Wich will be the better Value ?

I'm ready for a new PC now. I want windows media center with TV tuner but will also get the Vista upgrade for it.

Can anyone tell me the pros & Cons of factory installed vs. Upgrade?

Also will the prices go up for the factory installed vista OS ?

Thanks for any help

I have had a salesman and two techs tell me it is better to wait if you can and get a new computer with Vista already installed. They said you would avoid some head aches and frustration as upgrades seldom go as planned.
Price wise, it will be pretty much the same.

I agree: wait for another month if you can

In reply to: Wait!

There are a number of reasons to wait and buy a multimedia device with Vist pre-installed; I'm waiting until the middle of February to get one myself.

Also, if you can wait another few weeks, prices will continue to decrease, so you will be saving some money.
