Quote from: zaqrack on March 03, 2008, 11:50:42 AMthere are some notebook sold with XP, but you can downgrade your Vista anytime to XP free of charge.
Quote from: CTG on March 03, 2008, 02:18:44 PMNo problem with softwares, I can download XP and Vista too for free (and it's still legal for students and university employees).
Quote from: CTG on January 16, 2008, 12:08:59 AMThanks. Re-installing process will start in an hour, it seems that I'm going to wait a bit with Linux until I buy this "slightly" better notebook:ACER Aspire 7520-6A2G16MIScreen: 17.0" WXGA+ 16:9; 1440x900CPU: Mobile AMD Athlon 64 X2 TK55 (2 cores, 64bit), 1800 MHzChipset: NVIDIA? nForce? 630MRAM: 2048MB 2*1024/533MHzHDD: 160GB 5400RPM SATAOptical drive: 8x DVD+-RW DL SM driveGraphic: NVIDIA?

I'm going to buy it in the early summer. Let's hope it's not a bad choice...
Quote from: CTG on July 23, 2008, 03:55:32 PMWell, you aren't. 256 MB seems to be not enough for XP+SP3 with serious firewall. Booting and finishing all the updates takes about 20-30 minutes after every restart - during that time I can't use my computer, because it's just very slow. Svchost.exe is annoying!
