    The thing is, Vista has just been replaced by Windows 7. If you want to keep XP, you pretty much can only get it by buying a netbook.

    If you decide to move to a newer version of Windows, skip right over Vista and Windows 7, because not only was Vista much disliked, it's now becoming obsolete. With 7, you can use a classic Windows view, by the way.
    you were kidding???? :shock:
    OF COURSE I KNEW U WERE KIDDING!!!

    I don't know what it was, but I never liked Vista either.
    I was thinking of a netbook, but I have to consider what DH would like too. It's not like I'm a gonna be paying cash.
    This is good to know, Lisanne.:thumbup:

    Netbooks have hard drives. What you mean is, you need a CD-Rom (or a DVD) drive. You can always buy an external one that plugs into the netbook.

    Does EQ need to run from a disk, or does it install right into your computer? Either way, it might be worthwhile to just buy an external CD-ROM drive along with a netbook. You also need to find out whether it can run in Windows 7.

    Mousie, I can honestly say that once you go MAC you'll never go back. Now that I have an iMac for my desktop, I can't think that I'll ever use windows again. Just think, don't have to worry about virus', etc! It never slows down or crashed.

    Plus, I use my ipod touch as my portable computer. It doesn't get any better than that!

    Every two years I buy the cheapest computer WalMart or Best Buy has. I keep the same monitor a big flat screen, just buy the tower. I pay about $250 for it. This way I'm getting the new computer speed and upgrades without shelling out a lot of cash. Right now I have the cheap E machine and it has been the best. Lightening fast and lots of free space. I won't feel bad at all in two years tossing the tower, I paid $125 for it, marked down at WalMart, as the monitor in the set was broken.

    I love Windows 7!! Vista has a lot of issues and I bought my daughter a new HP with Windows 7 Profesional, 320 gig HD, 4 gig ram, AMD Dual core 64 bit processor, built in web cam, 15.5 widescreen for the low price of $399 at Tiger Direct.com before Christmas.

    Tiger Direct is the place to go if you are buying and Windows 7 is the stuff!!

    DH bought me an Acer laptop for Christmas. I love it. It has Windows 7. It cost about $450 from HSN. It does everything I need it to do and has the ability to do alot of things I don't use. (Web cam, burn dvds, etc.) It has a 17 inch screen.

    hmmm, when you think about it, BellaBoo, that's no more than one of the high priced ones that last 4-5 maybe.
    I might just do that.:-D
