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.

A Windows Vista Capable PC includes at least:
  • A modern processor (at least 800MHz1).
  • 512 MB of system memory.
  • A graphics processor that is DirectX 9 capable.
A Windows Vista Premium Ready PC includes at least:
  • 1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor1.
  • 1 GB of system memory.
  • Support for DirectX 9 graphics with a WDDM driver, 128 MB of graphics memory (minimum)2, Pixel Shader 2.0 and 32 bits per pixel.
  • 40 GB of hard drive capacity with 15 GB free space.
  • DVD-ROM Drive3.
  • Audio output capability.
  • Internet access capability.

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.

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). :(
