Be careful,.. some manufacturers VOID the warranties of people who do exactly what your suggesting. I suggest making sure that Toshiba doesn't do this, and/or asking if you may purchase a laptop without an operating system. The one downside to downgrading is finding drivers for your components, be sure you can find them for whatever OS you install.

Looking to buy a new laptop


Many places are now offering a choice between XP and Vista for their machines. They are finding that Vista only has taken a bite out of their sales. If you find the machine you want, but it's not offered with XP, you can change the operating system fairly easy. Just about all the major manufacturers are offering drivers for XP at their support sites. They too have figured out that Vista isn't quite what they said it was, and now know it was a mistake not to offer the drivers. In my opinion as far as offering equal support for both XP and Vista for their machines, Dell is on top and by far the easiest to use, then IBM/Lenovo, Gateway, Toshiba, Sony, then Acer. HP/Compaq still has their head up their ***. You can find drivers for XP if you know the make and model of the components, ie... sound card, video card, and wireless card, if you don't know the make and model you will have to take the machine apart to get them. You will not be able to find the drivers at HP's support site, because if the machine was designed for Vista, then only Vista drivers will be found there. Not to mention that they have the most fragile motherboard on the market.
So, let's recap, BUY a: Dell, IBM/Lenovo, Toshiba, Gateway, Sony, Acer is cheaply made and has a few bugs, especially with their web cam, so think twice, and DO NOT buy an HP/Compaq. Hope this helps and happy shopping!!!
