    You've most probably got Vista Home Basic or Premium on it, which you will
    have to upgrade to Ultimate. Then you can use language packs to change it
    to English. You will still have the Spanish keyboard though, of course.

    That depends on what Vista edition you bought. If you have Ultimate, you can
    download an English multi-lingual user interface pack (MUI) from Microsoft.
    If it is a Home or Business edition you can not, and you should try to have
    the retailer replace your laptop with an English speaking one.
