    I had heard rumors that we would be seeing drastic markdowns on computers packaged with XP after the release of Vista.... in other words that retailers would be blowing out machines built and packaed with XP or selling them to discount wholesalers after the release of Vista and Vista packaged machines.

    Anyone else heard of this? If so any sales or leads?

    I dont remember that happening much when XP came out. They just sold the computers with free XP upgrade coupons.

    I might buy another comp if they did though.

    I work at staples and yes all of the XP machines have to be sold by march 15th. We just sold a laptop with 1 gig of ram, 120 gig hdd, and a 17 inch screen for 629.
