Yes. Vista would be too slow for 1 GB of RAM, even if it's the recommend amount. 2 GB is excellent for best results. Also, he could run virtualization software and create a virtual machine and operate Vista that way. Actually, virtualization is strongly recommended since you don't need to think about hardware and software requirements like you would have to if you were installing Vista for real.

I'm thinking of getting a netbook and want to use Vista on it. I know I'll have to increase the RAM to 2GB to get a decent performance out of it but I don't know if these Netbooks are built to have Vista installed on them. I will be browsing for a netbook and the Samsung NC10 will be amongst my thoughts. I think it will be a toss up between the NC10 and the Advent 4213 which is a mobile broadband netbook as it has a simcard slot. Both machines are priced the same at £322.96.
