Im loving windows 7 at the mo on my main PC but hated vista with every fibure of my body - vista was a failure in every which way - get windows 7.

But if your using it just for Maya save the money and get a desktop as most laptop Graphic cards suck for Maya

From what I hear, Windows 7 is MUCH better on the ram usage.

Vista was "o.k." never had too big of a problem with it but Windows 7 kicks its butt.

I agree about Windows 7. I have found the memory management as NextDesign mentioned to be quite good.

Not tried Windows 7 myself but I hear very good reports regarding it.

Vista isn't too bad once you switch all the rubbish off, but its still very resource hungry.

If I was buying now, I would go Windows 7.

I personally can't stand either but 7 is definitely better than vista in every way
