I am wondering if there is somewhere that I can go to buy a new laptop, and have enough customization choices to where I can order the thing without an OS on it. I already have a disk that will put an OS on the thing without having to waste so much money on something I already have. Also, if you have any recommendations on a good laptop, feel free to mention them. I'd like it to be top of the line and be able to run games like COD, price isn't much of an issue (within reason).

Thanks in advance.

I have windows XP SP3 on a boot disk that I made and prefer. I was able to cut out all of the unnecessary crap that Microsoft puts in their operating systems and make my version of XP run much faster.

If I understand correctly, you have installed this version previously and intend to use it again. This violates the license agreement with Microsoft and also violates our TOU, which states that we won't help anyone suspected of using illegal software. In addition, the fact that you have somehow modified your version of XP may also violate Microsoft's license. While your original post was hardware-related, you're asking for help getting a system on which you intend to install an illegal version of software, so I'm afraid we can't help you further with this matter. If you feel this topic has been closed in error, you may PM me or any other admin.
