    It is cool, didn't know they were slapping that on PC's yet.

    Not really sure it can be put there with 100% confidence, as MS hasn't yet released "official" hardware requirements for Vista.

    DirectX9 cable and 256MB of dedicated RAM should be more than adequate for Video cards in Vista :)

    The Dell Latitude D620 also has Vista Capable on it (but won't do glass, moan moan -- although apparently it will do eventually)

    What is holding it back now, driver limitations or Vista requirements?

    I'm not installing Vista, it is Windows XP. I don't know what is holding it back. I go to create the partition, and it just stalls.

    Intel haven't really gone nuts with driver releases for Vista yet.

    bare minimum would be any machine within the last 2 years and has a DX9 graphics card i guess - which would be sufficient for the badge to be slapped on. :p

    Thats funny, my 2.0Ghz AMD64 barely runs Vista.....technically its capable, but its definitely not a surreal experience.

    A 600MHz Celeron is capable of running XP but it doesn't do it very well.

    My Compaq Presario 2100 with 1024MB ram (128MB) used by the Radeon IGM 320M graphics card, 1.8ghz AMD Athlon XP 2400+ Processor, and now a Toshiba 5400RPM HD with 16mb cache runs Vista nicely. It's nothing to go clocking futuremark with or anything like that, but It's got enough power to run Vista like it's suppose to. EXCEPT for the glass effect and transparency for windows.

    But Oh well.
