    Where can you still buy a legit vista key?

    Find new old stock or find a Dell OEM vista disc

    Is Storage a Deal-breaker Here?

    Just looking at it at stores and reading upon it on the internet, I feel like the Aspire 5 is a decent all rounder

    Older laptop - Few questions

    Like 10, 8.1 doesn't need a key. Just need to modify bootable USB. Only limitations are lack of personalisation, water mark and a 'pop up' after logging in.

    Older laptop - Few questions

    AMD Turion™II X2 are dammn beasts. These rocks. Even 11 years on, they perform better than 2014 Intel Atom's and can run full 64 bit Windows 8.1 no problem. Just need to disable some animations. An SSD would be better but a bit unnecessary. Best bit, Windows 8.1 is free from microsoft.com and can be installed with a bootable USB. No disc required.

    Laptop Brands What you can rely on??

    Well, I'm very partial to Dell. However, I'm ok with anything but Asus.

    Is there an AMD equivalent to Intel's i5-8300H?

    How to upgrade 7 years old HP laptop?

    If the your ProBook uses an older revision of SATA e.g. SATA 3 Gb/s, then a SSD will be bottlenecked. But a bottenecked SSD will still be faster than a HDD.
  9. if not mistaken, you'll need to format the USB as MBR
  10. Dell XPS Convertible
  11. If it's an old device (6 years and older), I suggest legacy for BIOS and MBR for rufus. Prehaps you could format the HDD with another computer.

    Installing Windows XP

    I suggest sourcing a Dell OEM XP disc and proceed from there. Dell OEM discs are typically pre-activated.
