Windows Vista is due at the end of January and has some new features that require a powerful PC. For instance, the fantastic new Aero theme requires a fairly hefty graphics card. Mind you, that's all you might need. You might be surprised. To get the best from Vista, your PC might only need a better graphics card and some more memory - a cost that may be under £100. Far cheaper than having to purchase a brand new computer.
Microsoft Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor is a tool that will examine your computer and see how relevant it is to run Vista. It will also advise on the version of Vista most relevant to you, based on your current specification. You can then choose whether you want to upgrade your PC so you can take advantage of the additional features within Vista Ultimate.
