How much different is it really from XP and is there really anything that isn't compatible from it? Ever since the patches came out, I've only heard good things about it.
You won't have too much difficulty (if any at all) running most applications. Enough caveats in that sentence?
You won't see much bang for your buck out of the 64-bit architecture, or from the Quad Core. Most applications still aren't taking advantage of these technologies quite yet. But you won't have too much trouble adjusting to the operating system. It's still a Windows environment with some better functionality layered on. The new Start Search feature is similar to Spotlight on the Mac, and it works very well, but most of the extra stuff is unnecessary and leads to some significant bloating. I turn almost all of it off for gaming.

Vista all round is very similar to XP, with alittle more prettiness. It can be a bit slower, but if you're willing to mess around with services.msc to stop all the useless programs booting, as far as I can tell, it's no worse than XP.
Great site for figuring out what services you need running.

Search your model number for the DVD drive and download and install the driver manually after the update, or even before it.
Not sp 1 related, but the new update is disabling my dvd drive. gawd. I system restored back to before this most recent update, dvd drive works properly. Then I re-update, and dvd drive is back down.
