Does anyone know of suppliers of new laptops who will include Windows XP rather than Vista?

your welcome,if you find one you like i would then do a search on the laptop to find the lowest price,and if you are buying online,i would post back and make sure it's a reputable site.

Actually, they've got only two models with XP.

Do you know of any other sites, smackheadz?

Be careful, the sale of all versions of XP preinstalled or otherwise was stopped by Microsoft as at the end of June this year. It is no longer legal to sell a copy unless to a system builder click here

I would make sure that you get a valid licence, but I doubt if you can, unless whatever you buy is "very low spec."

Microsoft are in fact saying that XP is now history, and I for one agree with them.

Get one click here and put it on a blank Laptop Drive, i.e no Operating System. You will or should get it cheaper
