I have had a few fake tech support calls myself, but what really worries me is the number of calls "un-technical" people have told me about this and the lack of awareness

Had constant issues with installing or updating drivers, ran incredibly inefficiently, taskbar looked ugly and generally it would never run games well enough. Been running Windows 7 Ultimate ever since and will never go back to anything else.:-)
00 GHz, 4 GB DDR2 RAM (64bit Vista), 2x Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS (SLI), Hi-def 32' Samsung LCD 1080p (1920 x 1080 native res). Looking to upgrade a little. Specifically the GPU needs renewing. Seein' if I can't get this bad boy to run latest games at 30+ FPS. Thanks!
I'm actually sort of impressed that it didn't happen sooner. Another surprising thing, I never got a BSOD using Vista.
The two netbooks I have played with that run Vista (Acer AS1410 and Acer 751h) run it very well. Are there any other netbooks that run vista really well or at least decently? I mainly want one with vista so i get the windows 7 in October. Sub $400 would be ideal too. P.S. I do realize if the pc runs vista it isn't a netbook by MS's definition. But if it is sub $400, has no optical drive, and is really small i think its a netbook.
