If speed, performance or compatibility is your problem, I advice you to use windows 7 I have been using it for months now and most of my softwares are working fine and also i only have 1 GB RAM and 1.6 ghz processor and it is still almost as fast as XP

. If the seller won't "downgrade" for you, it may be cheaper to buy a used computer (make sure you get the install disc) and transfer XP to your new machine. . I don't know what the EULA says about doing that, but, as long as you wipe Windows from the old machine, I don't think there will be a problem. . Not sure what to do about the code sticker - I've never been able to take one off without destroying it.

Fox is mostly right - some manufacturers will exchange the vista product key for an xp product key. Other than that you're hooped.
