Need Advice : Purchasing XP Laptop Tags: Laptops Windows 7 Windows XP Last response: February 12, 2011 2:59 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share shhno1cares February 11, 2011 10:13:11 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$ Dual Core WIN7 or XP 2GB RAM 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.
