    Should I put Windows XP on my Laptop?

    Post  Guest on Fri Sep 11, 2009 3:06 am

    Ok so my laptop can be very slow at times and very aggravating. So I was wondering... should I put XP on it? I have never had XP running on this laptop so I am unsure of how much faster it will be. At the moment it has less than a gig of RAM but I will be upgrading it soon to 2 gigs and am getting Windows 7. So any suggestions are much appreciated.

    Edit** I think I'll put Linux on my laptop until I get more RAM.

    Don't waste your time with Linux; Linux really is just a retarded version of OS X.
    I bet you can get a copy of XP for cheap now days...I got my XP Home Premium 64-bit version for like $80, so its not too bad.

    BUT!!!

    Instead of installing Linux, and going to buy XP, just get more RAM and its much cheaper than a legit copy of XP....you can get a 2GB 667MHz DDR2 laptop stick for like $50 or $60 bucks....*that is if thats the BUS speed of your laptops RAM* You need to find out the speed of your RAM before you go buy, cause you can't go lower than your current BUS speed, and you don't want to mix BUS speeds or your computer will have terrible performance...

    I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 and it has 2 spots for RAM but I forgot what kind it takes but I think it can only hold 2 or 4 GB of RAM.
    Ya it can only hold 2GB of PC2-4200 RAM.

    You can try to install XP on your laptop but some of the device drivers may not work, even though MS will put generic drivers in the place of the ones you need. Windows 7 is dropping in October and it's supposedly the fix to all the problems in vista.
