    Doesn't premium ready also require them to have a hybrid hard drive? Are they even available?

    Hybrid hard drives are not a requirement for "Premium Ready" certification.

    After you do too many hardware upgrades and can not activate Vista you will at least still have a pretty box to look at. :eek:

    I thought I saw somewhere that you will get 10 activations with Vista, and if you do a format/re-install that doesn't count towards it. I think the Hard Drive has to be replaced or some other serious upgrade for it to count, something like that.

    Format / re-install not count?

    If format and re-install does not count then it seems you could setup multiple PC's with the same hardware and use one copy of Vista for them all.

    I read that (and I can't remember the link), you can pretty much change everything but the HDD and the motherboard before it requires you to reactivate - no wonder I had to activate XP so much (I'm very good at breaking HDDs). :(
