    Do any of the top manufacturers of PCs or Laptops ie Dell, Gateway, HP, Packard Bell, Compaq, supply computers with any of the of the following Vista versions (home basic, home premium, business, and ultimate) installed, include the proper Vista installation CD for future use or do all of them preinstall OEM versions of the above Vista operating systems on all of their computers.

    think dell ,compaq,and acer are preinstalled with extra cost to provide disc but they all have ability to create one but only once

    Most if not all have begun to include the medai again after HP got sued. There is, however, a ~$15 charge to cover the cost of the disc, etc.
