Hello, this is my first thread on the CNET forums. anyway, i plan on buying a netbook pretty soon, which is the asus eee pc 1005 hab, which includes windows XP. i plan on using it for itunes, backup storage, maybe some school work, but i think the main focus is for itunes. can the netbook i mentioned be used without problems? will itunes be limited because of the netbook hardware? i know you cant watch HD or SD video, play iTunes extras and whatnot, but can i use itunes for iPod management, like restoring and downgrading and whatnot? also, just a personal preference, but can you change the color of the XP taskbar from the blue color? Silly

It does that fine. Yes you may have to be patient for some operations but it does work. My nephew has an emachines 250-1162 netbook and an ipod nano which he uses all the time.

Thanks for the response. Can I still change the wallpaper or the color of the XP taskbar though?

There are plentiful discussions about Windows 7 Basic and how to change the wallpaper in spite of how it arrives. I bet the color of the taskbar is covered too.

As to Windows XP, no version I know of has such a limitation or needs any work around.

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?
