Quote from: OingoBoingo on April 04, 2006, 03:19:55 PMJust FYI - Vista will work on the majority of the late model (read Centrino) XP laptops out there - some things, like the glass feature, will have to be disabled on some models. Without the glass feature, why bother? (Imagine a smiley here.)Seriously, though, my husband's testing apps on Vista now and is getting conflicting stories on what hardware (video card) and RAM requirements will actually be - he's heard as high as 512 mb video RAM to run the rolodex/glass thingie at a healthy clip (and that's what the testing machines are running.) Also, when I called Dell to ask about setups (especially docks/port replicators) the guy could not tell me whether any of their current laptops will comfortably run Vista. I know it's not going to be out until next year and probably won't be stable for months, but I like the screenshots I've seen and some of the things I've read so I do plan to use it and I assume it'll be well before I graduate.(And by the way, I'm also a fan of IBMs and our old (ca. 2000) Thinkpad in particular. If it had a better screen resolution I think I'd be happy to use it in school, at least for a little while.)

the vaio tx series looks sick! anybody have any experience with those little things? my concern, besides the price tag, would be how durable it will be? would that little computer stand up to three years of law school?
