Vista is going to struggle on that spec. And I can't imagine why you would want to 'upgrade' to Vista, when XP is a better, less demanding OS.

Just be grateful that you're still running XP, and - as citadel says - wait to see whether Windows 7 is worthwhile.

i think i will wait :)

one more question plz if you get a recovery disk with your laptop and you format it and install a new os .......will th recovery disk still work if you decide to go bk the the old os ????

NO!! once you have formatted you will need a full bootable copy of your chosen O/S...
