ya as long as they have the drivers I'm good to go. With the drivers available it dosnt really matter if they offer XP because I'm not going to pay extra for XP Pro which I already have.
Is there a list of the base differences between a Vostro and Inspiron, like ports available, camera card slots, etc...I configured a inspiron on the military aafes website for $939, aafes dosnt offer the Vostro but on the dell site I configured one with the same specs but a 7200rpm drive instead of the 5400 and it was around $990.
interesting thing about aafes vs. dell website, aafes gives me around 7 HD options for the 1720, dell only 2 or 3. Its not an actual aafes website but a dell link you can only access through aafes. Aafes give me more memory options, 1 or 2 gigs, same price for some reason and Vista Ult is not an option.
