As soon as it's written, I should imagine.

Um. So if I went out and bought a Vista laptop (Home Premium) and then they come out with SP1 would I get a free upgrade or would I just be screwed and have a peice of junk system for the next how many year?

Asus, Gateway 2000, Intel, Sager, Chem USA, and IBM's are all available without an OS. There are other Laptops listed in the link I sent by PM.
I thought Gateway is now defunct.
The original Gateway (based in Ireland) went bankrupt, I believe, and was bought by Acer very cheaply. Gateway did not have a very good reputation for service, support, or even delivering on time, and they may well have been some of the causes of their demise.
Perhaps check out the reviews for the Acre notebooks.

I don't need super-whizzo graphics. I don't even need a sound card. It doesn't have to be Wi-Fi. So long as it's quick, has around 100Gb harddrive, 2Gb memory and a couple of USB ports, I'll be happy. Oh, and it has to be able to take a mouse. I hate those touch-sensitive pads.
Not sure on what you are going to roll a mouse over when in the garden, or in the middle of a field (don't think a picnic rug works as a surface to roll a mouse over). I personally like trackballs (not the mini ones, but full sized ones) - then you don't worry about a surface to roll them over (which, on my cluttered desk, there is nothing free to roll over anyway).
