I currently use a computer with Vista for producing graphics. At idle, the OS uses 40% of my (2GB) RAM. Microsoft also changed some of its vocabulary, forcing users to relearn meanings. When I first saw it, I thought it looked really good, but the good looks quickly wore off. If replacing it wasn't so complicated, I'd replace it in a heartbeat.

No. If you want to try using Vista on a new system, at least get a dual-boot setup so you can boot to XP if you need to.
Wireless "n" is being widely sold, but is not an official "standard" yet. Most "n" routers and adapters will probably work fine with the final standard (but may require updating the firmware).
