a few days ago, I formatted my HP pavillion dv6870ej laptop (core 2 duo 2.8, 3GB, SATA 320GB drive, Nvidia 8400M)

it came with vista and performance was really good.
I installed win 7 rc (I need it to be a legit copy, and the 1-year evaluation offer wins my attention)
I updated all drivers and ran a radersync..
I was expecting a slimmer, faster OS.
but Win 7, while acceptable still feels a little behind vista, most notable is the application launch time, office 2007 word or excel takes about twice the time to launch on Windows 7 than on vista.
GUI also feels a little bit slow, while still responsive it does not have the screaming fast feeling I had with vista.
my WEI scores are 5.1 - 5.8 in all categories, except for display , aero graphics is 2.2 (!!!), and gaming graphics is 5.1
could any of you point me to what could be wrong ? what can't I see the performance boost and why is it slower than vista ?
