What does it take to get a new PC with XP?

Posted by Jordan Erickson;1496591483 –

It looks like Christopher Null over at has laid out what a lot of business and home users are wondering about lately – what does it take to purchase a new computer with Windows XP (READ: *not* Vista) pre-installed on it?

From the article:

“As a rule of thumb, your odds of finding a machine with XP and a sales rep who knows how to configure a machine with that OS are far greater if you call the business sales line instead of the consumer sales line. (Be prepared to fib and say you’re planning to buy 25 computers during the next 12 months.)”
