ArchiCad 7.0 with Windows Vista?

Not applicable

currently I am using ArchiCAD 7.0 on Windows XP. As I need to buy a new PC, all are offering Windows Vista.

Does anybody has experience with ArchiCAD 7.0 and Vista? - any problems during installation and usage?

Only AC11 is officially supported on Vista.
That does not mean you will have problems, it is just a piece of information.

I believe many vendors still offer XP as an option. I would not recommend Vista yet (even for AC11). Everyone I know is sticking to XP for now. It seems especially risky with five year old software (AC7). I strongly suggest upgrading to 11, it is a HUGE advance over version 7.
