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!!!

I have a dell inspiron 1545 which has caused me nothing but grief since my purchase in june09 a cousin has given me his old hp pavillion zt 1170. the dell has vista and the pavillion has xp which is the...


Considering the specs:
Pavillion zt1170:
Intel Mobile Pentium III-M processor (starting at 933 MHz) with SpeedStep technology. –or– Intel Celeron processor (starting at 866 MHz).
Inspiron 1545:
A minimum of an Intel® PentiumTM Dual Core

There is no comparison between the computers,.. Keep the dell and work out the issues or sell it and use the cash towards an inexpensive new unit.
I hope this helps

Lenovo 3000 N100 0768-FTG lap top need processor upgrade


I'm afraid you're out of luck, the motherboard is not capable of taking a dual core processor. Your only option would be to consider selling the laptop and buying a new one that already has a dual core processor installed.
