GeneralXP vs. Vista: What is your hardware Pin

Ok, I think Vista is crap but that could be because it is really the HP dual core AMD I bought that said it was Vista ready and it was not.

It has a NVIDIA graphics card installed ... I have had MANY blue screens of death. Also my graphic intensive WPF chromosome browser application runs very slow on my Vista dual core PC but very fast on my Sony VIAO laptop with XP.

I notice the half of my co-workers that do like Vista have Dell laptops and the others, such as myself, have PC's/laptops from different vendors.

So those of you that are having a good experience with Vista what is your hardware?

And those of you having bad experience with Vista what is your hardware?
