Now would be a great time for a period correct vista machine before everything sky rockets in price on ebay.
Period correct as in massively underpowered like the crappy systems that were sold by all the large OEMs as being "Vista ready"?
Oh yeah.. let's make a bunch of low end Celeron machines with 1GB of RAM and only onboard video and sound and a super crappy 5400rpm hard drive.
Nope, I'm not bitter about having to do warranty work on those pieces of trash.
Vista was fine after SP1 (before SP1 there were huge problems with file transfer speeds and other crappy bugs) and I used it right after it was released.
That being said, I really see no point in building a Vista machine at all.
Can somebody give me at least one really good reason why a Vista machine would be useful at all as a retro machine?
