Probably time for a new one, hey.
why get a new one if you don't need it -- just run XP as a virtual machine using free virtualisation software like Virtual PC, vmware server or VBOX. Your scanner will work just fine on this.
If this is the only app you need a tiny 256MB RAM Virtual XP machine will run just fine.
Save your money for more HOST RAM, better Video, another HDD etc. Unless you really NEED a new scanner the hardware will last for ages and ages.
I'm still using an old HP plotter circa 1985 -- works fine on an XP virtual machine.
Use the Virtualisation section of the forum for info in this topic and how to set up virtual machines.
