Like Dell ? Thats a no.
a cd and floppys is a yes.
I do, yes, Dells have what is needed too! All you do is stick the XP CD in and switch the computer off - switch it back on and it will ask to boot from the CD, boot fromt he CD and you can format the Drive and load XP - either that or Format the drive with XP and install whatever else tickles your fancy! Linux, Windows 3.1, Rocker would say Suse!

You can sometimes get a real nice deal with a Pre-Built computer! And its not hard to just reinstall Windows from the begginning and wipe the factory settings from the start!
