    Anybody have an opinion of the resource usage.
    Am using V5 free and am considering V5 Pro
    The main difference to me is the sandbox 'option'
    Sounds a good thing, but at what cost to performance.

    Cheers

    I've been using AIS on XP SP3 since release in January. The performance hit is tiny and not an issue for me. There have been some early stability issues but I don't use it all that often.

    Why not indulge in a 30-day trial?

    It's the botheration factor:)
    tjram switches almost weekly it seems, obviously dedicated to continuous testing:D

    I try to learn from early users - lazy

    Sandbox performance is good. There is only a delay while you open the application ( matter of 1-2 seconds). After that I don't notice any delays.

    The best thing to do like it was advised already is to use the offered trial.
