Why not? It exceeds Vista's requirements. It might not be perfect with the beta of Bootcamp, but it will certainly run fine on the final release. Lots of people are running the Release Candidates already.

Now why you would want to bother with Vista to begin with is another subject open to debate.

I'm running Vista on my macbook, so you'll be just fine. Although drivers are kind of a hassle.
