I am a laptop newbie and I am planning to purchase my first laptop. Right now I have narrowed it down to either the A8Js or W3J, but will most likely get the A8Js. I'm not getting it right away but sometime around late November or December is when I plan to get it. Anyways, I've read that ASUS laptops come preinstalled with WinXP but do come with recovery discs. When I get my laptop, I plan to do a fresh install of WinXP to get rid of any unwanted programs that I won't need. Now I know you can do this with the recovery discs, but I was wondering if getting a new OEM copy with my laptop would be the best way to go. I only have WinXP x64 edition but that's installed on my desktop computer. So, would getting a OEM copy of WinXP from the dealer be a reasonable choice?
