Should I buy a laptop now with a free upgrade to Windows 7 or wait for it to come out?

Q: I’m looking at purchasing a new laptop. The one I want to purchase will have all the top performance options. I am looking at vista ultimate for an operating system.

My question is should I buy now and get the free upgrade to windows 7? Or should I wait until windows 7 comes out and buy a laptop with windows 7 installed from the factory? Will upgrading vista ultimate to windows 7 slow down my computer?
