Vista is a shocking operating system; they want to hurry up and bring out a new one, anything but this would be an improvement

i think vista is 10x better than xp personally but each to their own.

xp would imo be best but depends if available

Go to PCWB and search for hp 6735s.

Good graphics and they give Vista and XP !!
