Okay I am being nice to my wife for Xmas and thinking of getting her a laptop. How reliable is Vista. I have heard pros and cons for each, but and most of the laptops I have seen (Costco, Best Buy, CompUsa, etc) only come configured with Vista where she is more comfortable with XP.
Also, how reliable are Dell laptops? They are cheap and have an educator discount and are not charging extra to have a laptop configured with XP. (Gateway is charging 50 or 150 with no educator discount)
Ya see this is why I like Macs
