Vista comes in 32 bit aswell eh. Also that laptop should run vista fine if you chose to upgrade it. As for that Acer, I have sold 10 or 15 of them in the last few month and they are great notebooks. You'll be happy with it.

Awesome...i am going to have it tonight so I think ima DL all the drivers and stuff and then load up XP pro on it and install all the drivers....gonna be a LONG LONG night Weeee

( I have to Raid in World of Warcraft too...so thatl make it easier. AND the second half of season 10 of South Park starts up today and its on WoW....>CANT WAIT!!!)

EDIT: Marshal, is that with an updated bios, because that option isn't in bios that came with the laptop. I am going to re-format the thing when I get the chance but ATM I just don't really have the time to re-format the whole computer and deal with all the drivers, so I just let it go with what it comes with and killed almost everything manually lol
