I’ve been looking into a new notebook lately and while “some” of the hardware configurations should make it Aero Glass compatible and potentially pass the Vista Upgrade Advisor muster, there’s just no guarantee that all device drivers will be updated.

When speaking to Dell sales personnel on the phone they made verbal guarantees that the configuration I setup would be Vista Premium Capable – but they can’t (or wouldn’t) put that on the final configuration that would become my “contract” with them.

I also put together another configuration with 64Meg Video and the sales guy said “Yes, that will support Aero”.  So, clearly they have no clue either.  Buyer beware.

It boils down to driver support and updates from the OEM’s to support Vista.

So, I’m waiting.
