My gf wants to buy a laptop for her job

which requires her to use Microsoft Office alot. Should she get a laptop with XP or Vista on it? Would buying a laptop with XP be less expensive then buying a laptop with Vista?

Tpically there is no price difference

for Vista or XP. Recommend that you get Vista with a new computer. Microsoft release a SP for XP this year and it will be the last. Once it's 2008 the support for XP will decrease.

Get her an ACER Ferrari ! It's red in color. Ask her whether XP or Vista is more suitable for use at her office.
