All Acer's laptops ship with Vista (Service Pack 1), although the TravelMates do also have an XP 'recovery' disc in the box, allowing users to roll back should they so wish. Availability isn't known for sure, but apparently there are ships and planes bringing pallets over right now, so it shouldn't be too long before the systems start shipping in the UK.
