    Ive been saving money for a laptop while working for summer and im about to purchase this laptop

    http://www.pricerunner.co.uk/pl/27-...4-DVDRW-Win-Vista-Home-Premium-Compare-Prices

    I know that with XP you can put in on three machines, is this the same for vista as im also getting a pc which should be able to run vista

    The specs for the pc will be, intel 2.7 processor, 1 gig ram and a huge HD about 300 gig.

    Is there anyone who knows if this can be done ???

    What he said. XP/Vista/etc all run on the one license per machine (unless you have volume license copies).

    Another confirmation: XP can be put on ONE machine, legally. Same with Vista.

    You can install it three times before having to call MS and explain. That's so you can do things like upgrade/replace a motherboard though. You still have just one license for use on one computer.
