    but didn't want to get to any specifics - it was already too long.  I always advise friend who ask to buy "more" than they think (up to a point) so their investment stays usable for longer. (Really not a fan of Intel graphics, for example and you can't ever have too much RAM!).

    That whole "vista ready" mess was a disaster across the board.  Vista turned out to be OK eventually, but that stuff with half-baked drivers on less-than-capable hardware left a bad taste in everyone's mouth.

    I know it's hard to time hardware, software and support eco-system for a product launch - but I hope Windows 8 makes it - it's pretty spectacular in spots.  I'd love to be able to afford a Surface Pro - no reason to get one, it just looks like it would be fun to play with. (not that I'm addicted to gadgets or anything ...)
