Hi, I am in need of a new desktop computer but I would like XP home on it instead of Vista, I use vista now on my laptop and prefer XP home, is it possible to buy a new machine with xp home on it as they all seem to automatically come with Vista?...Thanks Val

I'll second the vote on using novatech, great company, although you do have to purchase XP seperately, unless you already have a product key

Other than that, I'd suggest using Google product search to find one of the smaller retailers, they'll probs still use XP on some machines.

As I already have xp home on my old comp. Am I allowed to use that?...I wouldn't know how to do it mind you..Not sure if this is legal or not...Thanks by the way for the information

as long as it's not an OEM version of XP, you can use it on a new one providing it is removed from the old computer.
