Anyone know if you can install WinXP on this machine? I prefer XP and you can't teach old dogs new tricks. Probably trouble finding drivers?
XP not supported after April 8th 2014.
If you can run XP, you can run Windows 7. I've still got all three previous OS on different computers on the house, and they are very similar. You may have to look at the control panel screen an extra minute, but you'll find things just fine. XP is 4 generations back, so there is very little invested in that OS right now as far as drivers. Only businesses are still running XP, and they will be forced to upgrade due to the April date next year.
Same system hasn't shown any in stock for several days now..to show how great a deal that was at $169, there is this currently available: http://www.cowboom.com/product/1264570 (saw 4 7's and 1 6 currently available). The s5-1234 offers a tad less for almost $100 more this time around.
