Need Advice : Purchasing XP Laptop
Feb 11, 2011, 10:13 PM
I recently purchased a good PC which runs windows 7, but I need XP for some older programs.
I've been looking around and I think I might need to just downgrade a windows 7 PC.
My main question is are there laptops out there for pretty cheap that meet these specs, but relatively cheap like 300$
WIN7 or XP
I keep searching and searching, but the laptops all are too expensive for what I need it for and include extras that I just don't need.

Your good PC that runs Windows 7 can also run XP.

Depends on what the requirements are for what you want to run in XP. 7 Professional has XP Mode which can run non DirectX apps. VMware Workstation can run XP apps that use up to DirectX 9.0c with hardware acceleration.
