    Re: Windows 7 HP family pack $124.99 at Costco.

    Yep kbohip, went by mine on the way to work and they seem to have plenty. Now it is to see if the wife'll agree and need to convince myself I want to "update" my XP-Pro as I plan to use that system as my data and print server.

    Also don't know if W7 would work on my wife's old 754 lappy.

    BTW with is this XP mode that they are talking about in W7-Pro??

    Why F@H?? Click me!

    I don't have anything as old as a 754 but it installed just fine on two 939s I have. On the lesser one I installed 32 bit because it had only 1.0 GB of RAM and a 1.8 Ghz single core A64 CPU.

    XP mode is only in Pro and above but its not really a feature most people will use. I consider myself a power user and I still got Home Premium which lacks that feature.
