Even more problems and some solution

Things are going worst! My laptop screen is dead... Not because of the Trojan I caught, it started to falter about 10 days ago. Presently I'm connected to the monitor of the PC.
I decided to buy a new laptop, I didn't want to buy anything for my BD (but Andromeda season 4 pack, because of Niiiiick) but I have to.
I decided for a Dell- good brand, serious- as they advertise they can provide computers with Windows XP, and I don't want Vista, several of my softwares wouldn't be compatible I guess; I'm still using Photoshop 6 LOL
So I called and was told Windows XP is no more available, since last June, FUCK!!!
But the laptop I was interested in (Inspiron 1720), though sold with Vista, is compatible with XP, and I'll be able to change the OS. And it's not *too* expensive because the model won't be available anymore... next week. Ooops.
So I suppose my old laptop got blind just in time?
Yet, I still find unbearable Microsoft is imposing its OS even when European courts has condemned them for forced sale. I shouldn't have to buy Vista when I've already bought XP and don't want to use anything else.

I agree about the Vista/XP thing! When I bought my new PC last year, I tried and tried to find one that came with XP installed, but I had to settle for Vista. It seems like there should be an option. :/

I'm sorry you have had so many computer problems lately. Urrrgh.

Computer problems are the pits! Hope yours are resolved smoothly. Oh, and I'm still using Photoshop 6, too. :-)

I have a work lapotp Dell. It's a good functional one, I'd have bought a cooler (newer) model if it was mine own.

Hmm. I thought it was not a problem to have a new PC with Office XP installed...

Oh, yipes. I'm sorry, that does stink. Yeah, options are definitely good! You'd think they'd make more money offering choices.
