    Default New laptop with vista!

    Been and bought myself a new laptop today as my old one finally give up the ghost. It wasnt wifi'd so I bought a usb wifi stick I put that in 4 weeks later it decided to kill its own usb ports and the wifi stick then proceeded every 30 seconds to tell me it found new hardware but it didnt really stupid thing! grrrrr. so i saved so pennys and bought this now at first i was abit hesitant on buying a laptop with vista but so far im suitably impressed. taking abit of getting used to as things are set out abit strange like the gadget bar on the side and stuff but so far very impressed!

    anybody share thoughts or tips and tricks???

    Sorry to be negative, but i have a Dell Laptop with Vista on it and absolutely hate it! I am on the verge of getting it put back to XP.

    Nothing is compatible with it, you are forever downloading software upgrades.

    The amount of boxes that appear saying such and such isnt compatible are unreal, and thats just on start up!

    Sorry but i wish i had waited a couple of years before getting Vista.

    really well luckily its just a secondary computer I have a desktop pc aswell which i use to download music/videos and view porn etc lol

    so hopefully nothing will go through this thats too bad. I will only be surfing doing some accounts and emailing and doing some desktop publishing etc. hopefully microsoft will get all updates and stuff sorted out quite quickly.

    which vista package have you got, the guy convinced me into the premium and to be honest im a kid and lied the flying windows effect thingy lol.

    Yes, there is a lack of software and some drivers at the moment but it will soon catch up - its better if you stick to the main players that we're involved in the development (eg HP, Dell etc)

    Vista isn't that bad once you get used to it, but it does need plenty of ram and a fast processor helps.

    Its going to get very hard in the next few months to get machines with XP as the supply is about to stop so unfortunately we're all going to have to get used to it.
