anybody out there? could you at least tell me where to find out when my machine was built?
Click on the apple icon in the upper left corner of the screen and select About This Mac. If you can list the specs like the processor and memory, someone here can tell you what model year it is. You can probably google it too.

Why Vista? Windows 7 or XP of you can't do 7.
