How much?

To be hypercritical:
Small screen
Vista upgrade is a given - todays sales depend on it.
1 gB of RAM - will it be enough for Vista and what you want to do?
mediocre video
Is wireless built in? If not, don't bother.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
