New Laptop

by strashk / January 30, 2007 11:31 PM PST

Since Vista came out this week, the "older" laptops have been discounted quite a bit. Should I buy an "older" laptop or pay the higher price and get the newer one with Vista?

Since the 'older' laptops that come with XP pre-installed are just as good as those 'newer' ones with Vista pre-installed and come with a free upgrade to Vista all for a discounted price it's hard to pass up the deal. There really isn't a downside, so I'd take it.

Just my view.
