That could be a nice T-shirt - "Not Vista Ready" ;^)

The upgrades for a Vista Ready PC are impressive - no integrated
graphics (as a practical matter, I think *some* are good enough), a Gig
of RAM, and a GHz or better CPU (this is for the Vista Premium
experience) - the upside is nice, robust laptops are now easily
available at bog-box retailers (Best Buy, CompUSA, etc.)... Now, if they
could just unbundle the O/S from the hardware...

I had a hard time looking for a Core 2 Duo laptop with 2 Gig RAM,  nice
CPU (with 2x 2 Meg cache) and discrete video card until I decvided to
punt and get my Mac Book Pro... No regrets, and I especially like the
battery life compared with most mainstream "Vista Ready Laptops"...
