Vista hasn't been released yet. As far as I know, you cannot buy laptops with Vista pre-installed yet but most places will be offering upgrades. My new laptop that I have just brought is Vista compatable, but doesn't have it pre-installed.

Microsoft has announced that Windows Vista will be broadly available as a stand-alone product or pre-installed on new PCs on January 30, 2007.

Windows Vista will be made available to Volume License customers later in the month of November 2006.

No they won't be cheaper and they are not available yet.

Personally, I wouldn't install Vista as my main OS for some time yet. Many drivers are not yet ready. There is no Hardware accelerated OpenGL drivers and it is still buggy.

I would say it would be better to wait until summer.

Oh, sorry i misunderstood you. :)

Prices of Laptops depend on the hardware used to build them.
Prices of Laptops always sink a bit when the newer models have been released. But between now and summer i would not expect too much lowering.

Prices at Komplett are always very sharp, usually under the shops in town(not always though).

Also, if you are in the UK (they might even ship abroad but I don't know) try this site. I have brought a laptop from here ready for Christmas. They have really fast delivery and good prices.
