When was the last time anyone recieved a reinstall disk from a manufacture :/
Last I remember was way back in x-p days
I can't answer that question.
I have always installed Windows from a Microsoft DVD on all my system through the years.
Activated them with the proper COA key and went on with my life.

A XP laptop I bought in 2011 had a disc, those days are gone though.

XP - 32bit
 
 

Thanks for the reply's everyone!!

As I originally said, I'm looking for a newer laptop, not new, probably several years old. Refurbished can be a good deal as was pointed out, I've taken that route before also. From what I've read and was posted here, I'm strongly leaning toward a laptop that has Win 7 installed, rather than a newer unit that has 8 or 10 installed. It would be a lot easier. My computing power needs are low as I really only use Excel and Word, plus web surfing.

Again, thanks all,

Alex

Yep just notice return policies and if any doubts about overheating.... report immediately and return it asap
Most will only have 30 days if that
And some will only offer exchanges so read up

Most will also come from a vender and not the site so also read up on seller reviews.

If you have 3GB or under RAM, the 32bit version OS will run much faster.

Paul, I think "much faster" is a bit optimistic.

"Noticeably" faster? I'd give it at least a 20% difference.

I would vote for "Can't tell any difference".

That is closer to reality.

I would go for 64 bit if the laptop has the capability of adding more ram.
I have never owned a 32 bit Windows XP or Windows 7.
So I have no direct knowledge to compare with.
