It's an old lap top that I have
How much are we talking for a new operating system

Youll probably need alot of new hardware. It'll probably be easier to just buy (or build) a new computer
apparently UG's only type O-

Are you even sure the old lap top would be able to run Windows XP? You can buy it at any computer store. Why dont you just use google?

to avoid problems and further issues with Xp
i recommend buying a new computer with xp already on it...
altho you can safely install from 98 to xp for around 100-200 bux, you will need a more powerful machine than your old laptop for xp to run efficiently.

Why XP? Its a resource hog. try linux if you're not doing anything windows dependant on it

besides, windows 2000 does just as much as XP, its just alot less pretty.

And a hell of a lot more stable. I had 2000 on one of my computers and it was the best OS Windows ever made. It's minimum processor is a pentium 300 I think.

I'm using it right now but the computer is a really old toshiba so I cant install XP on it. Low specs+it freezes.
