This notebook rocks, the chasis is made by Clevo and this same rig can be purchased by many other builders. I recommend checking out killer notebooks as they are well priced and his customer service is second to none.
I know that vista ran smootlhy on the wakazachi when mark installed it, seeing as the kodachi is the same system in smaller case it should work for that too.
I think the big thing for vista is video ram, and 256 is the least you probobly want to run the new interface smoothly. at least 1gb system ram is definetly a must as vista is a diabolic memory monster.
I havent recieved the laptop yet , should be here today , but the owner ( Mark ) is great. He is a top notch person and is really active here in the forums. Everyone i know of who has one on these forums is extremly happy with them.
