While a non-interesting item to me, it seems to be interesting to some.
From what I have read Microsoft plans to no longer offer Windows XP to computer manufacturers near the end of June 2008 so I think. Besides Dell Computers are there currently any other computer manufacturers still offering Windows Home or Windows Pro XP on any of their new computers or has everyone else made the switch to Windows Vista operating systems on their new computers?
Is that supposed to be funny? Well for those of us like myself who are very much interested in a new computer with Windows XP I'm sure you can figure that one out. You could have posted your comments in the newbee section. If there weren't so many issues with Vista people like me wouldn't be interested in XP.
This was my question: LAPTOP WITH XP.
These were among googles answer besides Dell:
So the answer is a big YES. Pick your choice and go for it. Don't hesitate until it's too late. Then you might be forced to buy a second hand laptop, and I'm not sure that is what you want.
For a desktop (not clear from your post what you want) I found (besides Dell) http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/ca/en/sm/WF04a/12132708-12132884-12132884-12132884-12736486.html
But I'm sure your local computershop can assemble one for you.
Hope this helps.
I would be using a new desktop to surf the web, email, word processing and some Quicken. I would like of course Windows Home XP, a 56k modem, ability to access high speed internet, integrated graphics and audio, good size HD, > 80GB but < 300GB, 2GB memory, 2 separate drive bays if possible, CDRW in one, a DVD ROM in the other, can't decide on going with a built in floppy drive or the media card reader. I won't be doing any gaming or digital photography. I have been looking at Dell's Inspiron 530 which can be configured with Windows XP, also I'm not sure on which processor to select. I have read here that a core duo 2 is better than a dual core and to not even consider a celeron. It's the processor type and speed that I don't know that much about as to which one I should select.
- No need for 2 Gb of memory for your use of XP. 1 Gb is more than enough.
- Every CPU will do for your use, even a Celeron. A Core 2 Duo is faster, but (a) more expensive, and (b) you'll not note the difference when doing surfing, mailing, word processing and Quicken. Just throw a dice if you can't decide.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
