I feel it's not a good computer for someone that doesn't want to go through the pain of installing XP. HP doesn't seem to support anything for XP at all and all the drivers I had to get from third-parties or write myself.
After switching back to XP Pro (it comes with Vista) and upgrading the RAM, this computer works great as a software and web development machine, since rolling-back to XP, I haven't had a problem with it.
With XP Pro Media Center edition and 2 GBs of RAM, this computer is very fast and doesn't have a problem running Adobe Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and Visual Studio all at the same time!
