anywhere still shipping with xp
Ideally would like to purchase a new desktop before next week with XP Pro.
Is anywhere still shipping with XPPro? Ideally she's looking for a dell, but the only option is vista with them. Are there any dell resellers or anything to check out.
(Im sure there was a thread about xp and who was still shipping recently, but I cant find it, and the similar topic thing doesnt seem to be working when Im making this post)

Might be better of going to one of your smaller computer shops, as they will give a more personal touch, and give you XP.

I know for a fact that Dell are doing a downgrade package for all the new computers for the next 2 years. I have just bought 74 machines off them.

Timbo, is that only on telephone orders, as on the website there is only the option for vista home of vista business with no mention of a xp downgrade. How do you get a XP code off them?

Novatech can still supply you with preinstalled xp pro systems.

Yep Dell will be shipping with Vista Business / Ultimate to XP Downgrade for some time.

Microsoft seem to be pushing OEMs not to invoice for systems with XP installed after next Monday (30 June). We buy from Viglen and they've told us that they will have to ship with Vista after that date (not a problem for us; Campus license allows downgrade rights and they're charging us the same for it and we always put our own image on the machines)

Read recently that January 2009 had been a new XP shipping expiry date, although MS did say only smaller hardware suppliers would ship XP after 30 June... but I could be wrong.

I think it maybe depends which part of the Dell website you look at - could have sworn the Small Business section still sells machines with XP Pro installed (you have to pay £40 extra, mind, but then the other option is Vista Home, which you would need to upgrade anyway).
