I am running 64bit Revit on a 64 bit vista machine with 8 gigs of ram and the lag thing is driving me crazy. It is mentioned all over the internet, but I haven't found anyone with an answer yet. I am running the same software on a 32 bit windows 7 machine and there is absolutely no lag at all with the commands and menus. I have tried turning off any kind of windows frills and running only what is absolutely necessary in the background and the lag never changes. My file isn't even very large yet...only about 3.5 megs. What gives with the stupid command lag?

 Along with the stupid ribbon issue, this makes me regret recommending Revit to my company.

I too am running a M6400, (although not the Covet edition) - specced with a 2.66ghz C2D P8800, 12GB RAM & a 1GB 3700M - running XP Pro 64, and 2010, and to tell you the truth, I'm actually pretty horrified by the performance.

 Back at the office in the UK I was running a E6700 w/ 3.5GB RAM & a 256MB FireGL card of some description - admitadly I was still using 2009 back then, on smaller models; but having been out in Oz on work placement with this massively higher-specc'd machine, I've been doubting 2010's coding efficiency...

 I suffer incredible lags on some of the most "basic" of operations - and it's frustrating beyond belief. A lot of the time I'm prepared to put it down to networking - but occasionally when I go remote and take local copies of model files to work/show - I'm not seeing massive jumps in performance when reviewing structure & architecture models. Suffice to say I'm not looking forward to getting the M&E models.

Beyond the raising the virtual memory "trick" (which shouldn't be needed surely as I have physical in abundance) Are there any other methods known to squeeze the very last drop of system performance? It's impractical that I should have to close Outlook down during a working day.

Erik...on the issue of the delay, I experienced the same problem for about a month. It was driving me crazy. I called several techies and no one could figure it out. We threw 4 more gigs of ram at it, a more powerful video card and nothing seemed to help. Then one day I defragged the computer and it Revit perked right back up just as if it was running on a brand new machine. It seems that a Revit project is composed of a ton of files that as you work on it just get put all over the place. I now defrag at least once a week or more often if it starts acting sluggish.
