    At RabbieBurns: If you have a look at the schools area Schools, the Optiplex Dell 755 still has the option for XP. The order was a tender. Fortunately or us, our external account manager lives 10 mins away from us.

    I am looking to buy for a personal client outwith the school, and they want either one of two systems, the optiplex isn't one of them.

    Im waiting on a couple of quotes from re-sellers just now.

    correct me if i am wrong.......

    because i frequently are wrong.....

    If you have a nice ms sticker on the side of your new pc that says vista, cant you just install any version of windows prior to that?
    is it illegal to install ms xp pro, using a vlk, on a retail pc with a vista license??

    I believe that is allowed, but for my scenario here, the woman Im buying for won't have a VLK, and Im pretty sure I wouldnt be allowed to use the school one for something thats absolutely nothing to do with the school.
