Last day to order XP from Dell without penalty is June 18th

If you’ve been dragging your feet ordering a new computer from Dell with Windows XP, better hurry–June 30th is the final day Microsoft will allow XP to be sold by hardware manufacturers like Dell before they’ll be forced to transition to Vista.

After June 18th, Dell will still allow you to order a certain machine with XP installed but they will charge a small fee.

XP isn’t completely going away, but it will no longer be offered on standard computers and instead will begin its new live on UMPC’s like the MSI Wind (among others).
