfig. The uncheck the unwanted applications.

When you say you are developing under a virtual machine, do you mean you are running something like VMWare on the laptop, then doing your development under that system?  I have a similar setup on my laptop, and the virtual OS is always fairly slow when I am doing any testing or development work.  Usually I do the majority of my work on the normal OS, then use the virtual system for testing purposes.  If you are doing everything under a virtual OS, then it is going to affect the performance.  A faster hard drive would probably give you a noticeable increase in performance, but I don't know if it would be significant enough to be justified.
