Readers who'd rather chop off their arms with a hacksaw than touch Windows Vista with a very long pointed stick can still avail themselves of XP down at Dell - albeit at a price:

Dell website offers Windows XP option for £44,414

Crikey. Mercifully, you can pay for your OS of choice at a mere £1,510 a month, which should help cushion the violent blow to your wallet. ®
