The other question is whether such specifications make sense at all because it is always dependent on what you want to do with a computer. If you are a "premium user" a 40 GB hard disk probably isn't enough for a Windows XP machine nowadays.
Todd Bishop thinks that this is part of an attempt to make people feel comfortable in buying computers now. This is certainly true. However this attempt failed for me. I wouldn't buy a new computer until Vista is already out for some months. By that time, all vendors will offer computers optimized for Microsoft's new OS.
If your company plans to buy a large number of computers, you probably will have to wait anyway. You don't want to deploy them with XP first, and then change the OS again some months later.
