There seems to be a lot of bargain desktop/laptop deals starting to appear. The problem is that a lot of these just wont be up to the task of running vista and potential buyers may find there bargain laptop early next year not quite good enough.
Looks like MS will be offering vouchers for free or discounted upgrades.http://www.crn.com/sections/breakingnews/breakingnews.jhtml?articleId=193105190
Would it be worth mentioning a sticky note somewhere that buyers between now and xmas (an probably post xmas) should be aware of the imminient OS upgrade, that they should check whether the laptop/pc is up to the task of being vista ready. Or alternatively that if they dont care then some bargains may be to be had, just that they are being discounted for a reason.
