When Epson rolled out its Endeavor Pro 3500 desktop system for the Japanese market, it revealed the new "Windows Vista Capable" logo seen here. This was the first PC to include this stamp of approval from the Redmondians, and the first official version we've seen of the logo.

The Epson PC apparently has adequate graphics horsepower to handle Vista's bling. The box is running a 3GHz Pentium 4 630, along with Intel's 90075X chipset and the NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT graphics chip. It looks like this box might be right along the borderline of Vista capability, though, with "only" 512 MB of RAM and an 80GB hard drive. Epson said this PC will just be running Windows Vista Home Basic Edition, but still, you can't be too rich, too thin or have too much RAM.
