Default Vista Opinion (i need one, don't have one...)

I got Vista Biz edition from school as part of the MSDN AA program and i'm not so sure i should install it on the ole lappy or not. its a Gateway 7422GX laptop for those who want to look it up.

its got:
1 gig of ram
2 Ghz processor (AMD 64 athlon)
ATI M10 Graphics

http://support.gateway.com/*/Mobile/...4204sp49.shtml

SO what do you think? I'm i going to kill it with Vista?
