    I dont see why New tech shouldnt be able to run an old OS such as XP. You will be losing out on some newer features though

    XP has been losing support from Microsoft for a while now! I just assume that it already has!

    Why would you want XP? Get Windows 7. Its better, faster, cooler, better, faster and cooler! Did I mention its better?

    Go with Windows 3.1, Best Choice.

    FFS, go with windows 7 its better.

    P.S Windows XP looses support soon.
