My present computer runs XP and is just the way I want it. However, today I saw a really great deal on an Acer tower that is faster & has more Ram & has more HD capacity (560 GB) than does my present computer. Unfortunately, it comes pre-loaded with Vista. I have an image of my present computer's system drive (which is only 40GB). As already mentioned the Acer's HD is much larger. QUESTION: If I buy the Acer & "restore" my current system's image to the Acer's system drive, will doing so hopefully cause the Acer to be just the same as what I have now -- except bigger & faster?
