looks like a good computer. you will definitely want to upgrade the RAM to 2GB, as Vista requires a lot of RAM, and your graphics card uses shared memory. depending on your applications, you may want to consider a gfx card with its own memory. on tomshardware.com you can look into hardware you need to comfortably run Vista.

Looks like to me the thing has windows xp pro and not vista. Vista basic requires less than the ones with the new graphics on it. Either case 1gb is probably as little as you would want to go.
