    What will happen to unsold Vista laptops ?

    Hi,

    My 12 year old is considering buying an Acer 5536 in PC World.
    The slightly higher spec one code 568083 449.99

    Now that comes with the Windows 7 upgrade offer.

    My question is do people think the unsold Vista product will come down in price and sold as Vista, or will they be sold upgraded with windows 7?

    Any thoughts?

    I have no experience of what happened on previous occasions when Windows changed over.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Could still try and blag them to installing the upgrade i guess.

    Probably fail miserably though!

    I view them just as a supplier.
    Acer seem to get reasonable reviews for laptops in that price range.
    Don't they?

    Acer Laptop

    I bought my son the Acer 5738Z model from Argos @449.99. It comes with 500Gb hard drive. Great laptop with fabulous built in webcam. Argos still have it on sale at that price. It comes with Vista Home Premium which has performed flawlessly and 4Gb memory.
