Looks like there are still a few PCs out there selling with Windows XP Professional installed for those of us that refuse to switch to Vista or pay Dell an extra $100 to install it over Vista!

OSU,

That's what I'm looking for, my 4.5 yr old computer is giving me trouble, don't want to give the Geek Squad any more of my money. (I am done with Best-Buy) Can't find anything but Vista in the stores.

Are these guys legit, sounds like a too good to be true price.

Charles: MicroCenter is good for the East Coast as most of their stuff is In store pick-up only. Good catch on the $399 Dell if shipping is not too high.

TC: Yes it's Buy.com through Amazon.

I got a new Dell with Win XP Home direct for Dell in June and now it will cost $99 more to get it without Vista.

They bought a bunch of them before Dell stopped selling XP Pro.

Dell will still sell Windows XP Pro, you just have to spend an extra $99 tp $194 on Vista Business or Vista Ultimate in order to get "downgrade" rights to XP Pro.

OSU, Charles,

Thanks for the tip. I just might make the drive out to Ohio to look at the Dell computers in person. Hate to buy on-line without seeing the product first hand.

Use your local computer builder, biz owner, you know like us AMC = Walmart Best Buy, Independent biz owner = US.

I've had 3 computers built, since Vista year, no problems, XP YUP we'll install it.

Broken well fix it.

Need Word? Adobe? ya we got it.

Microcenter is great. We have one out here in Troy, MI. Worth a look if you have one around.

I guess I am the odd one here, but I love Vista! It runs everything fine, and has more features than XP and is very stable. I am using the 64bit operating system also, which uses the 4Gb of ram my machine has. 32bit systems only recognize 3GB.

You know you have the option of running older programs in "compatibility" mode just like with Win XP don't you? You can run programs compatible from WinXP SP 2 All the way back to Win95.
