The transfer rate isn't all there is to access'. I suppose you could install Vista on it, but the only way to know would be to try. It'll depend on Vista allowing it, along with the ability of your BIOS to accept it. Then the issue of bootability will occur - and you may have to boot from the laptop hard drive in order to access the Vista on the external drive. Then there's the issue of Vista's performance on the laptop through the USB drive.
All in all it'd be easier to install a larger hard drive in the laptop. I run Vista Ultimate on my Toshiba M45 laptop with an 80 gB hard drive and 1 gB of RAM (and some performance tweaks) without any issues.
