How will an upgrade effect me?

Hi, i bought a laptop over the last few days of pcworld.co.uk, and as a student could only afford the £400 HP/Compaq C300EA. Although, this laptop is an amazing laptop for its money, and has 1GB of RAM. It also comes with XP Media Centre, and the right to upgrade to Vista Premium. I would like to upgrade if I can, because its free.. my question is, will it slow down the laptop to upgreade to premium, which has a minimum requirement of 1GB RAM???

Have you got 1GB of RAM? I certainly wouldn't want to run Vista on less than that, though you might get away with Basic.

You could always get the upgrade (it's a time limited offer), then install it later on, when you have saved up to upgrade the ram.
