    Angry Toshiba is selling Vista only machines! Watch Out!!

    Brand new A135-s2246 and Toshiba is NOT providing support for any other operating system than "Vista"! I need to put XP Pro on it as many others do.
    This is really wrong for them to be doing this!!!

    Just for that model? I could see that if it came preinstalled with Vista, that they'd only train their staff to support that, rather than train staff on that model with xp and vista support.

    well, the switch-over has to happen at some point, but yeah, its a bit early isn't it. I'm only switching to vista when I replace my pc, which given my current financial status is a while away yet. At work there's not a chance in hell of us using vista in the next 3 years, too much hardware/software to replace.
    If the world doesn't stop annoying me I will name my kids ";DROP DATABASE;" and get revenge.

    If I remember right, this is a new model that was launched to coincide with the release of Vista Home Edition. Yes it is pre-loaded, and has one of those manufacturer's recovery partitions.

    The problem I would anticipate is that Toshiba never intended it to run anything other than Vista, so if you want XP you might run into problems with drivers?

    just a thought
