I have few question for ones who have the knowledge of them. I am looking forward for your support and guidance.
I am going to buy a laptop within a week. I have made my mind about the specs of the laptop. However, i am still confused about the few questions which are still unanswered to me.
1. New laptops come with the operating system installed in them such Vista home edition or vista premium edition. However, some models of laptop come with DOS. They do not specify the name of operating system, they just specify that they have DOS. I have heard that if buy a laptop with vista in it you cannot move to another operating system easily such as xp (as xp is considered be better than vista). Or even if i want to move to windows 7 which will be coming shortly, i cannot migrate to that easily.
However, i have heard that if you buy a laptop with DOS in it you can easily switch to another operating system by just formatting it, as we usually do in desktop computers.
The question is which laptop should i buy, one with preinstalled windows or one with DOS?
2. The second question is about warranty. From market i have gathered that there are 2 warranties. First is called local warranty and the second is called international warranty. I dont know much about them. So please guide me.
I will be open to any kind of suggestions regarding these questions. Plus i will also welcome any other kind of suggestions which you think that one should know definitely while buying a new laptop.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
