Before I switch on and boot up my new Advent laptop for the very first time, are there any practical nuggets of laptop advice I should apply? OS is Vista Premium.

First time I booted a Vista laptop it took 30-45 mins to get to the desktop (at times I thought it had frozen).

Ensure you create a system restore disk straight after boot up and set up of vista.

It automatically started the disc creation software when i set my new laptop up recently.

Create recovery disks if you didn't get disks with it.
