From The Reg...

http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2006/04/04/epson_windows_vista_capable_logo/

reghardware.co.uk: The machine in question is the Endeavour Pro 3500, based on a 3GHz Pentium 4 630, Intel's 975X chipset and Nvidia's GeForce 6600 GT graphics chip. Epson's box has 512MB of DDR 2 SDRAM and an 80GB hard drive too, along with Gigabit Ethernet, six USB 2.0 ports, a pair of PCI Express x16 slots and two x1 connectors.


So will my Athlon 2800+ w/1GB of PC3200 and onboard display adapter do?
I have an AGP slot too, I would imagine a 128MB or 256MB card will be required to deliver the goods?

Hows the beta going guys? Whats your opinion so far? Does it kick onions all over XP? Whats the good stuff so far?

I had a 3 year old AGP 64Mb ATI Radeon card and that wasnt good enough and I couldnt resist not having the AERO graphics so went and got a new ATI card thats 256Mb and that does the job very well.

I'm using build 5308 at present and it's generally good but I hear that 5342 is much better. Will be downloading it soon probably...

Oh and one more thing, the logos that say Vista Capable mean that the hardware can run vista, that doesnt mean that they can run ALL features of vista such as the Advanced graphics ...etc

Yeah the article goes on to point out that the machine can run Vista Basic...

Epson box is a bit light in the hard drive and memory department. You would think that with memory being 'as cheap as chips' you would at least chuck in a couple of gig.
