Are You Vista Ready?

CNET and Systems Requirements Lab came up with an analyzer that helps you find out if you can run Windows Vista on your current system. It’s free and comes with no obligations. You don’t need to sign up for anything nor buy anything. This service checks your hardware and system software to find out if it is properly configured to run Vista.

CNET came up with its own list of requirements for Vista, and it compares your system against that list. You also get feedback and suggestions on what to do to meet the minimum requirements.

Here’s more info about the Vista Readiness Advisor:
