I just wanted to let everyone know, in case you're planning to buy a new computer, that Temple recommends us to stay with XP. The specs aren't up on the website yet, but the woman I corresponded with said that while Vista will work for regular classroom stuff, if your computer has a problem during an exam and you're running Vista, they won't be able to help you. She said you may be able to handwrite the remainder of the exam if you have time left, but from the sounds of it, if the problem happens at the end of the exam, you're pretty much SOL.
I think I'm getting my new computer pretty soon (probably before they post the official recommendations), which is why I asked them. But I think this is pretty important to know sooner than July!
