    Hey Marvin.

    Surely if you are buying more than 1, the laptops will be imaged anyway? thus bypassing having to 'downgrade' the rest of the machines (apart from the first one?)

    I havn't seen any with just XP, just as you say with the XP Pro 'downgrade' option.

    Stone computers offer an imaging service, so not only could they provide them with XP on, but if you provide them with a master image with all your software installed, they'll all be duplicated with that as well - dead handy and best of all it's free when you buy PCs from them

    Misco can supply Toshibas with either XP installed of an install disk which is probably a better way to do it because you have an easier path back to vista should you want it.

    If you buy a Dell or HP Laptop or Desktops they still come with HP XP CD's.

    or buy XP OEM copy from ebay.
